New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

Finding a suitable transport?

Interesting take on this issue. My theory: in order to design an SACD player, you need to have access to a suitable transport device. As you observed, this doesn't seem to deter the high-end Japanese companies, but it may inhibit some of the other companies. Just a theory.

Ayre has two SACD-capable machines in its product line-up: one is based on the Oppo transport, and I understand that the other one uses a Pioneer transport. One can only assume that Ayre has a plentiful supply of both mechanisms on hand to ensure proper support in the future. The other manufacturers that you've mentioned may not want to go down that road.
