Here you can download examples of different dither types available at proffesional industry. The samples are amplified so that the dither noise is easily audible. You can also check using a FFT view the different noise shaping profiles used.

SSRC or FB2K dithering is not available, but If I had space enough to host the files, I could upload equivalent test samples to compare, when I had some time.

According to the available pool results, the best dither without doubt seems to be MegaBitMax Ultra. I fully agree with this, even when SSRC strong ATH noiseshaping would be among the best ones. The famous Apogee UV dithering would not wink.gif

I was actually reading about how dither works. I was wondering why we can't achieve a better effect in analog, i.e. after D/A conversion? Apparently the solutions we mention all dither digital files to make the the result more pleasurable but then don't we still have the discretization/quantization problem? Couldn't we achieve better results if dither is postponed after the digital to analog conversion?
