GeekPerfect Playback Software for Mac

Seems like a bargain price for BitPerfect + DSDMaster, if you're in the market for those two items.

I wonder if it is available on the App Store, or just though LH?

 

Just through LH, I think. The two separate apps are available on the App Store, but they will set you back additional dollars.

Geek Perfect includes only a crippled version of DSD Master. Geek Perfect can play DSD files natively on a DSD-capable DAC, but otherwise it converts DSD to Redbook PCM. (Geek Perfect user guide, page 18, first paragraph.)

 

For owners of non-DSD-capable DACs, to convert DSD to higher sample rate PCM you need "DSD Master" (which I recommend as sounding better than the Korg Audiogate DSD-to-PCM conversion software).

Thanks for the correction, Bob. Serves me right for trusting what I read on the LH page without investigating further.

 

Also a good conversion tip. I've asked these guys if they could add the capability to convert DSFs (rather than being limited to extraction/conversion from DSD iso's), but no response yet.
