now ripping a SACD is possible and we can play SACD ISO with foobar2000.
But still, we must convert DSD stream to a PCM stream and then output it to the PC soundcard or
a DA/C through USB 1394 HDMI or SPIDF, etc..

I saw the autodetect ASIO Driver Mode in foo_input_sacd plugin Preferences page of foobar2000, but I don't know any Devices(both soundcard and DAC)
that supports it. Now I'm really looking forward to a scheme that can play genuine DSD Stream with PC...

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

I think the most common approach is to lowpass/decimate the DSD into PCM and then play that down the same pathway used for normal PCM audio. This way the same chip can be used for either format.

My AK4396 is a delta-sigma type that should be very common. It can play PCM and DSD. It takes PCM and converts it to its own "Bitsream format" I guess it is multi-bit DSD. So there must be several topologies out there.

Is troll-adiposity coming from feederism?
