    96/24 would mean it is not DSD and/or SACD?

    Correct, it’s not an SACD.

    And to think there's a 5.1 remix of this album that Sony commissioned, ready to go, but no approval from estate of MJ (yet).....

    My Oppo 103 plays SACDs, but with such a crappy DAC should I even bother?

    If the 103 sounds pretty good with red book CDs, you should be able the hear a reasonable improvement from SACDs. I haven't heard the 103; but even my Oppo DV980h revealed the superiority of SACDs and DVD-As. Just be sure to start with one that has been favorably reviewed in this thread. The recording is more important Than the format.

    Yeah it sounds crappy on Redbooks. The recording is key. Your old Oppo was only 170 clams? I'm wonder that many of the titles avail on SACD were decent recordings to begin with?

    Check this. A tad overpriced.. https://www.ebay.com/itm/SACD-Insan...=item4b599feec4:g:BTcAAOSwwTFcJpvc:rk:14:pf:0

    Havent had the opportunity to do any critical listening yet but first test run it sounds as expected, pretty damn good. And i love the cover, not just a typical jewel case.
