    Re: Who still makes SACD players?

    Although these are not made anymore, they are still around in copious quantities. I have a Sony Playstation 3 that I bought from a friend who had installed the proper software to rip my SACDs into .iso files. I then convert them to .dsf files in stereo and when available mch files to playback through my stereo and mch DACs. I bought an Oppo 105 shortly after Oppo announced it was closing down its production, mostly so I could continue to rip SACDs if and when the PS3 failed. It can play SACDs, but I don't use it for that purpose.

    Re: Who still makes SACD players?

    What is SACD and DMP? So many acronyms and other things to learn when you haven't been into high end audio for 40 years. Trying to get up to speed with all the recent technology but it is indeed a challenge.

    And.....are CD players made within the last 10 years of good sonic quality? I have 2 Yamaha CD players (one for each HT system, upstairs and downstairs) that are about 10 years old but have had very little use. Are these adequate for an audiophile system? About 99% of my CDs have been ripped to iTunes (WAV files) and an external HD. My main source will be streaming so I wasn't planning on adding an expensive CD player to my new system. Should I?

    If your new integrated amp has a DAC for your streaming, you can use the digital out of the Yamaha into the same DAC to play CD's.

    SACD = Super Audio CD. The discs need the SACD player to play them but the player was backward compatible with regular CD. I can't remember the technical specs, SACD was a higher resolution over a typical CD.
