Hi nads, after i posted i did think i left a major part out, i like all music really,have not listend to a lot of classical . iam sat here listening to kings of leon. do you get your discs on line or in the stores as there does not seem to be agreat selection to chose from in stores.

TBH i did not know i had any until i put one in the multidisc player and it said it was an SACD.

the link i put up has most (if not all) SACD's made (many are CD and SACD) have fun.

Dire Straits Brothers in Arms 20th Anniversary edition is SACD, also HDCD and is a brilliant example of the technology with both encodings.

Released in 2005 search on Amazon for Brothers In Arms - 20th Anniversary Edition [SACD], it is only around £6 ... bargain.ÿ

No need to buy 2 discs as if it is a SACD it will most likely have CD encoding on it as well.

Like topbloke said the brothers in arms he mentions has 3 different encodings on it but if you only have a CD player you will never know about the others.

Have a look at your current CDs and see if there is a SACD logo hidden some where on them.

like i said i did not know i had any SACD's until i put one in the multi disc player rather than the Cd player.

Is there a difference between the formats in the sound yes. but again SACD can be 5.1 as well as just stereo.
