SACD and DVD-A together?


Novice Member
It seems that most players I am looking at do either SACD or DVD-Audio.....but I now want both...

What decent(ish) players support both formats in the < &#163;250 bracket?

Need to replace my dead S97 - RIP :(

Well I was always a fan of the Pioneer range, having and still own a Pioneer 565, 575 and 868....

So even though I've not seen one in action I would start by investigating the Pioneer DV-696.

According to the current issue (133) of Home Cinema Choice, Pioneer have unveiled their 2006 range of DVD players, including the DV-696 which, for £130, offers both DVD-A and SACD, as well as HDMI output and "DivX Ultra" certification (playback of all versions 3.11 to 6, plus support for DivX 'home theatre' profile).

Sounds like it'll be a pretty good buy, especially when the discounters get their hands on it.

Best of luck.

Still have my Pioneer 656a, supports both formats.

The only drawback being no prog. scan through component.
