Best player software for native DSD files


Recommended Posts

Try Audirvana+, HQPlayer and JRiver, and see which you prefer.

 

I'll note HQPlayer has its own custom sigma-delta modulators for DSD material. Not true AFAIK with A+, don't know about JRiver.

Foobar + SACD plugin is pretty good sounding, and markedly better than JRMC IME and it's free

 

The best sounding IME is HQ Player

 

which DAC do you have ? Hopefully DSD capable, but if not HQ Player can convert DSD to PCM as can JRMC

 

Not sure about Foobar SACD plugin doing DSD to PCM

ED, thanks for the mention of Foobar, which I'd forgotten.

 

If his profile is current, the DAC is a DSD-capable Mytek.

 

Ah, see he's beaten me to it. :)

Last time I tried was early January so that I could listen to a Yarlung Records quad-rate DSD. It's quite good indeed, but wonder if it could not be better. Perhaps trying with an update is in order. I'd definitely recommend it.

 

It takes some setting up for DSD using the SACD plugins and ASIO plugins, but it's worthwhile.

foo_input_sacd was released already in 2011. DSD to PCM is possible from the beginning and ASIO proxy foo_dsd_asio is not necessary for that.

 

Expect of foo_input_sacd yet foo_input_dsdiff exists from other author: foobar2000: Components Repository - DSDIFF Decoder It was released yet in 2010, but it supports only DFF to PCM and no new version exists since 2011.
