Hey

Im wondering which is better Single Layer discs or Hybrid Discs, ive heard the single layer is better thats all that I have is single layer, no Hybrid Discs

Also, are Hybrid Discs mainly other Record Companies other than Sony all of Sony's releases that ive seen are single layer


are there any good pop SACD's out there other than Sony Releases, I know all about those

Wes, if you could have single-layer discs that only play in SACD players or hybrid discs that also play in CD players too, which would you choose?

Whatever is best I would probably go with SACD single layer, if those come with the best sound, If i wanted the album to play in a regular CD i would just go by that to play in the car or something.

you have laserdisc's to ?

They hybrid and single layer sound the same the only difference is one will play in a regular cd player and one will not.

Hybrids are better, of course -- you get more for your money (SACD layer for high res music, and redbook CD layer for compatibility). The SACD layer of a hybrid should sound the same as a single layer.
