    (I'm sure this has been done a thousand times but I figured an updated list would never go astray as I'm still discovering new SACD's that I had missed out on buying) So what are your favourite SACD's sound quality wise, and by that I mean what discs do you have (or have had) that just seem to...

    I am thinking about getting into SA-CD, with select favorite titles, such as Pink Floyd, Dire Straits and a few others. List will undoubtedly expand if I see a noticeable sonic improvement over cds. Now to my question, will an economical player like a Sony BDPS 6200 ($ 130 CDN) do the trick?:help:

    I have several 5.1 channel DTS CDs and was struggling to get them to play after ripping, until I found out the secret... Here is what you do. 1: Rip the SACD to a wav file (make sure you select 5.1 for 5.1 discs) I used dbpoweramp. 2: This is the secret part... Just change the extension to...

    Guys! I want to introduce you to my recent development - software crossover for offline processing of the SACD DSD streams. Its core based on a FIR filter and provides direct filtering for delta-sigma streams, without any intermediate conversion into the PCM. Stereo DSD stream (inside a...

    I am wanting to explore the world of high resolution audio but on a budget. I am looking for good player values like older Pioneer Elite DVD players (DV-59AV) and Sony ES models (SCD-XA777ES). Any specific models I should check out? Heavier models with copper plated chassis don't hurt from a...
  8. System Setup and Connection
    I would like to use the Marantz SA-8004 through my Ref 50 and utilize the highest SQ possible. I would think that going analog through the Ref 50 utilizing the Cirrus DAC in the 8004 would be the best choice. Granted the 8004 is 2-CH only so I have 3 choices: 1. Digital to the Ref 50 but I...

    Steven Wilson, one of the leaders in surround mixing in the world of Progressive Rock (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson, Opeth, solo works), has released his latest surround productions on BluRay instead of DVD-Audio. Is the end of life for the DVD-Audio format in sight? Any thoughts?

    My SCD-CE595 won't read SACD's or hybrids. It will read red book CD's. I've cleaned the lens. I see the lens light up red. I presume the laser is ruby type. Can this issue be fixed?

    I just ordered The Stranger and 52 Street on MFSL SA-CD; they are NOT 5.1 discs. I already own them on redbook CD and vinyl, but I can't wait to hear them! I'll try post impressions of their sq after I've listened to them for a while.

    I'm thinking of getting a PS3 to use as a SACD player (I've located one of the old ones that will play SACD) and wondered if anyone had any thoughts as to how it performs. I listed the question here (as well as another forum) as I am very interested in its sq as a 2 channel SACD player. Thanks!

    I'm thinking of getting a PS3 to use as a SACD player (I've located one of the old ones that will play SACD) and wondered if anyone had any thoughts as to how it performs. I'm drawn to the PS3 as it will play Blu Ray, SACD and stream music/Netflix in 5.1. I don't know of another player that will...
  16. Two Channel Audio
    Hi. I'm curious about the preferred listening habits of readers of this forum. If given a choice of 2 channel or 5.1 on a SACD, which do you usually choose? What are the main factors that affect your choice? If it's an older recording like Dark Side of the Moon that was recorded in stereo, which...

    So was listening to my Living Stereo SACD of Rachmaninoff Concerto #3 tonight and comparing my new(er) Sony BDP-S370 to my Yamaha DVD-C961 and was surprised to see the Yamaha sampling @ 88.2 kHz Sony playing back @ 176 kHz. Any idea why my Yamaha wouldn't sample at the same rate as the Sony...

My new Sony MEX-DV2200 head unit installation was completed yesterday. Listening to Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the...
