New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

Was it the software, or...

...was it your player?

I've heard this sort of description of the difference between the CD and SACD layer from other people quite often; yet in many cases I don't hear the same thing.

One possible reason is that my Redbook CD rig is top-notch, to the point where an SACD must be truly head-and-shoulders above its CD cousin to make a noticeable difference on my system. It's been my experience when auditioning or listening to various SACD players that the emphasis is on SACD playback; their Redbook playback is usually somewhat inferior to their SACD playback.

Could this be why you found the SACD layer to be better than the CD layer; whereas I found them to be too similar to make the SACD layer stand out?
