About Me

  1. I very much love the Vivaldi interpretation of Dixit Dominus by Negri in the (originally?) Philips recording "Sacred Choral Music Vol. 5: Dixit Dominus RV595, Sacrum RV 586, In exitu Israel RV 604, Introduzione al Dixit RV 635" CD released in 1990. I am really crazy about it. Its like a 300 years old, early fusion of John Coltrane and The Doors ;-). But the sound quality is just awful, spoiling the joy of listening to a loud replay. Any idea which forum I could use to gather some music lovers to join me and approach Philips for a remastering...? Money does not matter... (stupid to say this
  2. Oppo has announced a few more details on their upcoming UDP-205 disc player.... Lossless High-resolution Audio Audio format support has been expanded to multi-channel DSD64/128, as well as 192kHz/24-bit PCM used in high-resolution lossless formats such AIFF, ALAC, APE, FLAC and WAV. (DSD64 is played back in native mode or converted to PCM, DSD128 converted to PCM.) http://oppodigital.com/blu-ray-udp-205/
  3. What is a good approach to listening to DSD files (.dsf mainly) with a Chord DAVE? Edited: (my error in setting things up).
  4. Now I finally found a solution to extract SACD ISO files on the fly. No need for Terminal, or the SACD-Xtract software... I just use AudirvanaPlus … This cool software has ALL I NEED!!!!!! There is an option: "Add Files To iTunes" in AudirvanaPlus. Be sure first to uncheck the two boxes in the iTunes Prefs->Advanced: "Keep iTunes Media folder organized" and "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library". I then drag my ISO file to the new opened window, set the "Quality of the proxy files to "Uncompressed" and whushhhh…. AudirvanaPlus extracts, and converts all t
  5. Hi all, I own some DSD files encapsulated into FLAC container. I do not know who is the author of those files but they play well on my previous Lumin Music player. Today I've tested those files in Jriver 18 but It don't play them. Jriver perfectly read tags of those flacs but if I listen to the sound I can hear only noise. I've some other .dff files that jriver play well. So my questions are: 1) there is some way to play those flacs in Jriver? 2) there is some tool to extract .dff files from those flacs ? thank you all.
  6. If you're a fan of Steely Dan and surround sound listener at all, you probably have one or more of Elliot Scheiner's fantastic 5.1 remixes of either Gaucho, Two Against Nature or Everything Must Go, or Donald Fagen's first three solo albums, and know how mind-blowingly good they are. In 2004, Universal listed Steely Dan's first six albums (Can't Buy A Thrill through Aja) as multichannel SACDs "coming soon" on their website, but they ended their support for surround sound music in early 2005 and the whole project was scrapped. Recently a small group of us from the QuadraphonicQuad.c
  7. Hi guys, I've been using A+ to convert my SACD.iso backups to .flac files. Unfortunately, my network player can't play 88.2kHz files, so A+(which is a great program for everything else) can't get me what I want. I have since discovered Saracon, which looks like it might be able to provide me with 24/96 files. However, I don't know how to mount/load/open my SACD.iso files. When I attempt a DSD to PCM conversion it asks for a .dff file. How can I produce a .dff file from my SACD.iso files? Or do I have to use a different program to convert my SACD.iso files to a PCM format?

  9. This was my post in the SACD Ripping thread (via Oppo/Pioneer). I didn't want to derail that thread so I created this one about the value of SACD. Thanks Do you love SACD / DSD sound? I do and always have. Why is there so much negativity about it on the other sites? Whenever it is mentioned, people say it's just remastering, or DSD is fundamentally flawed, or it's a placebo affect. To me it's night and day with transparency, bass clarity, speed, far better defined images, lack-of-fatigue in the highs, no digital shrillness, analog-lik
  10. I currently own a Pioneer PD-10 which handles SACDs as well as CDs. It also plays back DVD-Rs on which have been recorded hi-res audio files sourced from shop-bought SACDS (my backups). I have many other 96/24 recordings of my own tho' which I'd like to put onto disk but lack the knowledge of how to do this without downgrading them? Is a DVD-R the answer and how to burn the files so that they playback on my Pioneer with no downgrade in quality? Thanks, peeps.
  11. Hi - I am new to this forum but have recently upgraded a lot of my equipment from speakers to receiver, blu ray player, 2 channel pre and power amp as well as my most recent additions the DAC2 DX from benchmark and the cocktail audio x40. My challenge is that I have music all over the place from my macbook stored locally to a NAS server by QNAP (and WDmycloud) to streaming services and SACD/CD etc. my goal has been lately to have a separate 2 channel system from my marantz sr7009 which was previously my all in one component for music/movies and more. my issue as of late is that I do
  12. Luxman D-08u SACD Player and DAC "The D-08u looks so good and sounds so good playing discs or files via its USB input that at its price I can’t think of a better or more versatile way to crunch bits into music." "Where the Luxman player succeeds (and where so many other one-box players fall short) is in making the SACD layer sound like a better, fuller, more realistic version of the music captured on the CD layer." -Dennis Davis (The Audio Beat, October 2015) If you're looking for a player that is capable of getting the most out of your SACD collection, as well as, yo
  13. Hi everybody, I am completely new here (from Belgium, btw) and I have a question on how to rip SACD on an Oppo BDP-103EU. In picture attached you will find the numbers " 8550 " (which I suppose is the MediaTek MT8550 chipset) Although this is the setup (soft-and firmware version) of an Oppo BDP-103EU unit, I am not sure whether this unit indeed can rip SACD because 8550 is not 8580 (as is needed) nor 8560 chip. Can you eventually send me a picture of an Oppo 103 setup page with soft- and firmware details of which you are sure they will work for ripping
  14. Just got this, terrific sound quality and "feeling"! I am very impressed with the mono re-mix. Also fired up the PS3 for the first time in a while, glad it still works. Hopefully, as with Sgt. Peppers, there will be many more good re-master releases over the next few years as we reach the 50th anniversaries of what I consider to be overall the best albums in "popular" music. Full disclosure, I was 15 when the Airplane came up with this. Happy listening!
  15. When I buy SACDs, how can I be sure they aren't just Redbook CDs that have been upsampled?
  16. I've collected a number of SACD ISOs I've been converting them using the sacd_extract.exe in Windows to DSF. I'm wondering if this is the best way to convert since some of the SACD ISOs may be in DSD128 or higher? Is there a conversion tool that supports outputting the higher resolutions, or will they all be converted to plain DSD? I'm not trying to upsample DSD, just preserve the original resolution. I've heard a couple of DSD512s that have sounded better than any recordings I have heard so far, except for the few times I've been able to hear master tape or copies of master tap

