Toward the end of the page that Neil Tungate provided there is a PDF that
goes into a little of the details of 1 bit vs PCM

I think the last few paragraphs in the PDF doc answer your question by
stating that no advantage will be gained by 1 bit to PCM conversion until
widespread adoption of a 1 bit format will be had, but then at least you
will already be there. In other words, PCM for practical listening and
distribution purposes for now and 1 bit for archival with the hopes that it
will become the standard.

Thanks to Oryoki for this interesting new bit of info. ;^) (pun intended)

Best Wishes,
