    Finally, a CD to justify a SACD player purchase! What's the "non-hybrid" mean?

    No.

    I have an open, unbiased mind.

    Good is good. No matter what the format.

    I, personally, can't tell a nickles worth of a difference between the two.

    Well, I may not have one of those $100K audiophile systems you've been known to post about, but I'll take the Pepsi challenge with my system against a whole host of other peoples, and probably come out smelling like a rose at least 50% of the time.

    At least I'm happy with it for the moment. [​IMG]

    Sunfire Cinema Grand
    Sunfire Theater Grand II
    Sunfire True Sub
    Klipsch Cornwalls - front (26 years old & sounding great!)
    Klipsch RC 7 - center
    Polk Rt1000 - Rear
    Toshiba SD9200 - DVD-A
    Sony C555ES - SACD

    And.....if everything goes as planned this year, I hope to be replacing my Cornwalls with a set of B&W N801's (at the very least a set of N802's [​IMG])

    Lee, sorry, but I think Al's system is just fine. [​IMG]

    Just a thought - is it possible that the Sunfire electronics don't have true analog bypass? I am not familiar with the Sunfire pre/pro and amplifiers other than reading about them in various magazines - but if they don't have true analog bypass it could be possible that the SACD signal is being "digitally processed". If this were the case I could see how both DVD-A and SACD could sound the same.

    I have both DVD-A and SACD - I can definitely tell the difference between and SACD and a DVD-A. That said, I like both formats, but I prefer SACD overall.

    Al, that's fine. It's not like you said you couldn't hear a difference between SACD and CD. [​IMG]

    back to the subject...

    i wouldn't post here if i wasn't a huge Oasis fan to begin with, but i'm questioning an SACD of an album that wasn't recorded well to begin with. matter of fact, most of Oasis' albums are nothing to write home about recording-wise. i love Oasis for their songwriting mostly, so the recording comes second, but still....

    Al,

    You've got it! That's all you need to know about SACDs versus CDs. [​IMG]


    All,

    I have What's The Story (Morning Glory)? on CD, and I agree it is nothing special soundwise. It's typical of modern pop and rock recordings that sound like total crap. The music is great, however. Even if the SACD delivers just an incremental improvement, it's an improvement. We shall see.

    John, i also have the Oasis Dvd's and love them. Supersonic live is the ONLY way to listen to that song IMO. [​IMG]

    Whats the Story ...thank god!.... was recorded before the brothers found that damn compression knob and turned it up to 11.

    Whenever I put my Megachangers on Shuffle at a resonable volume....the Oasis song rattles the bleeding walls.

    After spending a couple of years in the North of England, I know they did that so their songs jump out of the jukebox in a loud and crowded pub...which makes a lot of sense on their part.
    It just sucks when you have a decent system
