You shouldn't be worried. It's a fairly well known process to
convert one-bit to multi-bit PCM. PCM starts out as one-bit files to
being with. But to put your mind at ease, read the Sigma-Delta
Conversion and Noise Shaping chapter in Pohlmann's "Principles of
Digital Audio" (a ubiquitous text for digital audio). It's chapter
18 in the fourth edition, but may be elsewhere in the current edition.
