    Just curious but is there any s'ware that can extract and playback SACD's ... I'm looking to build an htpc and as I have dvd-audio playback on my dv27a was wondering if a htpc could do the other ?

    Not currently,AFAIK,since Sony are being very careful with licensing and copyright issues regarding the digital data stream,and even hardware based solutions are not available for the PC market.
    The best you can currently hope for is obviously to use the CD layer.
