    As for CD/SACD players, there are many folks who donít want to bother with the whole streaming thing. I have a customer with 15,000+ CDís/SACDís and he would never do streaming. He first doesnít think it sounds as good (heís right) and he likes the physical media and the stuff he listens to is mostly not on Tidal or Qobuz.
    I have about 12,000 CDs & around 200 SACDs. I ripped all of them to FLAC & DSF. Can't remember the last time I've played a physical disc.

    Who builds the optical mechanism in the Luxman? It's built in-house, right?

    The drive/transport mechanism is, but I doubt that the laser subassembly is.

    I got that part. I think the piece in question is the laser subassembly.

    Re: Who still makes SACD players?

    My main issue with SACD player is that the DAC has to be part of the player due to Sony licensing issues which means you are married to the in-built DAC. PS audio did something especial with their DMP transport which would transmit DSD signal encrypted over I2S (therefore abiding Sony's licensing crap) but that also means you can only play using with their DS DAC.

    A good DSD streamer can give you the freedom to change the DAC at will but a good SACD player can provide simplicity of operation.

    Re: Who still makes SACD players?

    A few companies have done similar things... McIntosh, Esoteric, etc.

    To me the best and easiest solution is to rip my SACDs and play them from my music server. This allows the files to be played using T+A's amazing DSD 1-bit processor instead of Oppo's ESS 9018. Also, and definitely as important the files can then be up-sampled by HQPlayer. In my experience files originally in DSD up-samples are superior to PCM files up-sampled!
