Hi Paul @adminpaul
I’m the very happy owner of a DSD Snr and looking forward to adding the Memory Player next year.
I was just listening to Dark Side of The Moon SACD on dad’s system (Oppo 105 Bluray Player and Denon 4520 Receiver).
Of course as a transport and Dac they don’t compare to the Memory Player and DSD Snr but I saw a video of yours where you mentioned the Memory Player will, ‘for the first time’ allow play back of the DSD layer.
I could be wrong but it appears my dad’s current system allows this. On the Oppo he needs to use HDMI-2 for DSD output (I’m guessing that’s the HDMI port that’s protected/encrypted/licensed) and his Denon needs to be in ‘Direct’ mode to allow direct DSD-to-analogue conversion, by-passing any PCM conversion.
I just wanted to ask, how this playback of the DSD layer on his system is different to the Memory Player + DSD Snr combination, in terms of ‘world’s first’. I very probably (most likely) didn’t understand the ‘world’s first’ part of your Memory Player video.
I hope this doesn’t come across in the wrong tone (sometimes people misinterpret tone in emails and forums etc). I’m a SUPER happy PS Audio customer here. Basically my dad thinks his system can already do everything ! lol
Apart from the quality of devices (there’s no comparison of course) what is the Memory Player + DSD Snr doing better and differently, specifically in terms of accessing the DSD layer of an SACD?
Appreciated in advance
