I don't see that this player has a digital out either and that's a deal breaker for me as well. Is DSD conversion the same as up sampling?
I just read the review in the absolute sound - it basically echoes what "stercom" has said - it kind of makes me want to purchase onei have had sony products in the past and was not that impressed (especially sacd players)but im very attracted to this piece especially after reading what stercom says and steven stone
Others may disagree, but in my opinion, its an excellent value at $1,999 based on its features, build quality and sound quality. Plus it has a 5 year parts and labor warranty.
As to sound quality - its the best digital playback I have had in my system. I have owned the following digital sources: Sony SCD-1 (both stock & professionally modified); SACD 777ES; Olive 4HD music server; Cary 306; Shindo Arome; Metrum Acoustics Octave NOS DAC; Eastern Electric DAC+; Sim Audio 100D DAC; Sony NS-755V (professionally modified); Monarchy Audio DIP/Upscaler; Sheng DAC-01A DAC; Logitech Squeezebox Touch with linear power supply, and various other digital sources by EAD, Denon etc., going back many years.
As to sound quality - its the best digital playback I have had in my system.My question is does the Sony provide the practical application when you are listening to Internet radio through the player of not only listening to it, but saving it as a track as a DSD file and/or as the original file as configured by the radio broadcasting source on the 1 terabyte internal hard drive.Otherwise, you are paying a lot of money for a radio.Thanks for the clarification
I have not used the internet radio function yet but it does not save radio signals as a DSD file on the hard drive. (I think that's what you are asking)
Thanks for the quick reply. If this Sony does not record radio signals as a file (DSD or otherwise), what equipment in the market fulfills this function for internet radio or even broadcast FM radio? Thx.
Marketing driven yes - simple to use, will pull over and store and play your entire library.This concept will serve 98% of their target market.Their target market is not technophiles that want every different type of option or ability to use in an infinite number of computer or software variations.
