Well, pretty much not.
SACD has more tracks available and an SACD will play each of those tracks to the corresponding audio location (speaker).
Like when you watch Saving Private Ryan for example. The guns being shot at you are in the tracks that correspond to the front mains, and the sound of them hitting the surfaces (wood, metal, sand, flesh, etc) are laid down in the tracks that correspond to the rear surrounds. A plane passing overhead begins loudly and then quickly diminishes in volume in the fronts, while almost simultaneously begins softly and increases quickly (in volume) in the rears to give the audible effect of the plane moving which is what you are seeing visually!
Because in the recording studio, they lay down all of the audio on various tracks. So, in 5.1, you have 6 different tracks to put the info on. The effect of the steps then, would have the audio info laid down on various tracks to give the feeling of live movement. And, since this was originally done in quad (4 tracks) it was not hard to remaster it in 5.1, using the greater imagination that the world has gained with the passage of time!
You can however play a CD with a regular player, or even an MP3 player for that matter, while connected to a receiver that does multiple channel (5.1, 7.1, 9.1 ) "enhancement", but it will not sound at all like what the engineers had intended, as the receiver is just guessing at it's remix and is fixed at a certain algorithm.

180G vinyl or reel to reel is the ONLY way to listen to Pink Floyd at home. SACDs and DVDAs are for the car --blu ray PureAudio is rather....meh. There's just no real need for it yet --the DACs in even the reference players haven't gotten to the point that it's worth 300% more than 96/24 content.

Ha! An "MP3 remaster"...talk about an oxymoron. Oh how far the music sound quality has fallen. And nobody seems to care. I say bring on the SACD and Blu-ray audio discs!

I picked this album up on 180g LP reprint about a year ago when I started listening to records again. There are passages you just won't hear on the MP3s of Pink Floyd.

|Buster_Bluth||Thanks. I had a bunch of hashish just sitting around not being used, so this can go well with that.|

No...., I think 5.1 (five channels + a sub-woofer for LFE) is purely physiological.
Ya big dummy!!

Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon has been on the charts for an astounding 1,285 weeks. That's just under 25 years!
Reached 1500 weeks.
