DSD-DIRECT STREAM DIGITAL The next generation in music reproduction. From the earliest digital recordings and 16-bit Compact Discs on up to even the latest 24-bit recordings, digital audio has always used multi-bit PCM technology. Until now. Now there`s Direct Stream Digital (tm) recording, a one-bit system that`s fundamentally different. Thanks to an amazing 2,822,400 samples per second, you get audio performance that no other format can deliver. Where CD frequency response extends to 20,000 Hz, DSD technology can theoretically reach 100,000 Hz. Where CD has dynamic range of 96 dB, DSD recording can achieve 120 dB across the entire audible range. The difference is breathtaking. If you care passionately about music, then SACD will inflame that passion as never before.
HYBRID SACD This Super Audio CD contains two layers, one layer with the new DSD signal and one with the current `standard` CD layer. This disc actually contains three separate versions of the same musical program. 1.Direct Stream Digital multichannel surround sound 2.Direct Stream Digital two-channel stereo 3.CD standard stereo These hybrid discs are compatible with the players you already have.
