SACD Convertion

Post by jorgensen » Sun Jun 26, 2022 2:24 pm

I have some SACD ISO, where peaks is 0dB, or higher, when converted to a flac file by EZ.
Have tried to lower the output level by 6dB, but only found the normalize stuff which is not very useable in this situation.
Am I right, that there is no way to lower the output from the DSD to flac converter?

Scarlett Book (SACD) specifications require that the input signal be limited to -6.0 dBFS

EZ CD Audio Converter compensates the -6dB adjustment when converting DSD to PCM

The EZ gain compensation can lead to clipping for SACDs which do not obey the 6dB role.
I have attached pictures of “Beat it” from a Michael Jackson Thriller SACD album, which have been ripped by EZ and Foobar2000 with 0dB gain setting.
It is easy to see that EZ is clipping the result heavily - eg 1:28 and 2:14
