New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

the other side of the coin...

I recently replaced my "Hot Rocks" CD. I have all but a handful of the tracks on the original albums (including "High Tide and Green Grass") on SACD. This DSD remastered CD sounds much better than the original ABKCO CD (not saying much) and nearly as good as the SACDs.

Most stereo SACDs sound better than redbook because they are mixed/mastered with more care. When the SACD is simply a transfer from the CD it may well be indistinguishable on many systems and to many ears, especially at normal listening levels.
