Tried search, but the only results I found were in Italian. :confused:

Are these things popular in Europe or something, or has it been that long since I’ve been in a music store? I find it hard to believe that record companies are selling many of these discs in the US…

Super Audio CD, a new format with more options, including protection-schemes. DVD-audio is its competitor.

Don’t forget about HDCD…
Don’t know much about it, but I do know that my CD player supports it and the latest Beegees CD has it…

Both SACD and HDCD are not very common and only have very few titles… (in the music store I visit almost weekly they have a showcase for SACD, but as far as I could see it only held like 20 titles at most…)

SACD is fantastic to listen to.
One problem though…
To really hear the difference between CDDA and SACD you need equipment costing at least 5 to 10.000$
