how do I know if my lossless files are PCM or DSD?

as above. The files are all in FLAC extension. (Most of them are CD rips)



@riley804 is right. If your source material is CD, then you have PCM audio.


Ripping SACD from a disc requires special software and specific models of universal disc players.

yeah me.

all i did was google the OP's question using google, which i then found a site that explained this.

All FLAC and ALAC (Apple's version) is PCM and lossless.

MQA is PCM but lossy.
