    I think it was in SGTH gear guide listed an Apex player that did both SACD and DVD-A in the same unit. What's up with that? Apex? It listed for $350.00 and also had PS.

    My guess is that a player in this price range must convert the SACD DSD format to PCM (ala DVD-Audio), thus not taking advantage of the audio qualities of SACD (see http://www.audiorevolution.com/equip...acd/index.html ).
    Since there are more SACD titles available (though almost all stereo) and no player with both true SACD and DVD-Audio, this might be good for the interim.
