I've read reports of people not liking the vocals on the SACD but to me they sounds fine - but then again I'm not using high end Hi-Fi, just a Sony S4100 blu-ray player feading a Panasonic Blu-ray home cinema system - I just like multi-channel music.

Is it worth the massive price increase over the normal CD? OK, so SACD is a better digital system over Red Book CD, resulting in a sound closer to analogue vinyl, and 5.1 sound is a bonus, but nearly two and a half times… Read more
