New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

I don't understand the debate-SACD sounds way better than CD to me

I'm starting to think this issue just comes to biology. I think some people just have the ears to hear the difference in hi-rez music, while others don't.

I've been listening to two SACD's lately: Bob Dylan's "Blood on the Tracks" and Carol King's "Tapestry." They both sound clearly better to me than their CD counterparts. And here's the thing: I don't even have a set of speakers for my player yet. The sound is coming through my TV's speakers, and I still hear the difference -I swear.

Another interesting fact: often, when my family is done watching TV, they will turn off the cable box, but not the TV itself. The screen goes blank so they think the TV is off. But I know it's still on because I can hear the high-pitched whining sound it is making. I am the only one in my family who hears this, and it annoys the crap out of me so I always must make sure both the TV and the cable box are off. But no one else in my family picks up this sound.

Is it possible only certain people have sensitive enough ears to pick up on the improvements in hi-rez music?
