Yes, i encode with Foobar, but i don't tell Foobar to convert DSD to PCM. At least i hope so...
Foobar2000 (as any other player) always converts audio to PCM while playing or converting, it can not be otherwise Least because this "format" is only that is "understood" by soundcard.

BTW, that's not the real md5 sum right??
When I was working on this I looked for SACD-ISOs online and could not find any. If you don't have a PlayStation, how does one get them?
Another thing I don't really understand is why someone hasn't been able to put tags on DFF/DST files. The format uses the standard “chunk” format, and so it would be easy to simply put a ATAG chunk on the end with an APEv2 tag there, and the file would still be fully Philips compliant.
The reason might be, that both formats, dff and dsf, were both not regarded as very important formats, but more as freaky stuff. It is only about a year, that Mp3tag is capable to tag dsf and i dont think there are a lot more apps who can do that.
