Satin isn't nearly as accurate... We did some comparisons -- doesn't really sound the same as a DolbyA -- but it is all what people like/perceives themselves. (Like my somewhat 'earthy' grandma used to say -- whatever blows your skirt up.)

Sounding good doesn't count IMO -- sounding JUST LIKE a DolbyA sans distortion is important. Refer to the demos. The most recent Cars comparisons (compared with a 192k/24bit professionally done CORRECT release, vs a leaked CD being decoded by DHNRDS -- they sound literally almost the same -- the DHNRDS doesn't have the veil of distortion.)
