W6 - DSD vs. DXD: Extreme DSD and PCM Resolutions ComparedChair:
Dominique Brulhart, Merging Technologies
Morten Lindberg, 2L (Lindberg Lyd AS) - Oslo, Norway
Everett Porter, Polyhymnia
With the recent release of 11.2 MHz Quad-DSD production tools, more than a decade of DSD and DXD productions and the rapidly growing availability of DSD and DXD material available for download on the market, there is a constant debate in both the professional and the audiophile sector about the difference between DSD and PCM and ultimately which one “sounds better.” This panel would like offering the opportunity to two known specialists of these formats, Everett Porter from Polyhymnia and Morten Lindberg from 2L to present some of their recordings and discuss their experience making productions in DSD and DXD. Recent recordings in DSD and DXD will be presented and recording, editing, mixing, and mastering techniques and considerations using DSD and DXD will be discussed and compared.
