Ive been playing around with 24/96 flac and some sacd iso files thru a tube dac. I gotta say for the most part I am underwhelmed. Im kind of sick in my musical tastes that I am picking up albums in these digital formats that I aleady have on record and cd. Im not using the LP versions as comparison but the ones I have on CD already, played thru the same dac, sometimes sound superior to me. I should note that I listen to tons of live music at 24/96 from reputable sources that sound amazing on my system. I have enjoyed both analog and digital audio (going back to early days of cd, pcm/beta and dat) for decades. So what I am experiencing is not subconscious analog snobbery or something. Obviously I am either getting shitty rips or don't have something dialed in correctly. I might even need to start looking at spectrograms to insure some of this stuff is truly lossless. Any ideas?
