New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: Anyone modifying today's Blu-Ray/CD/SACD players?

Well I'm not modifying but I'm getting use from a Sony Blu Ray player. I bought one off ebay for about £30 with a 3rd party remote. It was one listed as capable of ripping SACDs. I downloaded and created a memory stick that is put in the front slot and the unit powers on. The drive opens you insert an SACD it closes then appears to shut down. But it isn't it goes into a ripping mode which is accessed from a PC across my LAN and that records the tracks from the SACD as DSS files. I then transfer them to my server and play them using LMS and a Pi with USB output to my DAC.

Works well and plays at excellent quality with none of the restrictions of SACD players.
