SACD to Flac settings

Post by smee »

Hi my first post Ive been playing around with the various settings to go from Sacd iso to flac.
normally the files are dsd 64 .if i leave everything on auto its ends up making 24/96 flac files which sound good .
i have also read that it might be better to match the sacd rate and maybe change to 24/88. or even 24/44
i will keep my original files to play on my main system its just so i can play the flac files on anything but i would like to keep as much quality as possibleim not too worried about getting the smallest file size possible

thanks in advance

I really cannot suggest the best settings, but I've also read that 88/24 is the best option. If it suits you, then it's all that matters.

Thanks for the reply seen some advice about changing into .wav first then into flac but XRECODE seems to do the job a lot quicker in one go and i cant hear any difference myself

Yes, there's no need to convert to wav. Convert to flac directly.
