Playing SACDs on Windows

#1 Post by juverax » Sun Aug 02, 2020 8:43 am

The SACD (Super Audio CD) is a very limited niche requiring a special SACD reader:

To the best of my knowledge there are two Windows music players (free and portable) that can play an ISO image of a SACD, (but not the actual physical disc):

1) Album Player: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=23039
A very nice application that claims to be portable - not discussed outside of this post.

2) Foobar
the Super Audio CD Decoder
It is a component for Foobar that must be installed: ... Components
In addition, Foobar can convert the track to standard audio formats.
