Req SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC
Nice to see that there is development on the SACD.ISO playback part
I think it would be really great if KODI could playback SACD.ISO's because then also Audiophiles
will see KODI as an excellent tool to listen to high resolution audio.

But I think two things are important and has to be clear:
(this way I hope to get the complex matter more clear for the developers that are working on this case)

First of all: to playback SACD.ISO's you need an external USB DAC that is compatible with DSD.
(otherwise you will need DoP if you are using a PCM only DAC)
So KODI have to doesn't have to do the decoding of the SACD.ISO material it self, it only has to read it, understand it, and
transport the data (untouched) to the DAC.
The DAC will handle the decoding.

Second: most modern DAC's are compatible with "USB Audio Class V2.0"
All DAC's that are compatible with this protocol will be seen as "external audio devices" by the operating system
and this is very good because the audio data will be transported directly from the PC to the DAC
So the operating system is not interfering with this process at all, all audio data will be untouched transported
to the DAC.
KODI doesn't have to do the actual decoding of the SACD.ISO or DSD data stream itself, the DAC will do this

I hope the above info can help the KODI developers, don't try to create an SACD.ISO software decoder or something
only control the SACD.ISO files, and let other protocol's and DAC do their work
they are made for this.

I hope to install KODI one day on my Audio streamer, this would be awesome!
