Somehow i find this claims pretty bullshit regarding other things that must be proved at Hydrogenaudio,
I doubt that the internal "64bit" path has anything to do with better sound, that soinds like pure marketing to me.
When i read that upsampling from a 176/24 source to 192/32 improves the sounds Height and Claritry iŽd even vote to kick that thread in the recycle.bin!
