Super Audio Compact Disc (SACD) Player
SACD players play Super Audio CDs (SACDs) and convert their digital audio (DSD) into either stereo or 5.1 music signals. There are single-disc SACD players, as well as five-disc SACD changers. SACD players can be stereo-only or multi-channel SACD players have 5.1 audio outputs.
Audiophiles today still cling onto SACD as a format and invest in SACD players, despite the format's death in mainstream music and audio. SACD continues to represent about as good a sound as a consumer can find in the marketplace today and some boutique labels (Linn Records, Chesky, Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs) and others still sell music on SACD.
