If your A/D converter exhibits more than 0.1dB of DC offset, it's a very poor one. You shoul change it. That's not the key point for hot tracks. Inserting a high pass filter just leads to clean up some dBs in the infra frequencies, which leaves more place for music. It also kills the DC offset that is only a collateral victim.
