Norah Jones SACD Scandal --- Slightly off-topic

I remember when the Norah Jones SACD first came out many audiophiles claimed that it was so much better than the CD. Those same audiophiles back peddled when they learned it was a DSD conversion from 16/44.1 PCM [CD]. All of a sudden these same audiophiles could magically hear no difference between the CD and SACD ;-)

I always thought SACD and DSD were artificially smooth taking all edge off the music even if the artist intended for it to be there. Like a shard of glass smoothed over by ocean currents, it's still glass but no longer the same. Just my take.
