    Hi,

    Would someone be kind enough to confirm whether Arcam DVD players (the DV29 in particular) can recognise/replay the CD layer of hybrid SACDs. I have been offered the recently remastered War of the Worlds disk in that format and wanted to check it would play before I accepted. I will (hopefuly) be getting the CD36 for Crimbo anyway, but in the meantime.......

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Hi Greg,

    I have a DV29 and it plays my Diana Krall SACD hybrid disc no problem so guess it should play your planned purchase.

    CD layer on hybrid SACD’s is (AFAIK) fully compliant with “redbook CD standard”, so it can be played on EVERY player capable of CD playback.

    They should in theory be able to play them but I have ahd a few issues with my DV29 and the War Of The Worlds SACD, although the DV29 at work plays them fine. I have a CD36 for CDs so it does not really bother me at all.
