I was wondering if anyone else wants this from their media player? I would love to be able to rip my SACDs in full quality and play them back over the network with a media player.

that would be great, but unlikely. the media player manufacturers won't consider this a large enough or an important market segment. You can do this from a home theater pc easily enough however. The price of building a capable home theater pc is about double the price of a decent media player but still under $600. The question is do you want to wait until someone does this, or just build your own.

AFAIK, it is not possible to RIP SACDs except for using an ancient PS3 to do it.

He was talking about playing, not ripping

Hi Mlknez,

I believe he was talking about ripping.

I think the answer to the OP is that there are no media boxes that support playback of DSD/DIFF files. That's pretty much the domain of the HTPC and the rare SACD player (if any).

Yes, but are they looking for a box to do both, or are they assuming that they will rip using a ps3 and just looking for a box to play the resultant files with?

I believe they want to rip with whatever they have now (PC,ect) then have a media player to play those files back at full quality. Thats what I took form the OP......Theya re looking for a media player with the support the files made fromt eh ripp....hopefully the OP will come back and answer the questions smile.gif

Sorry for the late response everyone.

What I'm after is a media player that can play back DSF files over HDMI as raw DSD. As far as I know it is not possible to do this with either a Linux or Windows PC.

You can do this with a windows pc. You just have to have a DAC that will connect via hdmi and will provide the proper edid to the source pc. My Integra dhc-80.3 pre/pro will do this with either foobar2000 or jriver using wasapi or asio drivers under windows 7 or windows 8.

Now that that is said...

I notice little to no difference between native dsd files and dsd files converted to pcm connected along the same path. I have both. You can accomplish the same thing with an oppo 93 instead of a windows pc. The 103 disabled this ability for some reason.

Is there a way to attach the Oppo to a network via USB and have it read from a server?

I have not tried it but I doubt it.   The USB "A" port cannot address the network, afaik.

Not via USB, but you can read SMB shares over normal ethernet. DSD files work that way, but not via DLNA (yet?)
