Re: SACD versus CD, can it play on my DVD player?


Super Audio Compact Disks (SACD's) your DVD player should by all means be able to play with no problems.

When CD's are gold plated they are typically remastered and then gold plated (I'm sure there are exceptions to this rule, but I have yet to see it) so obviously yes, you will hear a difference. Same is true for remastered gold plated vinyl and yes, you should be able to clearly hear a difference between a standard CD versus a SACD, but having never ever heard anything through your actual ears, I do not have a clue of what you will hear and what you will not. Which is ironically true for each and every single one of us.

So going out and listening to them for yourself would be key, very similar to food magically enough.

Subject: [TechTalk] SACD versus CD, can it play on my DVD player?

I am thinking about purchasing some SACD's for my music collection but
am not sure if they would play on the DVD player on my Dell desktop.
Also, if you have experience with SACD's or gold plated CD's, can you
tell a difference in sound quality from a regular music CD recording?
