  • Summary: supeeraudiocd ( sa-cd ) is agreat format and CAN sound really "high end analog" if you choose the correct player. firstly i buyed a entry level marantz sa-cd player which disappointment me so much that i sold it. although sony scd-xa5400es has WAY better level of detail than marantz entry level SA-CD player in SACDs and CDs alike, when I listened afterwards an arcam dv135 (comparable price ) (yes, dvd-audio/ superaudiocd player) in my system I hear much more than before...

  • Summary: I was looking for an alternative for my aging Sony CDP XA50ES and although I had another CDP-XB930QS as backup, I defenately wanted a new player. SACD is not that important to me as there are few SACD recordings - I own at maximum 20 SACD's - so the main reason for bying this player was CD playback. I hooked up the player to a McIntosh C46 preamp, using the McIntosh MC252 power amplifier and the JBL Ti10k speakers. I used both balanced and unbalanced outputs.
