I’m sure your all aware of our fellow blogger ‘SACD2DVD-A’s’ blog devoted to making available PS3 transfers of SACDs on DVD-A/V.
A few weeks ago, Owen Smith sent out some information regarding some news that it has been found that a very small number of Blu-Ray/SACD players can be made to digitally export the information on SACD’s exactly as is done with the PS3 process.
Although this information was of great interest, the price of these players is normally well of my reach nowadays, plus as i already have a Denon player, spending such a sum on a machine that would only get very occasional use was not viable, and not just on the issue of not having the funds.
But, through sheer luck, i saw an advert for one of the units (Pioneer BDP-170) going for a ridiculously low price. After contacting the seller i was really surprised to find that it was still available, so after breaking into the blog’s piggy bank, i paid for it and awaited the delivery.
It arrived in A1 mint condition, seems he’d bought it, used it a couple of times then replaced it with an OPPO.
Anyway, to get to the point of this posting, i have a small selection of 5.1 SACD’s that i will be made available on DVD-A/V via SACD2DVDA’s blog at irregular intervals.
The first has just been released……
