New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: Disagree.

That is not always true. SACDs (and downloads obtained from those labels giving us, NativeDSD, and others the ripped files) go through an authoring stage that is not required if the labels would offer the step before that, the edit master. This is somewhat theoretical, or worst case, nitpicking to the finest detail, but non-authored edit masters are one gen closer to the recording than the authoring stage that SACDs have to go through. This why those DSD64 (say nothing of higher bitrates) files from labels like our Channel Classics or other boutique labels that either present us with edit masters instead of their ripped SACDs, or labels who now get us files that have NEVER been authored for SACD, are the theoretically better bets.
