Hi John, If SACD does become a commercially viable alternative, manufacturers will provide SACD/DVD-A compatible transports/DACs. However, that has yet to be proven. If you already have a large CD library, why not look toward getting the most out of your current format? The Electrocompaniet CD player or current Goldmund separates, and I'm sure others as well, will give you vastly improved performance. Let the marketplace battle out the format wars, meanwhile the price will continue to drop on the format that will eventually dominate. Personally, I don't believe either will make any serious inroads into the "real" marketplace, where MP-3 is embraced and CD provides "perfect sound for ever". However, if you must follow after SACD now, at least look into the upgradeability of the DACs to the SACD and/or DVD-A standard. Several manufacturers are already claiming this about their DACs. Goodluck.
