Without using a computer how can I play the flac files on say an audio system by plugging the Hard disc into the usb port.
Is this possible at all please, and any limitations, ideas?

Are new USB DAC with DSD capability able to reproduce an SACD from a SACD transport or a SACD player?.
Seems that manufacturer only allow to reproduce the SACD with an external DAC of its own brand.
Who knows something about this?
I have Weiss DAC with DSD and would like to use it with a SACD.
Thanks for any comment

Au contraire, my friend - just as ambient road noise is much louder than people think, concert hall SPLs are lower than people think, even in the middle of the orchestra. Here's a great study done on members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. It documented a maximum transient peak of 115.5 dbA using RMS-equivalent sound levels, and the highest SPLs were in brass and percussion sections
I've just found it amazing!
Schiit Loki is an interesting product at very affordable price tag. At this price point, there's not much competition on desktop DAC market and even less (none?) on DSD DAC market.
Loki is based on Asahi Kasei Microdevices (AKM) AK4396 DAC chip and asynchronous UAC2 USB interface is implemented using C-Media CM6631A chip. The AK4396 has been one of the most popular DAC chips in pro-audio converters. Loki is USB-powered. Analog reconstruction filter is optimized for DSD use. Since
In my opinion I do exhaustive and comprehensive research before making a decision. I call it being thorough, but the Delicious Dane (SWMBO) calls it procrastination. Whatever, so it takes me a while to get off the fence; no Housemartins quips please, even though I wrote the book they read....
My most recent piece of intensive research is a tough one to find my way out of. I have two "core" music listening locations. One, the main house, where I have a MacMini (SSD, music

Nice article how to DIY power cable for different plugs in your equipment. I'm gonna try it on my own, but using different cable and plugs:

To me, this can be an evidence, that most of the even highly expensive DAC's cannot do true 24-bit! Just reminded about it.

Sure you can cram 24 or 32 bit in their interfaces, but those 'lower' bits will be just covered in noise and distortion until they reach the 20-22nd bit levels (counting from 'top').
In studio processing, sure, they can use a 64
