• Mr Wicked has released his SACD ripping software for the PS3.

    First of all my apologies for my post from half a year ago. At that time of writing I thought I had it all figured out, but I was far far away from reality. Now, a half year later I can tell you that PS3 SACD ripping is finally possible and works with a natively build PS3 application (NO linux required).

    It really has been a rollercoaster ride and without the release of PS3 keys this would not have been possible. It all came together at the right time, but it required alot of reverse engineering, learning the internals of the PS3 and last but not least writing code to see code!!: (http://code.google.com/p/ida-spu) Yes, too much time of my life has gone into this, but I don’t regret any of it..
    Although still in alpha successful dumps are being made as we speak. But due to legal reasons I will not spread binaries and I’ll leave that up to others. The user interface is simple but it will allow you to dump DSDIFF, DSF, ISO in both multi and stereo channels and it also creates the necessary ID3 tags so your track/disc information is not lost. Remember the software is still in ALPHA, but it’s way more than just a proof of concept… let the testing begin!

    EDIT:
    For those unable to use Google, here is what SACD is.

    Super Audio CD (SACD) is a high-resolution, read-only optical disc for audio storage. Sony and Philips Electronics jointly developed the technology, and publicized it in 1999.[citation needed] It is designated as the Scarlet Book standard. Sony and Philips previously collaborated to define the Compact Disc standard (as well as the S/PDIF digital audio cable specification). The SACD medium supersedes the storage capacity, fidelity, dynamic range, and stereo imaging capabilities of the Compact Disc.

    To read more, check the source of that information here.

    EDIT 2
    For backwards compatible PS3′s only, check this site for more information on SACD.

      It sorta gives it away in the image, SACD = Super Audio CD, anyone who owns a PS3 should already know what this is, anyhow i edited the front page for those of you that dont know.

      Anyone that purchased their ps3 (except the cheaper models) have a backwards compatible ps3. I've got an 80gb with a 600gb drive installed running on 3.55cfw. The bluray drive still works like a charm and plays ps1 and ps2 games all the time with ease.

      I remember you. Weren't you involved with a bunch of fakers in the PSP scene? PSPDizaster? Yeah... that was you. more than a little suspicious of you claiming to have the 3.60 keys.

      Thanks for being community-oriented and not selfish about the 3.60 keys. Now let's test this code and see if we are closer to making $ony cry and give back what they try to take away from us. (Our own PS3 systems they claim we "rent" from them. I can't rent my CECHA01 PS3 since I bought mine from a pawn shop. Keyword: BOUGHT, f-u $ony )

      Ok guys, let's go down to some real discussion and questions about this great piece of software - something (believe me) thousands of hifi-aficionados have been waiting for: rip your SACDs and port their amazing soundquality over to streaming clients, highresolution playback chains etc. ....

      Gave it a try and it worked!

      Here are questions and a wishlist:
      - an option to encode to flac (or selectable lossless codecs like apple lossless) directly would be very handy, including choosing options for sampling frequency (88/96/176/192 kHz @24bit). Including filling the appropriate tag-fields...
      - writing to a network share would be great, but only, when this is easily configurable (somehow graphically browse the network and choose an output directory). Or creating some sort of folder on the PS3's HD, that can be accessed via the network and mounted as a network folder on a windows computer.
      - a GUI, where I can select, what tracks to rip and in which format (maybe even consecutively, both in stereo and multichannel) or an option like "rip all tracks in both stereo and multichannel".

      - Questions: how "stable" and "good" is this alpha in terms of sound-quality? I am not sure how to put it right, but are there any codecs involved, or (like with CD-ripping) any error-corrections, that could alter the quality of the file or the in any way? (hint: look how elaborately dbpoweramp or EAC try to rip a CD bitperfectly).
      - what's the difference between the downloads/programs "Sacd-Ripper" and "Sacd-Ripper (geohot CFW)"?

      Great piece of software, that you got going there, keep up the work!

      Since I didn't write the software I can only answer "what's the difference between the downloads/programs "Sacd-Ripper" and "Sacd-Ripper (geohot CFW)"? The answer is, when compiling under PSL1GHT it will produce those two versions. But in this case, it doesn't matter which one you use, as either will work on any firmware that works with SACD Ripper.

      To simplify things, there's now only one download link on the binaries site at https://wdnqg3ehh3hvalpe.tor2web.org/.
