If you ask one of the Gorts directly, they will unlock that thread for you.
It’s probably been mentioned already, but the Oppo 103/105 series had this capability but it was removed early on by firmware upgrade.
Lots of modern players have USB inputs capable of taking a USB hard drive / memory stick, and many can play DSF files (DSD files). If you have plenty of SACD ISOs they can be converted to playable files easily enough.
Yeah and I have already extracted the dsf files from the ISOs, and filed them onto my music server drives for JRiver playback.
But I like to spin discs once in a while. I'm still playing DVD-A and SACDs directly from original discs. And I have sold off or traded quite a few of my discs off. But I kept the ISOs all filed away in strict order, as if they are worth their HDD weight in platinum.
I just bought another SACD player, this time a 5-Disc changer. Sony model for $29.99, and had to buy remote on eBay separately.
I like players and gadgets to mess around with when the prices are hitting rock bottom.
I have an Oppo 105D, 2 Denon, and a Sony, may as well get a Pioneer to round out the collection and fill up the rack in bedroom with more toys.
I have my original Oppo BDP-83 still (first Blu-Ray player I bought) and it will play SACD-Rs/.isos as well.
One might with a CFW MOD. I think I might have picked one up last week.
I have been getting them on Kajiji. Try there. They go for 20-50
There is one that's not on the list that is. Think there is a few. I'll locate and send you the info
Sorry, I don't know how to do that. How can I start that process. I'm eager to know.
Can you explain something. Many of the units on the list, or at least a good handful are not SACD players but BluRay and DVD players. No SACD playback that I could see in their specs. So if no SACD, then how could they play SACD-R?
I'm going down the list looking for one with RCA 5.1 outs. That is another deal breaker for me until I buy a new AVR.
The Denons, OPPO and pioneers do everything including DVD A, them and the Sonys have the Sacd Logo.
The Sony's are Blu ray and 3D blu rays and SACD players. I have several from the List. There are some off the list that only play and Rip SACD but recently a few from the list and one not on the list that have been updated with curent Firmware can now be downgraded and can play SACD-R. I got that one last week. I'll confirm that later. Sorry been meaning to.
They specs do list SACD playback but sometimes only in the spec sheet that's a pdf on the main sony site along side the manuals.
The OPPOS have that. Mine does. That's your best bet. A used one from kijiji. Been getting all my Sony from there and one Oppo. I was going to get another but want an OPPO, Denon or Pioneer with Blu ray and DVD Audio playback as well.
I saw no Sony models with RCA 5.1, so Denon looks most likely - but Denons are expensive compared to many.
I think I need to wait a couple months or more for prices to come way down. I'm ok with no BR playback but I would like both SACD and DVD-A with my RCA jacks.
You got to go OPPO DVD or maybe Denon Pioneer DVD. Maybe a DUNE.
Haven't seen too many with rca plugs. You can get a used HDMI AVR for 50-6o off Kijiji. And turn off DSD on your player.

The bdp-s390 490 and 590 are not on the list. They plays SACD and it can be downgraded to play SCADR. That's the one I was reffering to.
The 380 480 and the 580 are on the list and can be downgraded if needed as well.
