Have any of you have problem with SACD that skids? I bought a SONY Murray Perahia Goldburg Variation that skids every 10-15 seconds starting from the 2nd track. I returned it and the new one skids slightly less but the problem was still there. I have a Marantz SA1 and none of my other 20+ SACDs (mostly SONY) have any problems. By the way, it skids in a very unique way. When it skids, the music doesn't stop. Instead, it was making a bird chirping noise. Have anyone of you have that problem?
Rdr4b, I have the Marntz SA-1 player and love it. I have about 50 SACDs, including about 25 Sony SACDs and never experienced skidding. Get a level and make sure it's perfect. Also a solid rack and upgraded power cord will even make the Marantz SA-1 sound sweeter.
