I am not very familiar with the electronics involved in playback of digital cd's, but I have a question I thought maybe some one here could answer. I have 2 cd players that both can play sacd or cd. I had thought that if a player would play one format real well it would also play the other. Most of the components are the same aren't they? However, one of my players is real good at sacd playback and only average on cd playback and the other is exactly the opposite. Just curious what would cause that and is it common?
Having said that I wonder if anyone knows of a player for less than $1000 that is equally good at playing both? I would really like to just have one unit if possible, but I can understand if you need to specialize and have one for sacd and another for cd.
