SO have anyone tried playing DSD files with the new update for DX 50? Is it any good?
DSD for DX 50?
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
Forget about the DSD files I just listened to flac from the ripped SACD of DSoTM and it's magnificent when I compared it to a redbook flac it makes it sound like a 128kb mp3, SACD is so dynamic and the redbook one sounds like it's flat and uncontrolled.
Too bad I can't play it through my DX50 which has a way better DAC and AMP compared to my PC setup but it's worth it just can't wait to upgrade the DAC on my PC once I have the money.
I believe you're playing the redbook version of the flac files of DSofTM and not the real 6 channels true ripped from SACD, when i play the files on my Dx50 it just doesn't play at all even though it detect it as FLAC. Also I have read somewhere that there's currently no portable player which can play SACD files. Personally I use foobar2000 and u can tell it's real 6 channels because it's stated in the settings and you see 6 channel waves.
You can check if you're is real SACD or redbook by the size as well e.g "Speak To Me" is about 45mb
