[No theories, only actual hearing results wanted] What I am looking for is to hear reports of actually hearing and comparing between either FLAC or APE (the two very common lossless formats) and DSD. I have read enough theories and debates, the more I read the more confused I become. So I would like to ask a favor from AK members who can play digital formats through a decent setup. The reason I ask for this is because my system and room acoustics are not optimal so it would be unfair to test/compare these two formats here. If you are running a good enough stereo setup then I hope you can help to enlighten me. I don't know what standard parameters to measure but I think if you have a system that can let you hear good sound stage (or imaging) from recordings that are known to have such quality, then I think it'd pass. I know mine is not up to par because I could hear very good sound stage from a local dealer's sound room but not a tiny bit of it in my oddly-shaped bedroom using the same speakers playing the same tracks. I would have a chance to move to a better house in two years and hopefully can have a better environment to set up my gears, but at the moment it's just impossible in my place to do this. Your input could help me to decide what kind of lossless tracks I should collect before moving to a better place. I'm not an audiophile so please pardon me if this question sounds naive. Please educate me: Is DSD definitely sound better than Flac/Ape? A reminder again: No theories, just actual hearing reports.
