Over sampling is useful to use cheaper/better anti aliasing filters. But DACs typically over sample internally.

ADCs and DACs didn’t always transparently oversample. Thirty years ago, some recording consoles recorded at high sampling rates using only analog filters, and production and mastering simply used that high rate signal. The digital anti-aliasing and decimation steps (resampling to a lower rate for CDs or DAT) happened in the final stages of mastering. This may well be one of the early reasons 96kHz and 192kHz became associated with professional music production [8].

Can Nicola (or anyone at A&H) confirm the over sampling of the QU ADC (given that the stage boxes are shared with the GLD,band their pad behaviour, I guess they are slightly different)…
