Pioneer have released a player, who can play DVD-A and SACD. It costs about 1300 bucks here in Germany... that's the best way for all audiophile lovers. Why waste $$$ for a DVD-A or SACD, when you can get both in one! I will wait til one of the high end manufactures (dCS, Krell, Mark Levinson...) will offer such a combination... Sorry Steve, I don't like this japanese crap... not good enuff for my ears!
