I finally decided to give some SACD a try and have been picking up a few titles, mostly Classical. I have a used Oppo 970HD on the way, which I purchased here on HTF, and I'm wondering how people choose to connect their SACD players. None of my gear is particularly new, but I do have excellent Thiel CS 3.6 speakers driven by an Aragon 4004II amp, so the audio capabilities are well above average. I also have an excellent outboard DAC, but it is 15 years old, so I doubt it can handle the SACD digital output. So, I understand I can just use the regular digital audio output from the Oppo 970HD (No hdmi in my system yet) to my receiver, which is a Pioneer VSX-56TXi. Does this work? I'm guessing the DACs in the Pioneer are better than the ones in the Oppo. I do have one concert DVD with 24/192 DTS, which the Pioneer does decode, so that leads me to believe it can also handle the high res digital output from the Oppo. Also, are there really any DVD-A titles released anymore? Are they mostly more modern stuff, as in, not Classical? Another thing I'm curious about is feedback on some of the old Telarc recordings which have been remastered and released on SACD. How do they measure up, in general, to the newer recordings?
