DSD files- where to get them?

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Just bought a Teac PD 501 hr CD player as a transport. I’ll try it with it’s own dac to see what it’s like, before it goes through my Beresford. It’s USP when released was that it plays dsd files from recordable dvd. Is it worth the hassle and if so, where can I get them?

No mate, I’d have to play the dsd files from the analogue outs, I think. It was (is?) a £700 player, so should be pretty good. I found a review that said releasing a player that only played dsd burned to disc was a bit of a foot shot and that people wouldn’t bother 🤔

I personally wouldn't bother , I mean buying DSD files then burning them onto a DVD seems a lot of faff .

Especially if you only enjoy classical or opera. There's a few sites out there which offer free downloads or samples, but it's not worth it really.
