I purchased Yamaha's universal SACD/DVD-A DVD player a few weeks ago just to see what all the shouting was about. I got a pretty good deal on it--$750 as a demo and closeout (the dealer, Magnolia HiFi, will no longer sell Yamaha because it's competing against its parent, Best Buy). I have demoed SACD in the past, but nothing I heard really floored me. To try out my new player, I purchased the Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon SACD, along with Alison Krauss live and The Police Every Breath You Take. I also already owned the Rolling Stones two-disc SACD hybrid. On the DVD-A side, I purchased Fleetwood Mac Rumours, and borrowed a few more from a buddy. To be brief, everything I listened to sounded great, tremendous. But I have come to the conclusion that I am not going to go out and repurchase my old CD collection in SACD or DVD-A. It's not worth it. At least not to me. I have, however, satisfied my curiosity about hi-rez music. So the Yamaha is going back for a full refund. I highly recommend the player. It has its quirks, but all in all its audio performance and video display are excellent.
