Far better would it be to use a natural source, like they recently did at the Fox stages to evaluate the best converter for their orchestral recordings. Blind listening tests were done comparing the converted version to the source (a life string quartet). I guess I don’t have to tell you who won that contest…

The bottom line is indeed comparing to the source ( I do that all the time with every new design). What does it do with your image, your spatial information, your depth? If there is a huge tonal difference like you describe, there is usually something wrong with the setup.

I'm glad i'm not alone in saying you CANNOT eval a converter with anything but a analog source. To do otherwise is merely a waste of time
