About the Super Audio CD
Super Audio CD is a new high-quality audio disc standard where music is recorded in the DSD (Direct
Stream Digital) format (conventional CDs are recorded in the PCM format). The DSD format, using a sampling frequency 64 times higher than that of a conventional
CD, and with 1-bit quantization, achieves both a wide frequency range and a wide dynamic range across the audible frequency range, and so provides music reproduction extremely faithful to the original sound.
The Super Audio CD has two types; a 2 channel stereo disc and a Multi-channel disc which holds up to 6 independent channels. The multi-channel characteristic of the Super Audio CD features a speaker allocation system basically similar to the 5.1 channel output of current AV systems.
