    Default Now I understand what all the hoopla is about.

    SACD is awesome

    sadly my Panny 210 bluray died the other day so I had to purchase a new player. I decided I wanted to step up and get something better. Oppo would be great but I dont want to spend $300+ and the fact that I work for Best Buy and I can get stuff stupid cheap, I decided to give the Elite players a shot.

    I ended up getting a bdp-52fd open item for just under $100 with 4 yr warranty. Its a multi player so it does sacd dvd-a as well as the standard media.

    My wife had a hybrid copy of Norah Jones Come Away with me and I popped it in. I am so impressed. I havent even played it on my lsi system yet, just my rti's. I am kicking myself for not getting one earlier.

    So now I am on to buying some sacds

    SACD's will outlive CD's IMO. The CD's were mass-marketed and will die with the digital world. SACD's target the enthusiast and have a more die-hard following than CD's ever will. SACD/DSD is part of the reason I'm skiddish about picking up a DAC: I want to see what opportunities open up in the next year or so before I jump on one.

    Its the sacd for sure. The Bluray outputs bitstream so in theory the AVR is still doing the decoding so the player shouldnt have much of an effect on the sound

    No Doubt. One of my biggest issues with new music. Sometimes they don't sound good no matter how good the music is. I'm out of the loop on the new stuff. Need to do some research.

    Yeah, wait until you get a really good SACD discs in there. That Norah Jones recording is ok, but it's not a reference recording IMO.

    Is there a way to get DSD info through the analog outputs? Does it make sense to have sacd without DSD?

    Damn.. sounds like I need to start getting aggressive on moving some stuff out of the closet on the net so I can grab a SACD player. I'd prob go with a OPPO 103 if had the chance.

    The real question is.. whats some of the best SACDs out there?

    Yes, DSD can come through on analog outputs.

    SACD's high resolution layer is already encoded in DSD. Therefore, the player can do the decoding to analog or output the DSD bitstream, by HDMI, to a HT receiver that can do the decoding.

    DSD will only be output by HDMI (version 1.2 or above....I believe the latest HDMI version is 1.4)
