Sony is selling out an SACD player, the SCD CE775, for $199.95. I bought one myself tonight, and could not be happier. It's a little on the light side with a fixed power cord, but I have been listening to jaw-dropping SACD sound all night. My sound has never been so rich, with such an expansive soundstage it made me laugh at first, all while being hyper-detailed, perfectly paced, and completely uncolored. I could use the rest of the clicheed terms, but to those who have heard SACD they are unnecessary. I had to laugh, though. MJ's Thriller sounded exactly how I remember it on vinyl. Also, the title selections are limited, but I still spent more on SACDs than I spent on the player. Bought were: Stevie Ray Vaghan and Double Trouble, Texas Flood Tony Bennet, Unplugged Grover Washington, Jr., Prime Cuts Willie Nelson, Stardust Issac Stern, Vivaldi's Four Seasons Michael Jackson, Thriller Deep Forest III, Comparsa. A/Bing between a copy of Comparsa on the $200 Sony and a non-SACD copy on my $1400 Adcom GCD-750 showed the total limitations of the now-banal CD player. I just didn't want to listen to anything else besides SACD. For those who are interested, here is a link to the audioreview ranking: http://www.audioreview.com/PRD_126697_2758crx.aspx Everything but SACD playback may be standard/substandard, but I could care less. It is a stunning player for short money, and I look forward to hearing it after the rumored 400 hour break-in time. I highly recommend this player to those who are considering going SACD. My system: B&K Reference 4420 Adcom GCD-750 Adcom GFA-750 Linn Tukan Audioquest Viper interconnects JPS Superconductor cabling Music and Sound power cords throughout. It's a work in progress, but I did have a professional installer friend come over and help me set it up so far. We've only been in the house for 6 months, and I am finally getting around to the basement. The ceiling is low, and the floor is a light carpet over concrete. Compared to the condo that I came from, this is heaven.
