Ripping SACDs with a PS3 - is this still a thing?  I ask because I'm thinking about selling mine, along with a stack of SACDs.

I still use my PS3.  I guess due to the fact that certain players with the Mediatek chip (e.g. Oppo 103) can supposedly now do it too (and I have a couple of 103Ds but have not tried it), it is not as rare as it was a few years back.

I figured new methods for ripping would become available.  Thanks for the input.

I have not followed it that closely but bookmarked the page just in case the PS3 becomes unusable - https://www.computeraudiophile.com/forums/topic/28569-sacd-ripping-using-an-oppo-or-pioneer-yes-its-true/

I've got a few questions regarding ripping SACDs via the OPPO method. Please forgive me if the answers are out there on the web; I did have a good look but there's so much information, it's somewhat overwhelming.

When ripping raw ISO files (over Server Input with ISO2DSD), should the DST box be checked, or should it only be checked when converting an ISO file to DSF/DFF? And, should Dual or Multi be selected when ripping raw ISO, or does that not matter?

With regards to the clicking that occurs during playback between tracks converted from ISO file to DSF (using ISO2DSD), I've read that sacd extract version 0.3.8 should prevent such clicks from happening. What version of sacd extract is used by ISO2DSD? If it's not 0.3.8, how to I get that?

Thanks in advance.

I think I may have found the answer to my second question and the answer as to why clicks appear between tracks during playback of DSF files. Most of my SACDs were ripped by my PS3, which used sacd-extract v37 whereas ***I think*** sacd extract v38 is used by ISO2DSD, the method of ripping for OPPO.

I'd still like to know the answer to my questions regarding DST and Dual/Multi prior to ripping an ISO image, but at least I can find out if SACDs ripped on my OPPO then converted from ISO to DSF play without clicks. If they do, then ISO2DSD must use sacd-extract v38. I'll let you know how it goes.

I re-ripped Dark Side of the Moon to test whether my thoughts on the sacd_extract tool might have something to do with it, but I'm not sure it does as the clicks are still notably present during DSF playback and whisper-quiet present during DFF playback.

From what I can gather, sacd-extract v38 is included with Version 7 of ISO2DSD, so I'm stumped as to why the clicks are present as v38 was supposed to have sorted the issue. Fwiw, I didn't check the DST box prior to creating an ISO, but I did check DST prior to creating DSF and DFF files. The only thing I I've yet to try is to check DST prior to ripping an ISO and leaving it checked prior to subsequent conversion from ISO to DSF and DFF, but if that doesn't work, I've no idea what will.

I ripped Dark Side of the Moon again with the DST box checked and left it checked for subsequent conversion to DSF and DFF, but the clicks remain. What else can I try to get clickless playback of DSF and/ or DFF on my Fire TV running Kodi?

I tried converting DSF to DFF this morning using Bogi's conversion tool, but the clicks remained. Unless someone can figure this out, it looks like DFF playback with minor, barely audible clicks is as good as it gets for DSD playback on Fire TV via Kodi.

Hi,

I have a used Sony PS3 CECHA01/60GB with CFW 3.55 installed for sale.  Has had new thermal paste installed. Plays SACDs without a problem. I have used it only for SACDs. I have never used this for games so cannot attest to its functioning at that level. I am selling because I do not need it any more.  Asking 120 dollars.  Price includes shipping to continental US and paypal fees. Also includes a non-Sony wired controller.
Sold as is without warranty.

Let me know if you are interested.  It can also be found on the usaudiomart website. http://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649375010-sony-ps3-playstation-with-cfw-355-installed-plays-sacds/

Best Regards,



Lawton

Hello everybody

How to introduce myself... i am just a uncle, living in paris france (sorry for my bad english) , who loves good quality music and has a collection of SACD records (around 150).
I offered my nephews a PS3 in 2007
As today they are older and interested in more recent models, they gave me back the console by telling me that there was a possibility to digitize the discs with this PS3, "just do it yourself Tonton, you just need to read some tutorials and find right web sites"...
So I read, I read...
I am very happy to have discovered this forum, topic: 'SACD ripping using a PS3' on AudioCircle website.I am aware of all the efforts and all the work that this represents.I thank the participants of this forum and especially the specialists for their explanations.

As I'm far from being an expert, your help would be really useful. 
But I know, It seems I am very late, several years late (too late ?) and may be that subject is now obsolete in 2017 and each SACD owner may have already saved his/her collection of records.?

The current situation:
My old PS3, CECHC03 series, was in CFW version 3.55 Rebug and cleaned all the games. But in this configuration when I try to play a SACD that I saw in the PS3 music menu as a CD, SACD 2 CH and SACD Multi, I get an error for each track regardless of the disc.
When I reinstall the original software Sony OFW 3.55 everything works again and I can play and listen all my SACDs.

So it's a return to the beginning

Today most of the links listed on specialized websites are too old (2011-2014), and they all seem broken. What would help me is to get links still valid today for:
1- the firmware PS3 cfw 3.55 known to work
2- the sac-ripper.pkg and the keys if they are still required.
3- the last sacd_extract_0.3.xx for windows (10?)

Do not hesitate if it is possible to send me directly by email those software that work on your installation.

Thank you in advance for all the help and support you could give me

Jacques
