What is SACD? What is the difference between SACD and normal CD?
A Super Audio CD looks and operates just like a normal CD. Put the disc into any player with SA-CD functionality, select the track number on the player or remote control and press play. But that is where the similarity ends.
Super Audio CD opens up an entirely new and unique listening experience. The SA-CD format provides audio performance that no other format can deliver. The difference is breathtaking - as if you have been transported into the middle of the musical performance, in the recording studio or concert hall. This huge advance in listening capabilities is enabled by new and radically different recording techniques used for Super Audio CD.
