This is why i ripped my SACD.S you cannot use the player as a transport. you are stuck with the intenal DAC AND AMPS. i get the idea of theft but really why cant i if i own the disk do what i want.
i had to buy a unit and go through the hassel to convert and do it as i buy new SACD,S . its seems that there will never be a single format in the end and portibility is paromount for me .
and when you read reviews on music and quality downloads, and mastering versions . the hole thing seems to be tooo much work. i just want to play my music ....
