SACD ISO and Roon

Hi everyone, is SACD ISO supported by Roon? If not, is there any plan to do so? Thanks.

Not ISOs. You’d need to convert to DSF.

There has been much talk, (pressure) for this as one of the main competitors supports this . Equally CUE and FLAC ie single big file plus CUE sheet is not supported but is a very common rip format.

Currently in both cases some pre conversion is needed

Thanks guys, reason this subject piqued my interest again was that Cary DMS-500 just released a FW update allowing SACD ISO playing, so I thought Roon might have something coming too, I guess it’s not the case.

It’s trivial to convert them,


Thanks @Larry_Post, I have done a few myself, the Sonore file is a different and I must say cleaner gui front end linking back to the same sacd_extract.exe

Ripping ISOs is the way to go for the long run, but having the ability to read off ISO is a very convenient feature to have.
