In Reply to: What, you have 900 SACDs? posted by Ozzie on February 29, 2012 at 19:06:21:
I do know how good SACD players can sound, that was not my point.
My disappointment with SACD was not with the sound, as it can sound as good as any other format with proper mastering, but with availability of the music I enjoy.
If I had the disposable income to get the upgrades, believe me, I would.
For what releases (almost always only re-issued music) are coming out, and what I have on vinyl already (I have a collection of over 25,000 Lps) there just aren't many SACDs that warrant the purchase.
I did buy the "Wish You Were Here" re-issue, and if more of the same comes out I will purchase them gladly!
It's all about the music!
