Um, maybe I'm missing something here, but I don't get Nika's position that setting up this kind of A/B test would be that difficult. My Genex GX9000 offers PCM and DSD recording and the analog section is the same so the only difference is the digital recording technology (PCM vs DSD) . Doesn't this take care of his major concerns, or am I missing something?

FWIW, I've done the test a few times and I find DSD recording to be a very worthwhile undertaking. And the Genex makes it a risk free proposition: if DSD is outlawed tomorrow, I just use the PCM converters for all future work. More folks should invest a few hours and actually listen to DSD for themselves; its not that difficult.
