I just yesterday picked up a cheap Sony BD-Player because all sony BD-Players play SACD and it had a coax digital out so I could let my HK 3490 do the D/A conversion so I'm not hurting myself with a cheap player. Anyway I also picked up my first SACD, Nora Jones "Come away with me". I also have this on CD and wow what a difference. There is so much more realism and clarity on SACD. I am in awe. It's like she's right here in the room with me, even my wife could hear the difference. Now I got to go back and read this thread and get recommendations on other SACD's to purchase. The only place nearby that sells them that I know of is Frys. I checked amazon and they are still pretty expensive. Where is the best/cheapest place to buy SACD's?
That is a long answer and discussion, Tweaked05. Many, if not most, of the remaining Pop and Rock SACDs are either out of print and command significant prices on the used market, or sold by specialty music labels that sell at higher list prices than the major labels. I would always check the following site first for prices, the Amazon prices it links to are a fair indicator of what a SACD currently goes for on the Internet.
As for where to buy them, most SACD distribution and retail has moved to Internet retailers. Amazon, eBay, audiogon, etc. are popular places to buy new and used SACDs. You also might want to move away from the digital coax connection, you are not hearing the true SACD sound through that connection. Due to copyright concerns and bandwidth limitations, coax connections do not reproduce the full SACD sound. If you have an analog connection on your BD player, I would use that connection. The only digital connection that can support the full DSD sound from a SACD is the Denonlink, or a receiver with the latest HDMI connection that also supports DSD.
