  New to SACD. Generally, I like records more than regular CDs, but I am truly enjoying the few SACDs I have heard (Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Michael Tilson Thomas' Mahler). I may even like SACD more than records. But I'm wondering if I'm going to *need* to buy a multichannel setup. I hadn't wanted to, but it's not clear if every hybrid SACD contains a stereo SACD/DSD mix on the SACD layer.

I find I like to play three discs at a time (my attention span doesn't go as far as five discs). Also, it's nice to be able to not get up and change discs while ... more

I completely agree. I've only been listening to SACD for six weeks, and feel it combines the best features of CD and LP. I know I've had a real conversion, because when I came across a shopping cart filled with three boxes of old vinyl yesterday that someone had left behind when they moved, I only went through the first couple of inches.
