It is 1-bit coding at a high speed. Theoretically it produces lower
artifacts but these are already very low, especially if you use 24
bits at higher bit rates. I suspect a commercial motive or hype. In
practice DSD is very similar to high speed pulse width modulation

I found a paper criticising 1-bit coding saying:

  "In recent years, we have seen the consumer audio industry perform
  a remarkable feat of salesmanship by proclaiming that 1-bit
  converters are better than multi-bit converters,"

Read it only if you have to. :-)
