I have a sony DVP-S9000ES SACD player and I love it for both redbook and SACD. I'll bet the SCD-1 is even better with its 6 DACs. Mine is feeding a Berning OTL and single driver speakers and the sound is fantastic. The SACD beats redbook hands down simply because there is more on the disc to begin with. I know we need to play redbook now because of the selection available and my opinion is that the Sony will play as well as any comparably priced CD deck. But, once alot of SACDs are available you won't be playing redbook unless you have to. The sound is as close to vinyl as you can get and you also get all the convenience advantages of CD. I think it's a great time for audio!
