Frankly, this player will stream DSD files on a hard drive via USB. I just need to verify it will process multi-channel DSD via USB before I arrange for despatch of one to replace my S790.

Now that's disappointing.

I'm considering this player as a replacement for my BDP-S790 which has a rear USB port, that currently has a USB flash drive inserted for the reason you point out.

My BDP-S770 is my first BDP, purchased in 2010. I used it until late 2012 when SA-CD playback became dodgy with intermittent signal drop outs on both PCM and DSD outputs.
