Welcome to the HFH Rip SACD with a Blu-Ray Player thread! This thread is not intended to rehash or further detail the well established PlayStation 3 SACD ripping method, nor the more recent Blu-ray player method, that in each case typically involves use of a command line interface (CLI) via the Terminal or Console, and/or a Telnet/SSH session. While both of the above are perfectly workable solutions, they are also more complex than most non-expert computer users care to tackle. The CLI can be intimidating and/or tedious for those unaccustomed to it. This thread instead seeks to detail in concise fashion the use of certain model Blu-ray players when coupled with the superb Sonore ISO2DSD freeware, which offers an easy to understand GUI that can be configured and operated with just a few clicks on Windows, Mac, or Linux based computers. This specific mode of operation will utilize the Blu-ray player as a file server (aka the server method), with the extracted SACD tracks sent over Ethernet or WiFi to a destination computer residing anywhere on the same local area network (LAN) as the Blu-ray player/ripper. We'll focus on extracting the 2-channel stereo tracks only, converting them directly to .dsf files and forgoing a full ISO disc archive, electing not to rip any multi-channel tracks. This saves significant storage space, ripping time, as well as the post-rip time and effort needed to split the stereo from the multi-channel in a full ISO. Additionally, the initial core and subplot of this thread will center on use of the recently discovered (Feb. 2018) inexpensive Sony brand Blu-ray player models that currently hold the distinction of being the "world's least expensive SACD ripping solution". While no longer in production, these Sony Blu-ray player models are available on the used market for as little as $20, and were commonly sold all over the world by various retailers including Costco, Walmart, and Target, so they should remain easily obtained for some time to come. The essentially similar procedure for using certain model Pioneer, Oppo, and Cambridge brand Blu-ray players will also be covered, if any Haven members prefer to use those machines instead of a Sony.
