Does anyone own the Wyred4sound DAC 2? - Page 80

And I, for one, am not surprised that so many manufacturers are enabling DSD playback on their delta sigma DACs. That's simply the right thing to do. Let us play all the formats we have, especially that today's converter technology allows that.

Sorry, I just don't see the media with DSD encoded. All of my Blu Ray concert discs are standard PCM to analog.

If you want DSD encoded media try any of the audiophile releases from labels like Audio Fidelity, MoFi, ORG Music, Analogue Productions - they all release music on SACD. And BTW, when you play those PCM Blu-ray concerts your blu-ray player doesn't convert them directly to analog (see Paul McGowan's article above).

I don't really use SACDs much...and as I mentioned, the music I listen too isn't on DSD...not even close.

Yes.  When.......................would anything decent come out on DSD?  It could take forever.

There are a few classical recordings I've been considering buying in DSD format but other than that I will just wait an keep my fingers crossed.  I'd love it if somehow HDTracks added DSD files as an option, along with AIFF and FLAC.

The Computer Audiophile boys were trying to petition HDT to offer up DSD and nada.

We (CA members) need more clout; alliances, on our side. And a BIG stick! ksc75smile.gif

Yeah, I don't see HDTracks adding new servers to accommodate the 19 of us who want DSD files.

I was glad when they added AIFF!

OH, you had it good then. I'm a customer of iTrax - a small operation that I'm excited to support. But, I always make sure I'm able to multi-task when navigating the site. You'd think with only a few selections, the web experience would be both brief and brisk. rolleyes.gif

 

I stand behind what they're trying to do and their efforts, though.

BTW, SO, I just DL'd and had a great time listening to Anita Baker's Rapture in 24/192..biggrin.gif
