Re: Help needed on SACD players and Hi-Fi Systems
+1, yes, get good speakers first. Remember that a system is only as good as it's weakest component. Next, I would recommend a good multi-channel amplifier to push them. You will need a receiver with analog inputs. SACD (and DVD-Audio I think, yes Glen?) require individual channel analog inputs. This was done to prevent piracy I beleive. So, a receiver with 6 (including the sub) analog inputs will be required to utilize the multi-channel music formats. Kind of like when hot rodding a car, they say to start at the muffler and work your way back, I recommend the same thing here, start at the speakers and work your way back.
