    Can someone tell me what these are? Whether they are important in a DVD/CD player? and whether my Tosh SD9500E can play them?

    Cheers :)

    Well if it has SACD and HDCD logos on the front of it, it's a fair guess that it will play them.

    SACD stands for Super Audio CD and was developed by sony & philips to further enhance cd music replay to true audiophile status. SACD is currently supported by quite a number of dvd players out there especially sony and philips dvd players. No toshiba currently supports SACD, instead they support DVD Audio which as the title suggest is high resolution multichannel music playback.

    DVD Players from some manufacturer's (pioneer,denon,marantz) support both formats on the latest crop of dvd players which are referred to as 'Universal Players'

    Toshiba sd 9500 E is a very good DVDAudio/Video player, but if you really want SACD, you have to try the likes of pioneer, denon etc.

    HDCD standards for High definition compact disc. HDCD encoded discs perform better than non HDCD encoded cd's , however you need HDCD compatible hardware, which are not very common as they are mainly in high end electronics like the toshiba 9500e
