Unfortunately, there still are no SACD players with a DSD digital output that I know of, let alone a 6-channel DSD output, at least in the US (a lot of SACD players will have a digital output, but that's a pcm digital signal for the CD layer of hybrid discs and CDs). There are a few manufacturers with their own proprietary interfaces (EMM Labs, Accuphase and dCS) which make transports and DACs designed solely to work together and will send and process a DSD signal, but outside of those without modifications you can't get either a DSD signal out of the transport/SACD player or a DSD signal into a DAC. The industry has been slow to adopt a standard interface, and I'm not sure that they'll be doing it anytime soon. I haven't kept up with the latest developments, but I think this is still the case--hopefully someone will correct me if something new has come on the scene.
