Later this year dCS is going to update the rest of its devices to accept DSD over USB. The Paganini and Scarlatti clocks are going to have USB inputs and maybe the Dacs to (I don't know)
I assume other dac building companies wil follow with the DSD over USB protocol.
Now, why is it that not some smart company builds an external SACD romdrive that will rip SACD's to DSD files on your computerdrive.
I heard it has something to do with license fees, but if people are willing to pay the prices that dCS dacs cost, then the price of an expensive SACD ripping device will not be much of a problem. I mean, it might still be cheaper then some of the Shunyata powercords or MIT ic's.
Like me, there are lots of people without a playstation, but who would love to rip their SACD's just like their redbook pcm CD's
