Is SACD really this lousy?

Bought a Sony SCD 1 and this is boring me in my system. Have had it for 2 weeks and just cannot get interested. Previously I had a CAL CL2o and we were astounded by how the DVD DAD's sounded-fall into the soundstage, reach out and touch the performers. Also the dynamic range used every bit of the VTL's 275 watts into the Maggies. The 44/16 side of the CL20 was at best lukewarm. This after coming off a Meridian 508 20. Then I tried the Wadia 270/27ix. In my system, all the write ups were proven wrong. Then I went to the Linn Ikemi. It was great except I couldn't forget that sound of the DVD's with the CL20. I went to get the Sony SCD 1. I don't have a dealer here but trusted it wouldn't dissappoint. WRONNNG! I called Steve Huntley at Great Northern Sound to see if he could do anything. He said it was a great player, it's just that Sony missed the boat when it came to the analog section. He is in fact drawing up a mod to deal with this very thing that he says will approach the Accuphase. That however will cost anywhere from $1500 roonies for the SACD side to $3500 for both. Anybody have any comment on this or am I the only one experiencing disappointment?
And I've heard Britney say she hasn't had surgery, but I'd really need to see her sans top to decide for sure. They can be quite perky and nice when they're short on years, as some of us might now...And gee, I hate her "music". That fad certainly will die out quickly, it can't be too soon for me. Problem is, it'll be replaced by something worse, like monkeys and kangaroos gettin their groove on...or something.
Hi Carl; My predispositions are not relevant here (but I think I have an open mind). The statistical significance of Ackerman's study is highly relavant (but unreported). Universaties will often informally publish (in-house) MS and PHD theses even without statistical significance-- after all, negative information can be valuable too, and in these cases, it is the effort and quality that is graded. Reputable scientific journals don't publish non-significant results because they can't afford to-- methods and results have to stand up to peer review. I would just like to see the FINAL result(s) of Ackerman's study. If they aren't significant, I'd guess we'll never see them though. Craig
In response to the posting from 3141510, Now I am really confused. I try to address your issues, and you make no sense at all. As far as Miles Davis, not only do I admire him, I purchased (probably) every recording he ever made. However, concerning your comments about Louis Armstrong, you state (I quote) "He is not even a musician, let alone artist." Since this differs so much from my belief, I visited AMG, and here is what is stated in the musical and historical facts in the relationships concerning Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong: I quote exactly: "Miles Davis had quite a career, one with so many innovations that his name is one of the few that can be spoken in the same sentence with Duke Ellington. ROOTS AND INFLUENCES: Dizzy Gillespie Roy Eldridge Bobby Hackett Harry James Freddy Webster Louis Armstrong Bix Beiderbecke Charlie Parker Clark Terry." Please note that Louis Armstrong is listed as an influential contributor to the music of Miles Davis. This certainly points to the fact that Louie Armstrong was indeed a great musician, and where he may be in a "generation gap" where you are concerned, he is indeed an important contributor. Louis and Miles are both a vital part of the history of Jazz, and that is not in any way just my opinion.
All right, you asked.When I say listeners are manufactured I mean that most "music lovers" are in fact nothing but consumers gobbling up everything in their path.I find it difficult to understand how anyone can like Beatles and Dead Can Dance equally.These people are gatherers and nothing more.As LPs are inconvinient compared to any digital format,the analog records will most certainly die out since no one (including you) is going to pay for LPs five times the price of digital.If Miles Davis was influenced by Armstrong,then Paco de Lucia is influenced by Russian folk balalaika music and John McLaughlin by Bill Clinton.
You are definitely entitled to your opinion, but I will accept the facts at an established music site over a person who is amused by silly comparisons. My effort was sincere, it appears you are following another agenda.
