  1. I think I had the same problem as you. I can now rip to a USB stick, not the server solution. I'll PM you.
  2. I managed to have the USB flash drive working perfectly, but trying the server methode with the ISO2DSD program I get the same error message as you do. Whenever you find a solution please let me know.
  3. Bought a Sony bdp-s590 yesterday on the cheap. Have used many hours today to set it up. Where struggling with PuTTY. Was unable to Telnet the Sony machine. Finally I read on page 111 " 2. Discrepancy in Telnet method AutoScript file Takeaway: Although “inetd” is presumably the correct daemon to launch on other players to enable Telnet access, it does not seem to be the case for the Sony S590. Inspect your AutoScript and AutoScript.TSS and if necessary replace “inetd” with “telnetd” before attempting a Telnet connection to your S590." Checked it and that f
  4. There was some DVD-Audio discs that were watermarked. Can't remember which ones. I googled and in Stereophile back in 2000 there was a poll about this https://www.stereophile.com/content/what-do-you-think-watermarking-sacd-or-dvd-audio-discs Looks like there was no hurray for that 17 years ago. The story continues. The discussions are the same, only new technology.
  5. This is is one of the reasons I don't listen very much to "modern" music. It's not equal and will only last a year. My hope is that f.ex EDM goes away in a few years. I know. I am not modern. But, who cares. Many like EDM and it's part of the modern music. Me myself do not like it. Mainly because I am not able to listen to it for a very long time. I like to listen to an album on my gear and love it when I feel in my heart and soul that the music has been loved by those who made it and also understood by does who produced and mastered the album. DR is just an indicator and
  6. I would like to speak about a tiny company that IMO have promoted audiophile music in many different formats to give the audiophile listeners choices to select from. The company is 2L. If you like classical music you will not be disappointed. I read at the cover from some of my discs : TrondheimSolistene: Divertimenti (from 2008) They include audio on both SACD and BluRay disc. The selections are: SACD: Stereo: DSD (DSD64) and CD (16-44.1) ; Mch: 5.1 Surround (DSD64) BluRay: LPCM 24-192 (Stereo + 5.1 Surround), DTS-HD Master Audio (5.1 Surround 24-192), Dolby True HD (5.1 Surround
  7. I think that would take too much time from the developers working on the core part of Foobar as they focus on the basics for the player. Foobar is a powerful open component architecture allowing third-party developers to extend functionality of the basic player, including the ability to fully replace the user interface. Foobar is relying on others to extend functonality. SACD is f.ex done by Maxim. To install the SACD plugin it's a must do to read the "Foobar for Dummies". In addition there is an upnp plugin. Have a look at the Component page at Foobar's website. I find Foobar ve
  8. Been reading this thread and me myself settled on using Foobar several years ago. Never looked back. Tried several solutions at the time, but none of them where close to Foobar including the DarkOne 3.1 skin plus the SACD plugin. My stereo collection is stored on 2 x 4TB disk (plus 2x backup, so 3 copies). One disk stores music in PCM (Flac) and the other DSD (DSF) files. All stored in a tree structure in the following structure ; Artist => Album => Songs. I have had to store on different diskdrives because of diskspace neeeded for my collection. I have CD's in a "PCM" folder (
  9. I hope this DAC will do both Multichannel and stereo in both PCM and DSD.
  10. Specification of the The ES9038PRO SABRE DAC; ESS Technology :: ES9038PRO http://www.esstech.com/files/7414/5193/1716/ES9038PRO_Product_brief_121715.pdf
  11. I agree 100% with you. All my music is in FLAC and DSF format stored on my own HDD and NAS. Available in either Stereo or Multichannel. I have currently no interest in MQA. Neither has my wife. She has not heard of it and couldn't care less. :-)
  12. 2L has their testbench here; 2L High Resolution Music .:. free TEST BENCH All their albums are originally recorded in DXD and available in a wide range of resolutions, including DXD, DSD64 and DSD128 and now MQA along with physical products like CD, SACD, Pure Audio Blu-ray and vinyl. Morten Lindberg, the man behind 2L, says that a really good recording should be able to bodily move the listener. Welcome to the nordic sound ;-) fiske
  13. For those who would like to test different formats of the same piece of music I would recommend to check out 2L - the Nordic Sound At the top right there is a pull down menu "2L Brand Store". One of the pull downs says "Test Bench HD Audio files". The formats are DXD, Flac and DSD in stereo and 5.1 . 2L has been at the forefront for many years in the HD Audio business.
  14. Just thought I should write about some findings I have had the last week. Might be that I have been slow, but that happens. I use Windows 8.1 and Foobar w/ DarkOne 3.1 Skin as my player. In addition I use the SACD plug-in from Maxim. I have up untill now been playing SACD ISO files and DSD files and the DAC-2 DSDse DSD64 light switch on and sounds fantastic. Most of my music files are even though in FLAC format (44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192). Last week I made some changes in the setup of the SACD, foo_dsd_asio, plugin. This points to the W4S ASIO driver. Then I configured
  15. Listening to Rod Stewart "Merry Christmas, Baby" (flac 16-44) from 2012 through the DSDse. What an wonderful relaxing christmas music and a wonderful performance from the W4S DAC. Have a nice week-end everyone.
