    A number of high-end SACD players have been displayed at CES, including units from MSB, Bel Canto, Lindeman, Music Hall, and Shanling. This is according to highfidelityreview.com. The most down to earth player of the lot is the Music Hall MMF CD-50, which will list for $1495. It will offer upsampling of CDs and playback of stereo SACD tracks (apparently, no multi-channel SACD playback). The MMF CD-50 is expected to be out in March.
    The Shanling SCD-7200 will be a tube player and will list for $2695. It will be out in February.

    Charles,
    No problem. All is well here. Busy with the wedding and all, but all is well. Hope all is well with you too.
    Lee,
    I should have figured you would post about this. [​IMG] I love the look of that Shanling player, though the Music Hall unit with upsampling of CDs could be somewhat of a high-end bargain.

    James, highfidelityreview.com stated that Sony would not be showing any new SACD hardware at CES. Sony supposedly will be announcing new hardware later in the year, though there was no mention of what types of components might be coming (e.g., DVD or no DVD).
