Thanks, but can we just compare those number directly just like that ? PCM and DSD encoding are very different.

But really, K1X make RBCD sound comparable to any native hires. I’m impressed.

You cannot....every format, including vinyl, and every choice of "mastering or remastering" is replete with superior, good and downright bad examples. The numbers themselves don't tell you anything.

You asked a question "By Theory..." it was on that basis that I answered it.

Yes and I agree, I had annoying sounding SACDs and very Beautiful sounding RBCDs .

Oh and by the way, I remembered that MQA is not all about high sampling rate, it’s about it can recover what is
Loss at the ADC stage too. It can inverse ADC error. But
at the moment, they never mention this ability anymore,
They just promote unfolding. I read years ago from article written by Robert Harley, which I cannot find anymore. I Don’t remember the issue.

OR..

add an OP20A or OP21A (or Mutec REF10 for that matter) and use it to discipline the G02X for higher performance is also an option.

Mine too. Also my P1X. There is a click that I think is the drive grabbing the disc but nothing that sounds cheap or clunky.

That picture I took when I had K1 on demo many months ago.
I hope next year I can afford G1 and PS1. G01X is out of
Question as its cost is too close to that of G1.

Cybershaft OP21A would be my choice at that point.. better/lower phase noise and better Allen Variance results, jitter specs insanely low as a result and less than half the price of the G1. FWIW...

TOGA, believe me, SCAudiophile is our resident clock expert, especially with Esoteric digital sources. He has experience with a number of solutions over the years.
