What are DSD files
DSD stands for Direct Stream Digital, a format that uses a single bit to represent the amplitude of an audio signal. Unlike PCM (Pulse Code Modulation), which uses multiple bits to encode the amplitude and frequency of an audio signal, DSD uses a very high sampling rate (2.8224 MHz or higher) to capture the audio waveform. DSD files have the extension .dsf or .dff and can store stereo or multichannel audio.
What are the benefits of SACD-R
SACD-R is a term used to refer to a DVD disc that contains an SACD image file. SACD-R can be played on some SACD players that have a fault or a firmware that allows them to read DVD discs as SACD discs. SACD-R can also be played on some universal players that support both DVD and SACD formats. SACD-R can offer some benefits over regular SACD discs, such as:
Lower cost: SACD-R can be created from blank DVD discs, which are cheaper and more widely available than SACD discs.
More flexibility: SACD-R can be created from any DSD files, regardless of their source or quality. You can create your own SACD-R from your own recordings, downloads, or conversions.
More control: SACD-R can be customized with your own track information, text information, and album art. You can also edit or delete tracks, track points, and text information as you wish.
What are the limitations of SACD-R
SACD-R is not a perfect solution for playing high-resolution audio on your SACD player. There are some limitations and drawbacks that you should be aware of, such as:
Compatibility: Not all SACD players can play SACD-R. Some players may not recognize the disc at all, some may play only the stereo layer, and some may play both layers but with reduced quality or glitches. You may need to try different brands and models of players and discs to find the best combination.
Quality: SACD-R may not have the same quality as regular SACD discs. The quality may depend on the quality of the original DSD files, the quality of the disc image file, the quality of the burning software and hardware, and the quality of the playback device. Some factors that may affect the quality are compression, error correction, jitter, noise, etc.
Legality: SACD-R may not be legal in some countries or regions. Creating and distributing SACD-R may violate the intellectual property rights of the original artists, labels, or publishers. You should respect the rights of the creators and use SACD-R only for personal and non-commercial purposes. 061ffe29dd
