New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

Not really new...

This goes back to the original 1 bit high frequency DACs from Philips which filtered rather than converting for analog output. The Meridian 208 (Philips "bitstream" DAC3) back in 1993 did this, and it still is the best CD player I've heard in my system. SACD/DSD was just a way of pushing that technology back to the disc, eliminating the initial oversampling conversion of the PCM source.
