Never.


The amp of such device would never be good enough to make an audible improvement over cd.

Perhaps a small sacd decoder with a digital out??

I'm going to be optimistic and say never too.
I don't see much point of a truly portable SACD player - it would defeat the purpose of it.

Step 1: Plug power cable into wall. Step 2: Plug other end of power cable into....umm.... Step 0.5: Order something to power with power cable.

It would only make sense to do this if sacd actually catches on...

Biggie.

How old is SACD, anyway?
It's been around for quite a while, hasn't it?

SACD is for audiophiles; most traditional audiophiles have speakers-- and PCDP's don't factor into that equation anyway. A PSACDP would have little or no demand. Most normal non-audiophiles couldn't care less about a good-sounding PCDP, let alone on that is both good sounding and has SACD capability.

Well, they already have portable DVD which includes DVD-A, so I predict some time within the next year (I.E. by September 2003) -- and that's being pessimistic.

i predict that once somebody comes out with a firmware of some kind that cracks the sacd so that it is readable/ripable in dvd-rom drives.. then it'll get super popular and sony will bitch about how much money they are losing.
