The 24/192 sampling is clean. I'm using it to transfer my LP's to DVD-A and they come out sounding awesome. I'm saving my files to an 8 GB 133x flash from Transcend that was [$] and it works perfectly. The only problem with using CF is the data transfer method. If you use the Firewire output under Windows, the best data rate you can get is S100 because that is Microsoft's 1394 support decision vs. USB. And into Linux, I'm getting the same even though I have a 400/800 Firewire card. My 1394 CF card reader dumps twice as fast. I believe the HD-P2's Bios is set for S100 no matter what you are dumping to via Firewire. So if you want fast data to computer dumps you have to pull the CF card and use a USB 2.0 or Firewire reader. I try to avoid the card swapping because of the micro-pins in the card slots that may get damaged if you are not carefull inserting the card.The unit has only BWF type WAV output and that is not compatible with my Linux DVD-A authoring program. So I have to load the song file into a WAV editor and resave it. That creates a standard WAV file header that is compatible. Other than that, the HD-P2 is everything I wanted.
