But you still need a new cartridge. :) Let us know hot that sacd sounds man. I have the regular cd and it sounds great to me.\n\nI do need that cart. I just have a technics slb20, I had a grado black on it and was a good balance sound and weight wise. I screwed up, didnt 'lock' the tone arm and my 3yr old spun the platter; destroyed the the stylus. \nCurrently have a denon dvd 2900, nad c316bee and the triad bookshelves. The sacd is impressive but in a more 'digital' sound (if that makes sense) I also picked up the division bell (non sacd). I did a quick a\/b comparison and very subtle differences, the sacd wins, by minimal margin, only because it seems to have a better 'live' soundstage. I'll definitely pick up another sacd or 2, but I'm guessing I'll always resort to my cheap technics table, I just enjoy the open airy hiss and pops that follow.
