Yes, that upsampling to DSD does wonders for CDs too. My CD collection has never sounded so good.
I've been weighing up investing in a Ruby KI, and I'm wondering how the DAC functions on it. I'd be interested in replacing my separate DAC with one integrated into a SACD player. I stream from a hard drive a lot, though, so I'm concerned about its ability to handle high-bit files. I'd appreciate any feedback,
It was designed to handle pretty much any digital format you throw at it.
I think the Ruby KI is very similar to the SA10 in most aspects. I recently purchased an SA10 and use the USB connection to the DAC from my computer running Audirvana, (through PS Audio Lanrover). This works very well, and seems to handle high resolution DSD files with no problem. Of course,
Audirvana is doing a lot of the work here, but the SA10 does work much better than the SA14 I had before.
