I was introduced to the SACD format last night at my local CD store. I bought a couple with the understanding that my PS3 (fat) was capable of playing them. When I got home I discovered that it was the one model at 80gb that wouldn't, went through all my old dvd/cd players and found that none of them were capable. Is it, in your opinion, worth it to make the investment in equipment and cds at this point in time? Is this a viable format that still has some releases coming out? From my few hours of research last night and this morning it seems that the low cost option of buying a Sony bluray player may not give me the clarity to fully enjoy these discs. I'm not sure I want to buy another $600-$1000 piece of equipment. Just spent 5k on Aperion Grand Verus 5 speaker setup, Yamaha rx-a3000, Emotiva X-ref 12, Panasonic bdp210, and peripherals. The guy at store said SACD would be great in a semi audiophile setup like mine, just wondering if it would be worth the cost for someone who does not have endless funds? All thoughts appreciated. Thanks.
