It's called sacd_extract nowadays found here http://code.google.com/p/sacd-ripper/downloads/list
It's made by the fellow who developed the sacd_ripper for the PS3 so you'll be able to extract the dsd data from the ISO image.
It is a command line program, so open a command window and enter sacd_extract -h to see all the options.
You'l see this:
Usage: sacd_extract.exe [options] [outfile]
-2, --2ch-tracks : Export two channel tracks (default)
-m, --mch-tracks : Export multi-channel tracks
-e, --output-dsdiff-em : output as Philips DSDIFF (Edit Master) file
-p, --output-dsdiff : output as Philips DSDIFF file
-s, --output-dsf : output as Sony DSF file
-t, --select-track : only output selected track(s) (ex. -t 1,5,13)
-I, --output-iso : output as RAW ISO
-c, --convert-dst : convert DST to DSD
-C, --export-cue : Export a CUE Sheet
-i, --input[=FILE] : set source and determine if "iso" image,
device or server (ex. -i 192.168.1.10:2002)
-P, --print : display disc and track information
-?, --help : Show this help message
--usage : Display brief usage message
Using this document you can see how to setup different software players for DSD playback: http://www.auralic.com/download/dsd_playback_setup.pdf
It will show how to setup Audirvana, PureMusic on Mac and Foobar, JPlay, JRiver and Signalyst HQPlayer on Windows.
Best sounding player is JPlay BTW.
Goodluck and give us some feedback on how it sounds please
