    Bi-amping LSI speakers

    SACD audio is a great format. It has the ability to sound as good as the analog masters they are made from. Granted, some of the surround mixes are a bit gimmicky, but overall, it is outstanding....

    You mean score one for nonsense. Music is analog, and SACD/DVD-A, with its higher bit resolution will always be better (more accurate) than straight CD, to the original analog waveform, no matter...

    It depends. In some cases, you would be right. In the case of the DA9000ES, not the case. The DA9000ES is a digital amp, and the i-link has an anti-jitter circuit (HATS) which cleans up the digital...

    16 bit resolution can only take sound so far. SACD definitely sounds better, as do music DVDs.
