New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: I'm not Hiredfox, but I'll butt in

I wrote earlier about three recordings which to me, in my system, sound better on vinyl than on CD. But there are also several recordings that sound better on CD than on vinyl, I think because of the mastering.

My goal is to get the best out of both possibilities. PS Audio claims that their new player
(same basic process as the Marantz sa10) makes CD's, not just SACD's, sound better.
I'd like to know.

Someone asked about the SA14 on PCM downloadable files. I don't have too much experience there, and in particular no basis of comparison. I have some FLAC files (Patricia Barber's Monday Night at the Green Mill) that do sound very good when streamed through the USB port of the Marantz.

I am more or less satisfied with the rest of my system (speakers, amplifiers, etc.)
