  1. DFF to DSF conversion

    dff2dsf from Signalyst accepts only DFF files with uncompressed DSD content. It doesn't accept compressed (DST) content. foobar2000 and Jriver Media Center accept DFF files in compressed DST format, but HQPlayer not. The tool dff2dsf from Signalyst doesn't make any decompression of DST content - it simply converts uncompressed DSD content from DFF file format to DSF file format. DSF files always contain uncompressed DSD content. AFAIK no tool to decompress DST content of DFF files is available. To solve your issue you need to re-extract files from your SACD ISO. You have to extract ISO to uncompressed DFF files or directly to extract ISO to DSF files. You don't need to do it as 2 step operation - at first to extract DFF files from ISO with one tool and then to convert them to DSF with another tool. You can obtain DSF files from SACD ISO in a single tool. You can choose Sonore ISO2DSD or my ISO2DSF.

    Edmond, is your account able to run a program as Administrator? You could try to open Command Prompt window as Administrator, then navigate to your DFF2DSF folder and then run AddContextMenu.bat, for example: cd /d d:\tools\DFF2DSF AddContextMenuItem.bat

    I didn't test it with Desktop folder. I would suggest you to try some shorter path like c:\dff2dsf you suggested. My folder d:\tools\DFF2DSF looks like on the attached picture. I have too less information to be able to reproduce your issue.

    Correction of my previous post - note it is without the /b switch: In AddContextMenuItem.bat substitute the line whoami /groups | findstr /c:"Mandatory Label\High Mandatory Level" > nul with this one: whoami /groups | findstr /c:"S-1-16-12288" > nul I tested it just now, that works on my PC and most probably works also on non English Windows.

    Hi Giorgio, if you aren't using English edition of Windows OS, then I know one fix. In AddContextMenuItem.bat substitute the line whoami /groups | findstr /b /c:"Mandatory Label\High Mandatory Level" > nul with this one: whoami /groups | findstr /b /c:"S-1-16-12288" > nul

    All works as previously, forget the previous post.
  7. HQ Player

    I used 3.16.0 with my Win10 NAA last 1/2 year. I did Creators Update on my Win10 HQPlayer computer (no change on the NAA computer). Because of startup crash I needed to update HQPlayer to 3.17. Now I cannot access my Win10 NAA anymore - I tried both NetworkAudioAdapter and NetworkAudioAdapter IPv6. Miska, did anything change in the way how NAA is discovered between 3.16 and 3.17 ? Is there anyone using Win10 HQPlayer computer with Win10 NAA after Creators update on HQPlayer computer? Do I need to update NAA? My NAA version is
  8. It should work. The forum page you linked contains more ways how to reach the result. Just try it and post your result in the correct thread. Blu-ray and SACD disk formats are not similar.
  9. Blu-ray disks are not SACD disks. This thread is about ripping SACDs. You can follow this threads: This old article doesn't refer new tools but it can also help:

    I provided link to other thread in my previous post, just click on it. Cebolla showed how to transcode the BBC stream to FLAC.

    Miska, do you have any idea? I tried to follow Cebolla to get the BBC stream into HQPLayer using the latest VLC nightly This is from HQPLayer log: # 2017/04/17 09:22:49 clReadFLAC::OpenURI(): FLAC__stream_decoder_process_until_end_of_metadata() # 2017/04/17 09:22:49 clMainWindow::trackSelected(): clHQPlayerEngine::GoTo(): clHQPlayerEngine::Play(): clPlaylist::SetTrack(): clAudioTransport::OpenURI() failed My playlist file: http://localhost:8080/bbcr3.flac (I tried both)

    I downloaded the latest nightly build and tried the transcoding. It's a pity that HQPlayer Desktop doesn't understand the transcoded stream. HQPlayer detects the existence of the stream (it allows to insert it to HQPlayer playlist), but it it is unable to play it. EDIT: I pointed Miska to this thread and posted my HQPlayer log excerpt in HQPlayer thread.

    If you are using convolution or pipeline processing with impulse response WAVs then your results make sense. That processing in DSD domain consumes much more resources than in PCM domain.

    Not exactly this. You can get all Windows sounds into HQPlayer, but I know only a solution using foobar2000 and limited for fixed sample rate and bit depth. You can try the following: Set a virtual cable product as both default input and default output in Windows Control Panel | Sound. For example set both to Line 1 from Virtual Audio Cable product (or use VB-Audio HiFi Cable). Set them to a common sample rate and bit depth according to your music source. Use foo_record Recorder component in foobar2000 to play Windows default sound input through foobar2000. Configure it for the same bit rate and bit depth you used in point 1. Use the solution from my signature to stream all sounds from foobar2000 to HQPlayer, set it to the same bit rate and bit depth you used in previous points: Stream to HQPlayer Desktop from foobar2000 I can play all Windows sounds this way as DSD128 via my HQPlayer NAA.
