Topic: Native dsd and DoP

Hello, I need a clarification, if possible. The manual of the Adi 2 Dac says: native dsd256 support. However, based on my understanding, the dsd direct function carries the dsd stream as DoP. Of course the dsd stays dsd during this process but I was wondering if such a method can be properly called native dsd or if, in order to achieve true native dsd compatibility, the dsd signal must be carried just as it is and not as DoP. Of course I do not even remotely think that there might be a difference, in terms of sound quality and I am not even interested in dsd per se (I am converting everything to 24/96), but I’d like to better understand this particular aspect. Thank you.
