  1. When increasing the bit depth from, for example 16 to 20, 24 or 32 bits; Will it lead to a larger dynamic range, or will it just be a better “granulation” within the same dynamic range?
    Will an increased number of bits, be more important when the analog part of an amplifier operates in balanced mode. with app. 0-4.5V (or more correct -2.25V – +2.25V, maybe?) range, instead of just 0-2.5V, wich is the case for single-ended amplifiers?

  2. Does a one bit CD player have some of the benefits of DSD? I have a Conrad Johnson heavily modified Philips one bit CD player that got rave reviews as being analog sounding. Wondering what the correlation might be to one bit DSD.
