    Converting a Blu-ray/SACD player into a digital DSD transport

    It shouldn't be hard to get a used player that does DSD output, I got my Sony for less than $100.

    Converting a Blu-ray/SACD player into a digital DSD transport

    Noticed Topping D90 does not support DoP over coaxial but I am sure quite a few DACs out there already do that. Certainly my MA element X and Mytek Brooklyn do that via both coaxial and optical, and there is no conversion of DSD to PCM when say a player like Oppo and Sony is set to output DSD...

    Converting a Blu-ray/SACD player into a digital DSD transport

    Good for you, but my experience tells me differently. My Matrix Audio element X has 4 I2S settings, and NONE of them work with the I2S output of my Denafrips Avatar CDT. Fortunately the Avatar has a second I2S output and it saves the day. As there is no universal standard I2S per say, there...

    Converting a Blu-ray/SACD player into a digital DSD transport

    This is certainly one of the ways but some of us still want to pop that disc and play for old time sake . I certainly rip mine too.

    Converting a Blu-ray/SACD player into a digital DSD transport

    As there's no standard I2S termination/pin assignment, connecting between two components from different brands with I2S can be tricky.

    Converting a Blu-ray/SACD player into a digital DSD transport

    That's good. I'm just very glad I can now choose not to rip, although I do, my SACD, and can just pop a disc into the Blu-ray player and hear it's full resolution through my DAC.

    Converting a Blu-ray/SACD player into a digital DSD transport

    Sorry, when you said "With the new gadget I2S HDMI, you can still play SACD via coaxial/optical however at 88.2Khz only.", did you mean in your setup? With coaxial DoP from this gadget, I'm getting RAW DSD to my DAC with no problem. However, this is my second unit, my first unit had issue and...

    Converting a Blu-ray/SACD player into a digital DSD transport

    I'm using similar product and can now successfully play SACD using a Sony BDP -S590 Blu-ray player via coaxial DoP.

    Matrix Audio Element X: Is compatible with spotify?

    I think it was mentioned somewhere that it's whether Spotify wants to be "connected" in a way like what Tidal and Qobuz are doing, for example, can be connected through Roon.

    This is my experience as well. I guess we are lucky using Roon as the interface? New app and FW update much better and basically effortless this time, compare to the last time.

    Spotify does not make plug in or connection with Roon, you can try Airplay with Spotify. Roon has built in support for Tidal and Qobuz.

    Yes you use the MA App for Tidal. I've used it and it works fine. I'm a Roon user so others here might have more experience on the MA App
