Wouldn't it be great if everybody got an answer within 24 hrs. ;-)
Slightly off-topic, but as a resonse to: "because I am interested in the potentially superior sound which these types of files may provide":
I personally wouldn't bother with dsd files at all.
To cut to the chase: The reason is that the existing mastering/processing equipment in studios can not process dsd, and will need additional conversions in the digital domain.
Both before being able to process an actual raw dsd recording, and then again after the mastering processing is done, encoding it to dsd again.
And one thing that anybody who is serious about digital audio will want to avoid (or keep to an absolute minimum), is converting audio streams.
dsd is pretty much a marketing ploy.
So is it nonsense when some people say they believe a dsd release they own sounds better than a pcm release they own?
Not per-se, since there is a good chance that the dsd release has been mastered slightly different than the 'original' pcm release.
(perhaps even motivated by clever marketing)
