    SACD playback with Sony UBP-X1100ES

    I am going to go out on a limb and say something hat streaming and download are another impact to the SACD. Now that file storage is relatively cheap for these formats it appears there are a few web sites where DSD files can be downloaded.

    SACD playback with Sony UBP-X1100ES

    Todd Erwin I purchased the X1100ES specifically because it had the analog outputs. But then as I read more I got confused about what exactly is going with file conversion or whatever. Exactly what would an amp that supports DSD do or not do as the case may be? I am going to take a guess that...

    SACD playback with Sony UBP-X1100ES

    JohnRice yes that is the device I bought. Ironically, it was Sony Support that told me I needed something like that NOT Best Buy. I am going to take your advice, eliminate this adapter and go straight from the RCA outputs from the player directly to the input in the receiver and trust that I...

    SACD playback with Sony UBP-X1100ES

    JohnRice Thanks for the response. I am still trying to learn all this. Does that mean the internal DAC in the player converts the DSD to analog and sends that converted analog signal through the analog outputs? So I am still getting the improved audio quality of SACD/DSD? I have attached the...

    SACD playback with Sony UBP-X1100ES

    I have recently restarted my interest in audio and video. Much has changed in the technology and I feel like I need a computer engineering degree just to play music! I recently purchased a Sony UBP-X1100ES to play 4K UHD movies but also to play SACD audio discs. I am running the audio through...
