SACD

OK - what the hell is Super Audio CD? Is it really much better?

I'm currently able to decode and play back HDCDs, and they do sound somewhat better than normal CDs, but I gather SACD is really where it's at? Thing is, the new Beck album is available in SACD, just as his previous several shipped as HDCDs... but I'm not really about to pay $200 for a new SACD player just to hear one album. I mean, yeah, I'll upgrade my progressive scan DVD as well as the rest of the audio gear in a few years once it's become truly obsolete, but not right now...
