New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.


I went without HDCD decoding for several years with my Esoteric DV-50. The Oppo BDP-95 was a big step up playing HDCD CDs. Otherwise - of course - not so much. Actually I considered a C-5xeMP, but it would likely cost about the same as a Berkeley DAC 2. I'm pretty sure a Bryston bda-3 (at $3200 Canadian) using my BDP-95 as transport would perform as well as the C-5xeMP on stereo material. Maybe not on the HDCD where I'd be using the Oppo on 5.1, but the HDCD sound is very good.
