> I have to wonder if the limitations boil down to USB limitations.
No! The way I currently play DSD(128) if from a USB flash drive plugged into the USB port on my TASCAM DA-3000. It works just fine! The only problem is that the USB port on my TASCAM is limited to 64-GB flash drives, maximum. I would like to simply plug in a large capacity USB hard drive instead of making a bunch of little 64-GB flash drives.
I went on to further explain that it's not a limitation of USB *itself*; but with whatever USB hardware they threw in the other devices.
I know USB2 is capable of doing DSD128 since my DAC does it. But the point I'm getting at is maybe they didn't put robust enough stuff in the other players in order to keep cost down.
Well, the TASCAM DA-3000 sells for $1000 and has one of the best sounding DACs I've heard to date. That's the main reason I'm putting up with its 64-GB limitation. I've listened to a number of much more expensive DACs and none have impressed me as much as the DAC in my TASCAM DA-3000.
What DAC do you own that allows you to connect a USB hard drive and play DSD(128) directly from the hard drive?
