Portable Super Audio CD Player with USB 3.0 support?

Hi All,

I am looking for a Super Audio CD Player to play my SACD and HDCD (some hybrid) with my tablet & modern laptop.
Because the newer model hardware nowadays doesn't include the optical drive, I wonder if anyone can suggest me some USB 3.0 drive that I can attach to the docking station for listening to music (Hi-Fi quality).

I cannot see here if Super Audio CD is supported: https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Computer/Computer+Drives

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Any dual layer usb external drive should work.
You don't need to limit your selection to USB 3.0 drives.  USB 2.0 should be fine for any sort of audio or video  except 4k video.  Since most portable optical drives come with a USB type A connector (2.0 or 3.0),  if your docking station doesn't have  a USB  3.0 type A port (works for 2.0 as well), check these adapters...
