    On my Yamah RX-1200 there is a skinny slot type of input, similar to the wide end of a USB cable, or the sort of cable that cell phones take to link up to a PC. In the manual, it says

    >"proprietary digital interface for Yamaha SACD players"

    That don't sound too good.

    I thought firewire was settled on?

    I'm not sure if its been settled on, and I was just speculating about the Yamaha connection. If I recall, before any digital interface was announced, Dennon had announced a propriatary digital interface for the 5803 and its high end players. I think the manufacturers are getting tired of waiting for a "standard"

    Yeah, thats kind of what I thought. I'm getting kind of antsy about SACD, but there really hasnt been anything to come out that meets my needs. I want bass management, but not at 120Hz. Hopefully the new Sony and Philips (and other manufacturers) players released this year will have more options.

    Yeah, I've looked into it, but at a given budget for SACD (say $500) I would think a future $500 SACD player with better bass management would be better than a $250 SACD player and a ICBM.
