I can honestly say I never imagined I'd be posting this but...are there any hi-res country stuff out there?

Older remasters are better like Hank Sr and the like.

Must be a CD/SACD mix, or a DVD with DTS/DD tracks.

Turning someone onto hires so they'll demo it here but we're buying it for them so they can take it home so it'll have to play on a regular CD/DVD player also.

I know not all SACD's are playable in a regular CD player.

Thanks

There's not a lot, but here's what you can find at sa-cd.net

There is no "Hank Sr".

There's just Hank and Hank Jr.

Also, there's no "the like". Posted Image

There are some great Alison Krauss and Union Station SACDs if you include bluegrass. I think George Strait, Nickel Creek, Dolly Parton (several) and others are out there.

www.sa-cd.net is a good place to look. Posted Image

LOL, Henry Gale.

PaulDA's SA-CD.net link is excellent.

And like Lee said, if you broaden to bluegrass there's other goodness including the DVD-A of Bela Fleck's The Bluegrass Sessions. I (still!) haven't spent enough time with my copy, but I understand the John McEuen, Jimmy Ibbotson, Jennifer Warnes album Nitty Gritty Surround is supposed to be an excellent, innovative DVD-A from AIX Records.

Since it's the Holiday season, the DTS CD of Vince Gill's awesome Breath Of Heaven deserves a mention, too.
