HDCD CDs, do they play (correctly) on normal CD player?
OK, I first admit I'm not sure what the HDCD really is, and what is required to play it properly. I've read some of the white papers out there, hence my confusion.
I just noticed a CD was marked "HDCD" on it (Kenny Wayne Shepard-Live On). I remember playing it in the car's CD, and it sounding somewhat "bad". I just tried it in my Sony BDP-BX510 blu ray, and it seems to play fine.
However, before I load it into my Sony Jukebox (Sony CDP-CX400), I'm wondering if it will play properly.
So, what is an "HDCD" CD, and what equipment can play it properly? I've heard these HDCDs distort at the peaks in normal CD players........
Sometimes I have to remind myself that I bought all this "stuff" to enjoy it!
