RE: Fully committed Computer Audio-phile with lots of sacd's

Ted, the chances are that the reason the Oppo-based 24/88 didn't sound good was the Oppo DSD-to-PCM conversion, or the jitter from the player. Capturing those on data files is not the answer, I don't think (I could be wrong) but as I said a PITA for someone who has no patience to sit and record a 60 minute SACD for 60 minutes, then go back and cut the file into tracks. Since we have established an email trail lets take one of your SACD's that I also own (you have my ISO list) and I'll send you, via dropbox, one or two songs...a diff version and a 24/176k Audiogate-converted version. You then tell me...

BTW, I don't know if cplay will do Diff-to-PCM on the fly (should be on a wish list), but eventually the ISO is worth having (for archiving and backup if nothing else).
