I don't have one so I haven't tried it, but given everything else it does I wouldn't be surprised.

And now iTunes 7.0.2 is as ****** up as the previous 7.0.1, unable to play any HDCD or even DTS stream ! It modifies the digital streams sent to the Airport Express.

I have winamp 5.24 playing flac files with directsound and hdcd works fine. This is with a USB to spdif adapter and no special software installed.

Do you have an HDCD capable dac connected at the other end of your usb to spdif adaptor? The direct sound driver does not seem compatible with HDCD subcoding in 20 bit format in my system, but the disk obviously plays fine as regular non HDCD pcm - if you don't have an HDCD dac you'd never know.

I use an HDCD dac in my system and the only way I have found to get actual 20 bit HDCD playback (not standard redbook 16 bit pcm) with WinAmp, QCD or J RIver Media Center is using ASIO..

Yup. Cary 303/200. On HD tracks, the HDCD LED turns on. The DAC will also show the sampling rate, etc, and when the card is first plugged in, it says 48:48, but as soon as winamp starts playing, it switches to 44:44. So, without trying, I have gotten something right

Cool, wish I had been so lucky - for me it was a lot of work to get it to all work properly.. It all works now though (mostly anyway..)
I have a PS Audio Ultralink II which supports HDCD and sounds good on any material that ought to. It's not very forgiving on bad material though..

Hi Guys,

Is there any program out there that I could use to find out if a particular Wav stream has HDCD flags in it or not ?

My windows media never displayed the HDCD logo even though it should (I have the 24bit box enabled).

Thank You
