SACD &USB DAC

Rate this Entry
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

    Javier,

    SACD players will not provide digital ouput in DSD format via USB. so you cannot play SACDs directly through your DAC. There is a very lengthy thread that covers ripping SACDs using early firmware versions of Sony PS3 units to produce DSD files:

    At present, this is the only way that you can play the content of SACDs through your Weiss DSD capable DAC.

    Javier, that is why I provided the link. Or you may want to PM ted_b asking for his SACD Ripping Guide. It's all in there.
