Hi

No DSD.  Have to go to the BDP2 for that.

Slightly OT. I just upgraded to a BDP-2 this week. I have a BDA-1. Do I need to upgrade the DAC to convert DSD files or am I okay with the BDA-1?

Thanks.

Hello,

you need the BDA-3 if you want to play DSD files. Highly suggested as it is a fantastic dac even with PCM.

we won't prevent playing dsd files over USB to a DAC that supports it, but would not recommend it... at all

I have to ask do you think this unit would be on par with a transport at the same price or better in terms of resolution running into a bda-2

Hi,

why did you say so? I don't understand what you're meaning...

Can you run 3rd party software on the BDP-Pi?

Maybe means SPDIF will work better than USB.

But 95% of Dac accept DSD via USB only... Bda3 also via HDMI... You cannot use SPDIF

I think just Chris could explain his comment.

The question is how much guys really use DSD. I personally play 44.1 mostly.
Specs for my DAC (not Bryston) don´t mention DSD for SPDIF but I found DSD64 working perfectly.
This is through a homebuilt player using Pi2 and Hifiberry Digi+.

But I like BDP-Pi and hope to buy, depending what European shops will charge.
