    [codec] DSD (SACD) Decoder

    DSD (Direct Stream Digtal) is the audio format used for Super Audio CDs (SACD). This codec is able to decode .dff files (DSD Interchange File Format). At this time of writing, it is not possible to read the audio from a SACD disc as no PC based drives exist.

    DSD is an unusual format in that it is 1 bit with a very high sample rate (2822400 Hz), from this it is possible to create a 24 bit file by reducing the sample rate.

    DSD input plugin based on Sebastian Gesemann's dsd2pcm

    It is able to decode .dff and .dsf files, dsf files are also able to be tagged.

    Sounds very interesting, but what is the practical use if it cannot decode SACD's? Thanks.

    Re: DSD (SACD) Decoder

    I have tried converting some 5.1 dff files and all I get is a portion of the song which is just noise.
    I have tried many different settings for both wav and flac they all come out the same.
    Details on the file
    Bitdepth = 1
    Bitrate = 16934
    Sample Rate = 2822400

    Latest version of dB (trial)
    Any ideas or any additional information that can help you help me.

    TIA

    Hi,

    I have some SACD ISO files. Understand dppoweramp only can read and convert Diff files.

    Can it be read and converted to Flac or Aiff by dbpoweramp?

    Thank you

    Hi,

    I tried DSD to WAV codec

    Performs DSD64 files OK, but not DSD128 (outputs a file said to be 176.4kHz/24bit but sounds horrific)

    Thank you however
