For analog-to-digital conversion of the samples described below we used the HAPI A/D Audio Interface of Merging Technologies. It is able to transfer the analog signals of both our sources into five respective digital audio-formats:
16 bit / 44.1 kHz (CD-Audio)
24 bit / 96 kHz
24 bit / 192 kHz
1 bit / 2.8224 MHz (DSD 64 = SACD)
1 bit / 5.6448 MHz (DSD 128)
For each recording, we have created a graphic protocol using the audio-analysis tool „musicscope“. This protocol illustrates all relevant audio parameters. We hope that you can gain interesting insights through our listening comparison: TRUST YOUR EARS!
Stockfisch publishes these 10 audio files on an USB flash drive. The user will be able to play the files directly from the drive by plugging it into an appropriate Digital-Audio-Player. Or the soundfiles can be transferred to a system fitted with an audiophile HiRes-Software-Player.
