I don't know how true that is. And I think you might be barking up the wrong tree. There's no converter that will magically change the sound of a mix. In fact, what we're generally paying for with expensive converters is to try to stay as close to the original signal as possible... And to handle hot signals gracefully, I s'pose.

If your bounces sound different to the multitrack, then that is a problem you need to sort out in your DAW or monitoring setup, AFTER doing a null test to check that your ears aren't playing tricks on you.

The sound of a record is in the performance, tracking and mixing. Esoteric hardware is the sprinkle of seasoning on top.
