    look at the 700 and 500 models they are hybrid sacd players. What that means is that there are certain SACD discs that have a layer that has CD quality as well which will play in normal cd players. The 1500 model will play sacd which is the higher resolution:

    this is what dennon say:
    Super Audio CD uses a new and radically different technology called Direct Stream Digital (DSD) to convert music into a digital signal that can be stored on a disc. Compared to the traditional PCM method (the technology used for CD), DSD offers a much higher resolution by following more closely the original wave form of music. With a frequency response of over 100kHz and a dynamic range over 120dB across the audible frequency range – some 64 times higher resolution then CD - Super Audio CD offers music reproduction that reveals details you just can’t hear on a normal CD.

    The Direct Stream Digital pulse train "looks" remarkably like the analog waveform it represents. More pulses point up as the wave goes positive and down as the wave goes negative.

    The DVD-Audio is a alternative method for listening to music at a much higher quality than your standard CD's.

    You can transfer SACD from a DVD player to a amplifier via 6 phono cables or using IEEE1394-output (Digital Audio).

    bare in mind that of what i heard on this forum SACD has alot of classical music tittles but not so many of the other types.

    hope this helps:thumbsup:
