I am new to computer audio, but am starting to build my collection of hi-res music files. I have been using mainly AIF as my principal content format, mainly from HDTracks.com. Recently I have run into Acoustic Sounds' new superhirez.com that offers a lot of files in a different format, DSD. They have a lot of the jazz titles I have been looking for, but there appears to be a catch. My software, JRiver Media Center 18, says they support DSD files. But, my Preamp/DAC (Classe CP-800) does not support that format. Furthermore, Classe has actually announced they will not support DSD on the soon-to-be-released Rev 2 of the CP-800 either. The question I have is whether I can use this format on my system. Does the software drive the file? Or does this simply feed the DAC which then converts the file to usable audio content for the preamp to use? Sorry if this is a basic question, but I am a bit confused on this subject. Hoping someone could help me.
