I find it very confusing trying to determine which kinds of SACD discs can be played on standard CD players and which require SACD players. Does the disc specifically have to have the term â€œHybrid SACDâ€ associated with it to play on a standard CD player?
What about a â€œSingle Layer Multichannel SACDâ€ disc that doesnâ€™t say Hybrid? Does that have to be played in a SACD player? If itâ€™s the latter, what would happen if I tried to play it in a regular CD player?
I find that the biggest culprit in this confusion is SONY Corporation. They donâ€™t specify which of their SACD discs can be played in regular CD players and which require SACD players. They also apparently donâ€™t use the term â€œHybridâ€ as near as I can tell.
Thanks for any input.
