Ever since acquiring a decent universal player last year (Oppo UDP 205), which has the ability to send the DSD signal straight to analogue, I’ve really been getting into SACD as a format.
I only have a small collection - Floyd, Can, Goldfrapp, Roger Waters, some jazz and classical - but am always looking for new ones. If anyone can recommend any outstanding ones, especially classical and jazz, I’d be most interested.
I don’t know what it is, but they definitely sound better than redbook CDs and also many hi-res files I have… they have an almost “analogue” quality about, them, as they seem to lack the usual digital “glassiness” or “harshness” - but maybe I’ve been lucky and have just bought good ones.
What do other forumites think of this format (or of DSD more generally)?
