I'm looking to buy some SACDs. What I want to know is that I'll be getting a higher fidelity sound than Redbook by buying software in SACD. So, obviously, for titles that record explicitly in DSD, they will be better than Redbook. What about "remastered" or titles that you know are more than a few years old? What exactly is involved in the "remastering" process anyway and how does that change the quality? Or, does it merely transfer the same recording, albeit at a lower fidelity, to a hi-fi format such as SACD? How will the sound on SACD compare to Redbook? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
