How can I listen to DSS audio files on my Mac?

I have an Olympus DM-10 voice recorder that I use to record interviews. It's a nice little machine. The problem is, I lost the CD that came with it, which had a program to play the files that the recorder makes, which are DSS files.

There's a free "lite" version of the software on Olympus's website, but it comes in .sit format. I tried to download Stuffit Expander, but that initiated a process which seemed to have to end in my signing up for some annoying 'free offers' before getting the software.

Is there an easier way, either a free alternative way to play DSS, or another way to open a .sit file?

Best answer: The Unarchiver will uncompress Stuffit (.sit) files.

Best answer: Featureless as it is, the Olympus DSS Player Lite is really the best way to play DSS files on your Mac without having a license for the full DSS Player software.
