I was at my local BB looking through the sacd collection. Some other people were looking at the sacd players and wondering what sacd is. A BB associate asks them if they need help. They ask "what is sacd" and the bb guy says "oh that is for the 5.1 surround sound music. The potential customer asks.."so if I don't have all those speakers then sacd won't do anything for me?" bb guy: thats correct. He then continues to say that if you want to hear good music you should check out dvd-a, it is much better than sacd. I guess you don't need "all those speakers" for dvd-a? All the while, I'm looking through the bb sacd stock which is 99% 2 channel sacd! If you like to shop at the BB, just remember not to ask for any help.
