What is SACD?
SACD stands for Super Audio CD, a high-resolution audio format that uses Direct Stream Digital (DSD) encoding to deliver superior sound quality compared to conventional CDs. SACD discs can store up to six channels of surround sound or two channels of stereo sound, and can also include text and graphics information[^6^]. SACD discs are compatible with most DVD players and some Blu-ray players, as well as dedicated SACD players.
