Hello,
I am new to SACD and would like to pick up some CD's to here what SACD is all about. After viewing a few websites on titles, I am confused about formats. I see the word Hybrid Stereo and Hybrid M/C. What does it mean when the word Hybrid is used? Are there any other formats for SACD? I listen to most anything, so please give me suggestions on titles. Where does everyone purchase their music? Online somewhere?

Thanks,
Russ

A hybrid disc has a cd layer for playback in regular cd players. Some disc's are 2 ch, others multi-ch. Read the packaging carefully. As for title's, Jeff Beck gets allot of ink as does Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd. I like the m/c Toto IV, also sold in a 2 ch version.
