    i prefer sacd and multi-channel to 2ch. as well but F1's got a great point.

    If the software support isn't there, what does it matter?

    Well, I think you missed my point. I love SACD, I love 2 channel and I find multi-channel to sound fake. Therefore my point is that those who haven't experienced music on a nice 2 channel rig don't know that multi-channel falls short of the real deal.

    Live music doesn't come from the sides or back, just the front and with a nice 2 channel set up you get the natural reflections as you would at a live event, not someones idea of what those reflections might be. Worse yet are the multi-channel recordings that put you in the middle of the stage....ugh! Sure multi-channel music has a certain wow factor, but it's an effect.

    I have the SACD in question, sounds anything but bogus on my rig.

    I do agree about the lack of software unless one is into classical in a big way, but I understand why it is that way. Those are the people buying SACD's.

    My system i have here is not a super system but its better than average and what i was saying about the 2 channel beck is i have alot of cd's and you can tell a good production as well as a bad one and compared to other cd's i have it sounded bad. How much money does it take to make a 15 buck cd sound good?

    Mini,

    You have some great speaks, the Samsung is great to get you started. I had a Panasonic way back in the day to get me started on High Rez. I know several here, myself included who started with the hook of multi-channel and then came back to 2 ch.

    How much does it take?

    Quick go run now!!!! ;) No diss meant to Redbook or its fans, but SACD on quality gear simply rocks, it just cant itself, its better.
