    Super Audio CD decoder Latest version


    SACD decoder is a command-line application which takes a Super Audio CD source and extracts a 24-bit high resolution wave file. It handles both DST and DSD streams.

    The application reads the following input:

    Supported output sample rates:


    sacd -i infile [-o outdir] [options] Specify the input file (*.iso, *.dsf, *.dff) -i, --infile The folder to write the WAVE files to. If you omit this, the files will be placed in the input file's directory. -o, --outdir The output samplerate. Valid rates are: 88200, 96000, 176400 and 192000. If you omit this, 88.2KHz will be used. -r, --rate Only extract the 2-channel area if it exists. If you omit this, the multichannel area will have priority. -s, --stereo Display progress to new lines. Use this if you intend to parse the output through a script. This option only lists either one progress percentage per line, or one status/error message. -p, --progress Show detailed information about the input -d, --details Help on syntax and parameters -h, --help

    Why 96 khz? They are not best suited 88,2 khz or 176,4 khz (integer dividers 2,8224 Mhz)?
