No, you can't get DSD from regular CD's.
Either from SACD or purchase from hi-rez music web stores such as this one: http://audiogate.bluecoastrecords.com/

Just saw this, i'll do my best :)
I've killed a few posts. As per : http://www.head-fi.org/t/704698/the-astell-and-kern-ak240-impressions-thread#post_10251073 1st hand experience or practical questions only. No speculation. That's exactly how the other AK240 thread ended up being a mess.
Subscribers, if you see something that's off, please report, don't reply or antagonise the posters.
Hey Ian, sorry been swamped this week, will do some prelim on the weekend..
Send your AK240 and other DAPs over. I'll help keep this thread alive whilst you're outta commission ;-). Rest well buddy.
