Topic: Sample Rate Converter Quality of ADI-2 Pro vs Software-Based Solutions
I've recently been going back and forth with some users on the GearSlutz forums, and it seems the consensus of most on the forums is that hardware-based sample rate converters are nowhere near the quality of offline / software-based sample rate converters.
Is this true (in general), or is the sample rate converter on the ADI-2 Pro equally as good as a high-end software-based sample rate converter?
I only ask as software-based sample rate converters are pretty cheap (some are even free).
As an example, the following site:
...lists sample-rate converter tests using various software-based sample rate converters.
They even tested out the Mytek STEREO192 SRC (a $1,200.00 dedicated hardware-based sample-rate converter), that comes nowhere near any of the high-end software-based sample rate converters.
I'm just a little confused by all of this; any help would be greatly appreciated.
