- An SACD player that reproduces SACD discs in addition to standard CDs. An SACD hybrid disc has two layers, with the CD layer located beneath the SACD layer. The SACD layer is transparent to a CD laser, thus can be played in a standard CD player, while a SACD player does not pick up the CD layer, providing for mutual compatibility. Also called hybrid SACD.
