Another consideration would be an ability to play a copy of SACD on DVD-R media. It is more important going forward, as there is less and less opportunity to find SACD disks new. But copies of old records are commonly available. None of the SONY players can play SACD on DVD-R. Oppo BD player work, older OPPO DVD players require customized firmware. Most Pioneer DVD players work too. There are several web sites dedicated to SACD copying (they refer to them as SACD-R), you can find more information there.
