SACD ripping services?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I no longer can play my SACD's other than as Redbooks because my Sony player died and cannot be fixed.  On the Internet, I have been able to "borrow" iso's for all but two double-SACD albums and, thanks to ISO2DSD, have been playing the files as dsf's.  I still would like to have access to the two SACD's that I can't listen to in hi-res, i.e., "Yo Miles!" and "Sky Garden," both by Henry Kaiser and Wadada Leo Smith.  

 

I am aware of a company called Golden Ear, but I recall seeing there is a minimum charge that would not make it economical to use this service.  I don't want to pay more to rip these albums than I did to acquire them. 

 

Are you aware of anyone, perhaps someone local to me in the San Francisco Bay Area, who can handle small orders like this?

If you have a good number of SACDs, then it might be advantageous to buy a player that can rip your SACDs. I've seen compatible players priced in the $100.00 - $1000.00 (or more range). Here is a list of compatible players from the very long thread that discusses the topic:

 

 


Aurender N10, Esoteric F-05 Integrated Amplifier, Synergistic Active USB, Oppo 203, Synergistic Atmosphere Level 3 UEF Speaker cables, Legacy Audio Focus SE. ClearAudio Emotion TT.

Yes, SACD ripping has now become easier - and very affordable. In fact, the series of 2012-era Sony Blu-ray Disc players that can rip SACDs are available on the used market for as little as $30.

Thanks, guys, but I found iso's for all but these two titles.  I really don't have a huge need for a player now and it's more cost effective just to have these discs ripped.
