Okay so I am about to blow most of my budget on a H/K AVR 525. That leaves about $150-$200 for other stuff. I have been thinking of getting my feet wet with SACD, on the other hand I am thinking that a nice higher end cd player would also be a good investment. I have no problem buying used on ebay. I am wondering what your suggestions are, any recommendations of a good cheap SACD player, etc.

Get the new Pioneer. It has SACD and DVD audio for under $180 at BB. If I could get one cheaply modified for SDI I would get it in a heartbeat.

SDI: Serial Digital Interface

Basically the bitstream gets dumped out in an unaltered fashion. It is non copy protected, and therefore not supported by the DVD Forum.


But a number of botique markets are popping up to support it. For example, modifying the RCA DTC-100 to output SDI and recording it onto a digital tape deck for perfect reproduction (bit-perfect) playback of hi-def sources (HDNet, HBO-HiDef) (See 169time.com)
