Thanks for posting this. Yes, ISO2DSD is a bit long in the tooth. I looked at SACDExtractGUI about a year ago, and at the time, did not see any compelling functional reason to switch from ISO2DSD (“if it ain’t broke . . …”). The possible incremental speed improvement was not enticing enough (because the bulk of my ripping was already done); if I had to start from scratch with a couple hundred SACDs, I would probably feel different. Still, I might look again. I will also add this, though: the tick/pop problem discussed here and quite a few other places is not something I have run into with my rips.
To anyone thinking of trying this out, I would recommend picking up one of the cheap Sony players that are known to be compatible with SACDExtractGUI. They are widely available on flEabay for under $50USD.
UPDATE: Just to check, I was able to download and install SACDExtractGUI to my laptop and my desktop. Further, I was able to install the Autoscript folder on a FAT-formatted flash drive. Both my Oppo 105 and my MSB UMT respond correctly to the insertion of the thumb drive. Each is Accessible and Ping-able in the SACDExtractGUI interface. Unfortunately, when I run the app, it simply returns a message of [DONE] with no files output from any setting. I am reviewing the posts in the HiFi Haven thread [almost 90 pages there] to see if anyone reports something similar. When I run ISO2DSD from either the laptop or the desktop, well, everything just works. ISO rips and DSF rips work just fine. Sightly slower, and slightly less convenient from a file management perspective, but reliable. YMMV.
