Disc Player That Outputs 44.1 kHz as 44.1 kHz

I write my own, operating under ASIO. https://sdk.steinberg.net/viewtopic.php?t=9

 

Thanks... on my Windows PCs I use asio drivers... but my audio work is in linux. I was just curious as I was going to use on of my multi in/out interfaces to set up a 2 03 three way crossover. Since I have the hardware, I would be spending money, per se, but it would probably be better to get me an active crossover. Certainly easier to configure.

I gave up on Linux audio after several attempts. ALSA is just a nightmare of design-by-committee, with dependencies upon dependencies upon dependencies ...

ASIO requires a bit of customization for each device, but once that's done it just works.

Just to close the book on this -- I'm afraid that I didn't take anyone's advice (including my own) and instead bought a Yamaha BD-S681 BluRay player that I found on sale. I have it playing in my system right now and have verified that it does output S/PDIF at 44.1 kHz. Thanks to all who responded.

Simple: I have the discs. And I don't have the motivation or the time to rip them to a server.

I would suggest you re-evaluate your goals to include ripping and server. I build a intel NUC and run Roon.  It’s amazing.  You’ll have all the control you want and will actually play more of your music. Ripping and using any high end software player will have you exceed the results of  ace player in your budget hands down.  

Even buying an average laptop... then rip in AIFF and play via audio nirvana will show you incredible performance. 

 

That said.  Emotive makes a fantasied CD player.  One of the best I’ve seen under 2k.

A Pentium 100 MHz computer would sit idle 90% of the time serving files.  I'd recommend encoding in FLAC instead.  (You'll want a computer a bit more current for that particular task.)

Yes. It took a while, but we came full-circle.

I assure you all that I am quite capable of doing exactly that. I simply chose not to.

 

What I am much more likely to do is record my vinyl as I play it, and store those recordings on a server. All in good time.

 

Once again, thank you to all who responded.
