New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: strange SACD problem

It is certainly feasible that you may have interference between the OTL amp and the SA-10 player.

Most SACD players provide a choice of filters one of which curtails the HF response to prevent such interference. However the SA-10 does not really use a digital filter at all by virtue of upsampling everything to a very high frequency. So he possibility exists but should, I would think, be apparent with more than a single disc.

Have you simply tried cleaning the Patricia Barber SACD? The fault described also sounds like the result of a dirty disc and that fault could explain why it played OK on one occasion but not on another.
