Using a DVD (BD) drive as a Digital Transport

Recommended Posts

I am considering SATA DVD or Blu-Ray drives as I would like to use a DVD (BD) drive as a Digital Transport

 

For discussion, has anyone here tried or seen details online to make a digital transport from a SATA DVD (BD) ROM drive?

 

It would be interesting to read others experiences to see if it is possible to avoid using noisy computer power supplies etc, and build an effective digital transport.

 

I may have seen in the past some kits to convert old IDE drives to make CD players but nothing, nor DIY plans to convert SATA drives to allow extraction of digital data in the form of S/PDIF or I^2/S data streams?

 

Thanks,

 

Simon

Musicaltech used to have this particular board but it couldn't be found anywhere now, maybe you could try asking Rockna Audio / Audiobyte just in case they might still have any Musicaltech products stored somewhere

The Dac doard is made by the diy arm of Rockna/ Audiobyte known as Musicaltech

 

Most likely something like this should be the only (affordable) alternative at the moment

Relatively expensive options

Other than that, stuff like Raspberry Pi 4 with 44.1KHz Linux kernel frequency will give you a very nice I2S output.
