Super Audio CD (SACD)



Our selection of SACD capable players


Super Audio CD (SACD) is a high-resolution CD for audio storage. Sony and Philips Electronics jointly developed the technology, and publicized it in 1999. It is designated as the Scarlet Book standard. SACDs allow greater dynamic range and may hold more playing time than regular CDs. SACD audio streams are encoded in Direct Stream Digital (DSD), though a manufacturer may also write a standard "layer" compatible with conventional Compact Disc players.
