    It's a tad misleading to say that it 'Cannot Play' SACD. Denon Link SE doesn't pass SACD, true, but the player does indeed play the discs, and will pass the bitstream thru firewire (IEEE 1394), although the internal decoders are top-flight, so analogue-outs may be even better.

    What logo is it you object to? the DLink logo or the SACD?

    DenonLink has received approval for transmission of SACD 2.0, so I would have thought that such a recently released product would at least provide necessary hardware support, but might then require a firmware update once the 2.0 spec is ratified - unless of course it already has.

    Ed:
    Umm. just found an addendum on Audioholics stating "At this time, Denon has no information about the upgradability of current 1.3 specification SACD products to the upcoming 2.0 specification."

    No manufacturer with SACD players on the market presently does, and that includes both Sony and Philips (the inventors of the format).
