I have been ripping my CD's using DB Poweramp and have gotten to my SACD's. Some are duplicate titles that I have already ripped a CD for. Is there any advantage to utilizing the SACD cd layer rip? I dont want to overwrite the MOFI DSOTM with the SACD cd layer if its not superior. I could put them in a seperate folder if there is an advantage.
DCS has proposed a new DSD over USB standard which they have demonstrated but not released to public. Mytek has a DSD DAC already shipping based on this proposal. EMM Labs are also demonstrating their implementations. Playback Designs already have their own implementation.
PureMusic/Amarra can support DSD native streams over USB. I think PM even does it on the fly (no manual conversion needed on your side) to PCM.
DSD can be mapped to 24/88.2 which should be better than RBCD.
One way to rip is to use some HDMI output universal players like Oppo or SACD player like a PS3 to convert DSD to 24/88.2 over HDMI, use something like an Atlona HDMI splitter to optical and use something like a Weiss INT203 to take in the optical signal for recording.
Or if you can find an old PS3, get a native ISO/DSD rip.
But I remember reading in the dCS event that they are trying to get more to support native DSD. I think HDTracks has access to DSD masters. Linn too I would expect since they have a large catalog of SACDs. Doggiehowser (Answers | This Thread)
