Yo Yo Ma, "Solo". Opus 3 "Showcase", "Elliot Fisk plays Bach and Scarlatti", Red Rose/levinson. All of these SACDs are superb recordings. BTW, I abandoned SACD as I found that CDs on a good CD player sounded better, but that's my problem. Just thought I'd mention it.

Peter Gabriel's "UP". Diana Krall's "Girl in the Other Room", are examples of great SACDs, I think. Don't know about CDs sounding "better" but Chayro does have a point. Just because it's called SACD doesn't mean the sound is automatically SUPERior. Ordered a bunch of SACD's from Elusive Disc. They ain't ALL that special. Some just seem on par with a re-mastered CD - and you know the range of opinions about remastering. Good luck.
For multi-channel aka surround sound SACDs (which to me sound light years ahead of two channel SACDs), without question number one is Elton John's "Honky Chateau". Also "Toto IV", Bob Dylan "Blood on the Tracks", Allman Bros "Live at the Fillmore East" & "Eat a Peach", Pieces of a Dream "Love's Silhouette" & "No Assembly Required", Fourplay "Energy", Carole King "Tapestry".
Classical guitar offerings on SACD seem to be few and far between. Some that look interesting to me (although I don't own any of these as yet) are:
Although not SACD, there are a couple of classical offerings on HDCD from Reference Recordings by Roberto Moronn PÃ©rez:
