I have a little problem with my first tests with SACD.

I have some saturation effection in the high pitched voices.
I don't have the same issue via my normal Cd player with the same disc.

Here is my SACD configuration :

SACD player converting it to PCM 88khz> HDMI to DVDO Edge > Optical out to my DAC (DAC detect the 88khz) > amp > speakers.

My normal CD configuration :

CD player 44hz > DAC > Amp > speakers.

Do you have any idea.

Does the SACD player have analog outputs?
What if you plug it directly to the Amp analog audio inputs?

No, only via HDMI, because I wanted to use my own DAC (stereo optimised).
Maybe using the edge as a transfert from HDMI audio to Digial Optical out is a bad idea ? Too long cable + the edge maybe introduce bad effect ?

OK, I did the test with the CD layer, and in fact, the problem is the same.
I also tested it with an other audio device (sega saturn + television^^, the most basic !) and the saturation is here too.
Then, this SACD is a failure ! The reference is "tous les matins du monde" Code : 7619986398211

i asked the shop a remplacement CD. We will see if it is a problem of the item or the mastering.

Are you sure it’s not because SACD was really never meant to be decoded with an external DAC?

I’m a big supporter of the 5.1 analog out (regardless how bulky it is with all the cables) since it eliminates any additional conversion steps and overall I’m good with my players internal converters.

Yes, I thought first, but as I tested the disc in CD version with an internal DAC in the most simple configuration (saturn + TV speakers) and compare it to the SACD configuration (SACD player (DSD to PCM 88) to DAC to Amp to speakers), and found the same sound problem at the same place on the disc, then i should be the mastering record.

What's the SACD disc title? Maybe someone else here has it too?
