I don't think there are "tons" of SACD's anywhere :D

Which is too bad, it was a promising format...

Yeah, very hard to find SACD of anything relatively contemporary.

Maybe we'll just skip over SACD and go right to DVDA.

Get a player that will do both SACD and DVD-A...

Then you don't have to worry about what format they are...

I received the Brothers in Arms CD by Dire Straits today. It is in SACD format. I used my Oppo Dvd player for playback. Frankly I was a bit confused by all that rear "thing" and dont know if I like my music in 5.1. I need to listen to it some more.

To each his own I guess...

Basically, the best thing with the 5.1 for music is that it separates the instruments even more and give you a feeling of sitting in the middle of the band playing.

I don't like that... :laugh:

I like my music to be 2 channel. Some SACDs have a 2 channel option BTW.

Actually, multi-channel music can sound very good. Not all multichannel discs are created equally however. It all depends on the engineers that mix it. I like the Eagles Hotel California in multi-channel as well as stereo. Fleetwood Mac Rumors is another example of multi done right. I have Toto IV on SACD and don't care for the multi channel mix. The stereo is great though. Just because you hear a ****** multi mix doesn't mean you should forget the whole format. Most 2 channel discs sound incredible. Of course this is also dependent on the rest of your system.

And the multi isn't tooo bad. Try it out before you say you don't like it... :fyi:
