New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

Download quality

I'm still not too impressed by the sound quality of my classical downloads. I've got plenty now, nearly all 24/96, and few seem up to the standard of a good SACD, even in stereo only. There is something slightly glassy and strained about the sound. Hard to define. Everything is decoded by the Oppo 205 and output from HDMI to the Marantz 8805 so apart from downloads coming off an attached HDD and SACDs coming from the inbuilt diskdrive there is little to choose. SACDs are largely surround of course - I suppose that might be significant.
