Yes, spontaneity is curbed when one does not have their full library. That was not my intent when I said that one could upsample based on need. My point is that my Firesign Theater, Monkees, Red...
Here is a theoretical idea being discussed a bit over on the T+A thread. These are my takes on what I am calling a proposed option called "HQP Offline".
Since DSD512 realtime upsampling is so cpu...
I'm gonna move this discussion over to the HQP thread. Other than the massive storage issues, one other benefit to this theoretical HQP offline idea is that now that you have extremely well-done...

As I stated in my first post (and in my SACD ripping guide) ripping and extracting SACDs is for those music discs that are your personal property, and is primarily intended for two purposes: 1)...

Only in that the 180 was listed in the original post (which I can no longer edit) and was presumed to be a MTK8560 chipset. If the actual truth is that is is another chipset aside from 8560 or 8580...

First off, always use sacd_extract v0.38, which fixes the bug that caused clicks extracting to DSF (final blocks were truncated). Second, if you are not sure you have sacd_extract v0.38 then simply...

And yes, post 26 dropbox link is the Oppo Autoscript. Make sure the USB stick has a folder in it named Autoscript (and no parent folder) not just 3 files.

It's wonderful to see all these new SACD ripping successes. I thought I would remind folks of some SACD ripping tips:
* here's a major one:...
Thanks. I guess I haven't really measured what a lack of CUDA would do to my I7-6700k build when trying DSD512. My URendu was on loan and is now back. I will update it to networkaudiod 3.4.0.

No way I would use a NAS to run HQPlayer. Upsampling to DSD512 (for example) requires a hefty cpu and good motherboard/power, etc. Unless I built my own NAS (I own a Synology) I would keep HQPlayer...

Unfortunately, this forum engine has an edit time-out, so my first post (and most others) are no longer editable. In hindsight I should have made this an article.

This is all great feedback, and clearly requires me to amend the instructions at the top of this thread somewhat. I figured that, but assumed it might get more complex...not realizing that the most...

That a "now" or a "no"?

Cost: Amazon (US) has used BDP-160s and 170s shipped from Japan for $230 all in.
A used Oppo 103 is very likely a better overall player, SACD ripping notwithstanding.

Yes, it is VERY possible that new firmware could block this method. Please read the firmware notes and proceed with caution (for many of these machines new firmware notes may list only special disc...

In ISO2DSD, when extracting ISOs, always check the DST box and always choose DSF. DFF does not support tagging and there is no reason to use it.

BTW, welcome to CA all you new folks! :)
07-22-2016, 05:57 PM
Right. Just as I recommended for PS3 ripping, do not do anything other than creating an ISO. You want an ISO for many reasons, not the least of which is that is the entire disc image for backup,...

Yes, as I mentioned earlier, there are customizations out there. So here goes: There are at least three different Autoscripts:
* the one I originally linked (and seems to be working fine for some...
07-22-2016, 11:00 AM
No idea if the list is complete, and that is why I asked on my post for others to chime in if they found another one. However, given the degree to which the early adopters have tested this, I gotta...

I've invited another experienced Mediatek ripping user to join us and help out. He also showed me how we can run sacd_extract manually from the telnet console, and watch the ripping process. For...

Sorry, but I never said I invented it. I said I would make it available to CA users.
07-21-2016, 10:24 AM
OK, here is the link to my dropbox folder called SACD. Inside it are the two folders:
* Autoscript for empty root drive of USB stick, and
* SACD Extract for the two files that go on the pc...
07-20-2016, 07:57 AM
I will repeat: this ripping capability is available for those BD/universal/SACD players that have the MT8580 or MT8560 chipsets ONLY!
Telnet is the only communication vehicle I am aware of that...

the ripping times are exactly like the PS3, i.e about 2-3mb/sec and therefore about 20 minutes or so.
