I have an SACD player and I am not convinced that there is any real difference. You might try making a copy of the redbook layer and the. Have someone switch them for you and see if it really makes a difference.
The conclusion that I am coming to is that SACDs are generally great recordings and it translates equally to the redbook and sacd layers. I do still listen to the sacd layer when it is available just in case it is better!
Howdy Folks, thanks for the very thoughtful replies.
The AudioCircle guy did reply to me. He lives somewhat nearby, so I'll probably pursue his help and maybe we'll meet up in person.
Mceljo: I do intend to follow the path you've described which is to A/B the redbook and SACD layer translated to 24/192PCM.
