Andreas Koch of Playback Designs has brought a new DSD resource list to my attention. Produced by Jesus R. of Sonore and Simple Design (, and Ted Brady, he of the "SACD Ripper Guide," this listing put a lot of DSD resources in a single spreadsheet over at Google Docs.

You'll find it at:

We are also making these files available locally; just click HERE to download the .PDF, or HERE for the .XLSX.

Note that this file may take a few moments to load from the Google Docs site, so you'll want to be patient. You can use the File/Save As option to save this to your local drive. Either .PDF (Acrobat) or .XLSX (Excel) formats should work fine; I tested both.

If you're looking for a great all-in-one reference on DSD, this is an excellent place to go. The authors promise to keep this spreadsheet up-to-date as new DSD resources come online.

Very highly recommended… and many thanks to Jesus and Ted Brady for their hard work.

Sonore has a DSD-DAC with USB 2.0 (USB 2.0 input only)

Those of you who are looking for another alternative for DSD-capable USB 2.0 DACs, will want to check out the Sonore/exD DAC. It supports DSD and Double DSD, as well as PCM out to 192kHz/24-bit. You'll find the details at At USD $1,295, and if you're only interested in computer-based audio via USB 2.0, this is worth checking out.
