Jack I found the Sony CDP-CE500 on Amazon.ca and Amazon .com but I did not see where this unit plays SA-CD.
You sir are correct and I was wrong, it happens about 3000 times a day. I apologize for steering you in the wrong direction.

Good Listening

Jack

Cool thanks eljay.
Happy to help.

And welcome to the world of SACD audio! I'm sure you'll enjoy the Floyd and Dire Straits discs - they both sound incredibly good.

(Not sure if you're already aware, but sa-cd.net is a good resource.)

How does it sound?

Did you follow the directions i posted for setting it up?
SACD can sound wonderful, if the recording was done correctly and DSOM was.
The sound improves in many ways not the least of which is soundspace as well as the little details. Voices, backgrounds, clarity and improved definition. It is now so easy to hear the intonation of an instrument as well as the emotion as played by the artist. A good example is Tin Pan Alley by Stevie Ray. He plays hard, soft and everything in between and it shows up in spades with a SACD. Even DSOM disc can really raise the goosebumps on your arms. Something as simple as the Elton John's Your Song SACD brings a whole new life to his music. I was not happy with his CD's but the SACD is quite addictive.

The best to come may be BR music discs, wow. I have only a couple so far and I find the Beethoven 7th by to be so very good, dynamic shadings and incredibly realistic dynamics.

But for the best of the best, go yo AIX records and pick one of the sample discs and be prepared to be amazed and slack jawed for days. AIX provides several ways to listen: 2 channel 24/96, 5.1 channel audience view and right smack dab in the middle of the guys/gals playing the music. So clean and clear, it truly is stunning in its presentation. A MUST buy.

Good Listening

Jack
