    You will discover that even as we speak new classical SACD's are released; most of these are new recordings.
    Regarding point 2, it’s not elegantly worded, but I read the quoted language to mean you won’t get additional benefits playing a redbook disc on an SACD player (assuming the non-SACD player and SACD player offer similar quality for redbook).

    One idea's to invest on a multiformat player. Oppo comes to mind. You can find one used at a reasonable prices. The big boys from Denon are built like proverbial tanks and have a huge depreciation, so you might get a bargain if you shop around.

    My SACD player (Onkyo C-S5VL) offers a choice of five different PCM-filters for cd-playback.

    1) linear phase soft-knee filter
    2) minimum phase soft-knee filter
    3) linear phase brick wall filter
    4) minimum phase anti-alias apodising filter
    5) linear phase apodising filter

    Filter three corresponds with standard cd-playback.
    Filter two is said to sound a lot like Ayre cd-players; whereas filter 4 sounds more like a Meridian.

    Filter 4 is favourite of reviewers; because of it's smooth, almost vinyl like, sound.

    I played around with these filters a bit, when I just had my player, and settled on filter 4 for cd-listening.
