Actually there is much debate about this in the recording industry. Many
believe that it is simply not possible to build a converter that is accurate
at 4x sample rates. It is very difficult, if not impossible to build a
converter that takes accurate 24-bit samples that fast. For that reason most
high fs converters (in fact most all converters, high or standard rate) use
a 1 bit design and then decimate to the desired sample rate/bit depth.
Have you considered using native DSD?
