    Only tried a couple of discs myself, but have been more impressed by DVD-A than i was with SACD.

    Defientaly a step up in detail from my MF DAC.

    I have the DV89 also and am very impressed with DVD-A through it. Obviously for it to sound impressive it needs to be set up properly with all the correct levels and speakers distances set on the player, I have also found that investing a decents interconnects for the 6 channel output can help a lot, I currently use three pairs of Black Rhodium Rhythm interconnects for mine and have a separate QED silver Spiral for DVD-A stereo mixes as the DV89 has two pairs of outputs for the front left and right speakers and so makes it easy to invest in a higher quality interconnect for stereo use. Discs I have bought recently that I have been impressed with are listed below:

    The Flaming Lips: Yoshimo Battles The Pink Robots
    Mike Oldfield: Tubular Bells
    Fleetwood Mac: Rumours
    Donald Fagen: The Nightfly
    Steely Dan: Everything Must Go
    Steely Dan: Two Against Nature
