I have a NAD T585 universal I'm using. It keeps the DSD native without changing it to PCM. I like it, but am really drooling over the OPPO 95. The NAD sounds pretty good on redbook too. It can be had relatively cheaply on the used market these days. SACD sounds good on this player, but I really want to see what SACD is capable of with the OPPO. I use my system to play back DVD's also so that's why I'm interested in that. I have a modest collection os SACD's so far. My most prized score is the Genesis Lamb Lies Down On Broadway SACD from Japan I found on Amazon. They had a 3rd party seller selling a "Like New" used one for $3.49. I figured this must be an error and probably is just a redbook cd. I took a chance anyway for that price. Imagine my surprise when I opened the package and saw a "Like New" SACD with all of the original material in the resealable plastic envelope that they use. Considering that this title is out of print (along with so many others that I would like) and the prices are sky rocketing on these titles, in many cases over $100, I was like a pig in $#!*. Too bad more material isn't available in this format at reasonable prices. It's worth it, sometimes, to buy up newer releases and just hang on to them and watch their value increase over time. Supply and demand kicks in here.

I bought a Sony DVD player because it was SACD capable and so far I only own one SACD (Dark side of the moon )

My very first stereo was a Quad ( 8 track ) and I have always loved multi channel sound so I have a huge collection of multi channel music on my PC of either DTS  or DVD-A  .

 

I have quit dragging home vintage gear for now because it kind of took over the house but if I ever find another  Sansui QRX-9001 I may take it home and  setup a Quad system ,I already have a Quad /headphone that I could use .

How have I managed to miss this thread for two months? I started buying SACDs about a year and a-half ago and was playing them on a Yahama DVD/SACD player until I upgraded to a Cambridge. Six months ago I sold the Cambridge, my Pacific Valve CD transport and DacMagic and replaced them all with a Yahama CD S-2000 CD/SACD player. I haven't looked back. I chose the Yahama because it has balanced output with I need for input to my WA22. I now have 26 SACDs in my collection and am always on the lookout for new ones. Nickel Creek and the Rebecca Pidgeon Retrospective are two on my favorites.

Oh let me just go pick one of those up.  Really though, that looks beautiful. I wish I could find a player with XLR outs at a more reasonable price. The limitation in digital out is a terrible oversight on marketing of SACDs.

I found the S-2000 on Audiogon listed by a retailer in Minnesota as a demo unit  for less than half the MSRP. I just got lucky.
