SACD- What is it?

THE COMPACT DISC WAS A GREAT IDEA
HYBRID SACD IS BRILLIANT

Although a Hybrid SACD looks like a CD and is designed to play on compatible CD players, it is so much more.

Super Audio CD (SA-CD) is a major new development in consumer audio. It provides amazing richness of sound and unprecedented levels of quality by utilizing a new recording technique - Direct Stream Digital (DSD). DSD has a far higher frequency range than CD and delivers recordings faithful to the original material.
SA-CD allows the listener to reconnect with and experience music in a way never before possible.

However, a Hybrid SACD offers more.

All Hybrid SA-CD releases contain at least two separate versions of the same musical program. Many titles also contain a third version - multichannel surround sound.

CD standard stereo - this version can be played on any compatible CD player.

SA-CD stereo - if you have a SA-CD player, you'll be able to enjoy the enhanced SA-CD stereo program and the CD stereo program.

SA-CD multichannel surround sound - if you have a multichannel SA-CD player with multichannel amplifiers and speakers, you can enjoy all three versions. With multichannel sound, the listener is completely surrounded by the music of the recording.

With SA-CD, experience music as never before.
With Hybrid SA-CD, experience several musical programs.
