Having not looked at the Korg info yet,

I wonder if this is equivalent to the DSD format that Sony developed
for SACD (super audio CD)?  Another not widely used (proprietary?)
Sony format, this one was inteded to be the next step beyond CD and to
compete with DVD-A.

By many audiophile accounts SACD is the "best-sounding digital format"
ever, better than 24/192. Early accounts by die-hard analog heads were
largely of the grudgingly-this-sounds-like-the-best-of-both-worlds

A coworker of mine invested in some proposterously expensive 8-channel
DSD recorder for location sound recording (NOT field recording, it's
luggable and runs on AC) and has just begin to play with it. No
reports yet

If it is DSD I'd be very curious to hear it, though without the
ability to edit/author/burn/listen to SACD... hrumph.
