Two obvious options:

Since you already bought the discs, find an illegal rip to download. In my book, that's totally okay.

Two, "Mr. Wicked", who helped get the whole SACD ripping on a PS3 thing going, is working on an external USB device that will rip SACDs for you. See other thread on this site.

Don't know when it will be available. From his blog I'm guessing by the end of the year, as it seems he is close to a working prototype.

Just to summarize the issue, SACDs have a copy protection that makes ripping impossible. However, the "key" was broken for a certain now outdated PS3 player. Sony quickly did an upgrade to the firmware that changed the "key" so it is only a very small subset. These tend to be old and break (yellow light of death) so they are limited and folks with them are very careful not to over use them as once they are gone, they are gone. There are services that repair said machines with varying degrees of success ranging from not repaired at all to 100% repaired. The new thread is for someone to build a USB version of the PS3 using the old drives but a tediously hand coded processor that would act as that limited version of the PS3 player but could be used with any computer with a USB port. This is under development and is likely to happen but who knows when (and it might not work as a possibility).

 

That gets you up to speed on the last five years or so of DSD ripping from SACDs in a nutshell.

 

Looking forward, you could find someone with the PS3 who is willing to rip for you, perhaps. You would need to send them an USB drive to save the files to, of course. They may already have the rips if they are popular albums such as "Who's Next" etc but you would want to make sure they were the exact versions (i.e. the Japanese SACD version, etc). I would, of course, be hesitant to send them to someone I didn't know at least for some time, on a forum. But there are folks I would trust. There are folks on AudioCircle doing this for each other already, however, so I think it is going on more than folks talk about.

Positive emotions enhance our musical experiences.