    SACD Ripping News

    Hi everybody, Maybe I am not posting this into the correct forum... but here it is : Anyone who knows how to do this can copy / paste this text where it belongs so that everyone hears about this news. I can rip any SACD stereo or multichannel on my recent Primare BD32 MKII, (with the latest firmware) so this one can be listed with the Oppo's and Pioneers among others. It makes ISO files (bit to bit copy of my SACD, as well as DSF files (as tracks) It works fine with the USB stick with the AutoScript folder (with 3 files in it) and together with ISO2DSD and i
  18. Hi, I have been looking for a multichannel DAC 5.1 that plays DSD64 multichannel SACD ISO images but seems that not many solutions out there. I use foobar SACD plug in (PCM) in 2.0 The EmmLabs DAC8 MKIV 8 Channel D/A and D/D converter seems interesting Manufacturer Link: EMM Labs - DAC8 MkIV Multichannel Digital to Analog Converter Price is around $8500 EMM Labs and Sonoma Pricing An out of production model DAC6e look interesting too: EMM Labs - DAC6e SE 6 Channel Digital to Analog Converter I suppose that a PCI card is required to input in the DAC.

  19. My apologies if this has been asked elsewhere, but I couldn't find a duplicate thread. What is your favorite SACD? Your choice could be for reasons of sound quality, great music, or both. My answer probably depends on the day of the week you ask me, but for today I would say, Ray Brown - Live at the Loa. And yours? Joel
  20. This past week I built a Carbon. Thus far I have had no problems playing any files except SACD. Is this a design flaw with the Carbon or simply something I need to change or alter in my Win 8 or MC 18 config? Does anyone have a suggestion that may help my situation? Resource Monitoring on my Carbon NT2800MT running Win 8 32 bit for a variety of files trends as follows: 44.1 kHz at 16 bit => CPU & Max Frequency averaged 15% and 65% respectively 192 kHz at 24 bit => CPU & Max Frequency averaged 17% and 70% respectively 352khz (SACD)* => CPU & Max Frequency av
  21. Hello, I'm working on a DSD to PCM conversion tool and I've just been looking into the click that you often get at the start and end of the converted tracks. I've written up a short entry on the topic here: https://code.google.com/p/dsf2flac/wiki/ClicksAtStartAndEnd which some may find interesting. All the best, Jack.
  22. Hi there Just trying to do some ISO-DSF conversion. I've used ISO2DSD a little and have not heard clicks, but now I'm neurotic about it and trying to find the most perfect solution so I don't have to do it twice. I've got as far as the new non-clicking version of sacd_extract. It runs, and looks like it's working, but then Windows (8.1) immediately says "sacd_extract has stopped working". The programme in command line doesn't get further than trying to do the first track, and Windows offers to close it down. Any idea what could be causing this? (It's a classical album probably with

  24. Hi there Is it just me or are there really zero places to download the newly Pink Floyd SACD releases - Wish You Were Here and Dark Side Of The Moon ? I would so much like them in DSD files..but can find nowhere to download. Only to purchase as SACD , but I can not rip them myself to DSD. Hope anyone know a place. Buch
  25. Hi Guys, My first post here. I'd like to start by saying hi to everyone! Now the question: I have a PS3 ripped ISO. When I open it with foobar2000, it plays using the famous SACD plugin at a sample rate of 176.4kHz (on converting to PCM). When I extract the tracks to the DFF format, it plays in foobar2000 using the DSDIFF plugin at a sample rate of 192kHz (on converting to PCM). My major observation was that the DFF format sounded better and louder. Is it in reality, better quality than the SACD plugin's 176.4kHz? If anyone has tried this and can help me understand, I'd
