CommentThe original 2013 Acoustic Sounds' DSD download *.dsf files were first lowered with Korg Audiogate v2.3.3 by the minimal dB needed to not register a CLIP warning. Then Foobar2000 SACD Decoder plugin v0.7.1 was used to calculate the DR directly for the resulting *.dsf files. 01 - Wanna Be Starting Somethin (-0.1dB) 02 - Baby Be Mine (-3.2dB) 03 - The Girl Is Mine (Paul McCartney) (-3.8dB) 04 - Thriller (-1.2dB) 05 - Beat It (-3.7dB) 06 - Billie Jean (-4.8dB) 07 - Human Nature (-0.3dB) 08 - P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing) (-1.3dB) 09 - The Lady In My Life (-2.1dB) ---- Acoustic Sounds notes: DSD file created by Gus Skinas from the original Sony Super Audio CD cutting masters. A NOTE ABOUT DSD AUDIO LEVEL In most cases, our DSD offerings are identical to original DSD data used to create the SA-CD masters. In essence, they are first generation SACD master audio. As a result, DSD audio levels conform to the MaxPeak specification as defined in the SA-CD Scarlet Book. It is possible that some titles reach, but do not exceed the MaxPeak limit which is about 3dB over 0dB-SACD. So it is possible that levels can be 3dB higher than the PCM limit. Most DSD capable playback equipment conforms to this specification. In the case where the DSD playback system does not meet the MaxPeak specification and distortion is heard, it might be necessary to lower the level of the DSD file with DSD processing tools such as Audiogate from Korg.
