DSD 128 or 256


Hello folks,

I am considering Lampizator Big 7 DSD/PRE for next upgrade.  I would like to know how important is to get the DSD256 upgrade at a additional cost. Frankly, I have not even heard or downloaded any files in DSD256 or 128 yet. I am very content with Tidal streaming quality through my Aurender N10. 

Lampi comes standard with DSD128 and charges 500euros for DSD256 upgrade.  I would love to hear opinions from folks who have heard or compared the DSD128 or DSD256 files with Tidal streaming. 

Thank you!

Hi lalitk,

This may be very DAC dependent, but with a Mytek, I can't really hear a difference between DSD 64 and higher. I do seem to like DSD a little more, but can't say why exactly.

Tidal streaming is usually pretty good. Listen to the Chet Baker or Mel Torme albums as some examples.

Best,


Erik
