Some time ago I posted a picture showing how the DSD release of some Hibike OST was really just 48Khz PCM converted to DSD.
After I found out about the abitscope filter I took a look at the bit distribution after requantizing to PCM. Top->bottom is MSB->LSB respectively.
Yup, that does look like 24-bit audio, with the bottom 8 or so bits fluctuating due to roundings during the PCM->DSD->PCM requantizations.
Just get the PCM/CD next time, DSD is too cumbersome to work with anyway so all work is done in PCM anyway.
