Andrew, if you are interested to know about the DSD problem then seek and you will find. The problem with the format is well known. BTW, do not stress the “DSD native form” as the 1-bit SACD that you know is not a proper DSD but a cheap Sony surrogate of original 4-bit DSD.

Tom, so you say that since you do not change volume, do not do rendering, so not apply any compression at digital level and just splicing the feeds you do not engage any DSP engine that does the double conversion? I very welcome to this level of digital hygiene, if it is true.

Andrew, who has opinions is irrelevant. I have expressed my view about what they call DSD nowadays in the appropriate places. This all bluff to make uniformed people gullibly pursuit to a new definition of appointed happiness. However, his forum is not a platform for you or any other to get education about formats. It is Chanel Classic ‘s forum, they made a decision to record in DSD and it is what it is. The fact that they allegedly do not “master” in DSD domain is a good indication. The reality is that formats themselves are important but not as critical as 90% of quality of sound is lost during barbaric mastering. Even a simple 44K/20bit file that was juts recorded and played in raw form without any DSP processing able deliver a quality that is very rarely seen by regular consumers. It is not about format but amount of conversions, rendering, coding, processing and the rest things that very violently strip soul from music…

I think you are very wrong, opinions are very relevant for without them we are nothing but empty vessels. It is opinions that drive us all forward and especially the technologists who work to produce the very formats that you dislike. Scientific measurements can prove all sorts of things but it is what your ears hear and how your brain interprets that sound that matters. From what I have read there are plenty of people who strongly disagree with you on all sorts of musical matters. If they are right or if you are right is a matter of opinion and shall ever be so, however annoying that may be to you.

The music is what matters and Channel Classics does a superb job at offering great music from some really talented musicians in a variety of formats to suit all. Too much argument on the pros and cons of doing this or doing that just detracts from the listening pleasure.

That is, of course, only my opinion!

Roman, I don't understand how to reply to your question, "if it's true". I stated how Jared produces the stereo release of his recordings. They're mixed in analog at the session, and edited in Pyramix in DSD, or DXD crossfades in post processing. There's no EQ, reverb, DSP functions, or any other post processing functions applied. There's no other way for me to say how he produces his stereo recordings. Jared does talk about his production techniques on this site under the heading General Info > About Recording Equipment and About Channel Classics. In the latter, there's a link to a 20 minute video with additional information.
