Well, I thought that could help to understand why you do not hear the difference:
Hi-res" has no audible improvement over redbook 16/44
I did not mean whatsoever that in order to hear the difference more expensive equipment has to be used, just wanted to get more details.
I was afraid that if this is really true, those big guys like Sony, if they would read this forum, would start getting nervous and plan to kill SACD as a format they invented and stop new SACD equipment future developments. No one wants to be accused for pushing an industry which appears does not provide any value adding to listeners.....Edited by bordo32 - 12/11/13 at 2:35pm
