There are a number of reasons, not least of which is that the medium is under marketed. The only people I know (excepting members here) who are aware of SACD are those I have personally informed of it. Then there are those folks who (the majority) just don't think music is worth further investment. They paid big buck for their PCM based Stereo and don't want to contemplate further expenditures.
Among those who might be persuaded to invest further in a music system, are many who are influenced by nay-sayers who speak with enormous authority, and who were there from the first disseminating misinformation - such as that fool Petrus in a new thread today - to which GROOT GULIUD has responded with intelligence and real information.
Wait however, see what Petrus will come up with to continue his foolish uninformed rant. We have at least 2 others that post similar nonsense on a fairly regular basis. I would like to wet Mr Wetmore for instance, with a fire hose sometimes!
With "friends" like these who needs enemies?
