    Re: DSD ripping

    If an SACD is a Hybrid SACD it will have 2 layers, the DSD layer and the CD layer.

    If an SACD is a Single layer SACD it will only have the DSD layer.

    You cannot rip the DSD layer of an SACD using dBpoweramp Music Converter, only the CD layer.

    Thank You mville,
    How would I rip a non hybrid or single layer sacd to wav file, I have no idea on the best way to do it (sample rate, bit rate, settings etc.)

    AFAIK, the only way to extract the DSD file from a SACD, is by using a Sony PS3, with earlier firmware. I did look into this, but a combination of owning less than 30 hybrid SACDs, the complexity and time required, plus the rising cost of the "correct" PS3, I didn't take it further.

    I have seen seen a SACD ripping service advertised, but as not all of my SACDs outperform the Redbook Stereo layer, again I didn't pursue.

    You can "rip" SACD music by hooking an SACD player digitally to your computer and then recording the input to a lossless format of your choice. Naturally there will be no logs, support for error correction or tagging, you will have to cut the songs manually from the whole recording.
