SACD DSD support?

Hello!

I'm trying to play a WAV that was encoded from a DSD source on my analog 5.1 output thru foobar with no sucesss. Anyone can shed a light on me on this one? Everything I hear is some sort of "white noise" when I try to play back the WAV....

Help?

As far as I know there is no way to play back right now of playing back a DSD stream from a SACD on a computer atm. You most likly caught a DTS conversion of a SACD which is encoded in a wav file. In order to play this correctly in fb2k you would need the foo_dts component and you need to rename the file to .dts

Hope this helps

Yes, you could thank Chris Norman, but beware, he is advertizing illegal software here, and this, in my experience, will lead to thread removal and warned level raise.

Sorry for advertising illegal software.

Of course the right way should be:

Burn your legaly aquired dts album on CD as an unedited wav track and play it back on any (hardware or software) device that has a dts decoder.

BTW: Not really related, but it's no wonder why 5.1 playback has a really bad pentration rate. Glad that Philips didn't had the vision of computers playing back music
