    What are we supposed to do about Crest National SACDs???

    I am frustrated. I have now found that more of my Crest National made SACDs are cracked. First it was DSOTM - which I was able to return and get a Japanese made copy. But today I found 3 Doors Down "Away from the Sun" and Shaggy "Lucky Day", as well as my previously reported Ray Brown...

    Queen "The Game" - DVD-A at Best Buy

    Well unexpectedly I found Queen's "The Game" on DVD-A at the Best Buy in East Hanover, NJ. I was under the assumption that this disc's release date was 4/29 (which it still might be). It seems though that Best Buy has this item in their ad for DVD-A discs that are on-sale this week and "The...

    AL24 Plus Processing and the Denon 3800

    I have been looking at possibly upgrading my Technics DVD-A10, but have been turned off by the lack of the ability to select groups with most DVD-Audio players on the market without the use of a TV monitor. I looked at the Pioneer 45A and 47Ai (found alot of things I did not like). I am now...

    Question on the Pioneer DVD-A players - 47Ai and 45A

    I am considering "upgrading" from the Technics DVD-A10 to a newer DVD-Audio player. I went to a local home-theater/stereo store where they had the two Pioneer players, 45A and 47Ai, as well as the Integra 9.3. I got to play around with all three players, but couldn't make an informed...

    Oasis "(What's The Story) Morning Glory" - some comments

    I posted this on another board - but I will post it here also for those interested: Whoops!!!! Sony messed up on this one. This is one clunker of an SACD. They take a very murky, muddled, compressed and overdriven mix and transfer it to DSD/SACD and voila! - you get a very murky, muddled...

    Elvis Presley 30 #1 Hits on DVD-A, PART 2!!

    Ok I listened to the disc and fooled with it a bit - and I have come up with some revelations that I would not expect. But first let me say that as Shawn C points out in my first thread - there are no menus on this disc, but if you have a DVD-Audio player you can navigate the disc by choosing...

    Elvis Presley 30 #1 Hits on DVD-Audio - a rant...

    I posted this on another board, but feel like posting it here also to see how others feel: Ok - so I breakdown and purchase the Elvis Presley DVD-Audio disc - 30 #1 Hits (not really being a big Elvis fan to begin with) - but hey it was on sale for $15.98 at it is a slow week for new releases...

    New Crimson release - "Ladies of the Road" - a question?

    I just picked this King Crimson CD "Ladies Of the Road" - which is a brick and mortar distributed Special Edition King Crimson Collectors Club release 2 disc set. It is basically live cuts taken from 1971 - 1972 and includes 9 cuts on disc 1, and a very long version of 21st Century Schiziod...

    Sam Goody now carries SACD!!!

    I know that there was an announcement that Musicland was planning on carrying SACD - well the announcement was true (not that there was any debating it wouldn't be). I was in the Sam Goody in Parsippany, NJ yesterday and the CD racks were full of SACD discs. It seemed that they had at least...

    I may have bought my last Silverline DVD-Audio disc!!!!

    With the major influx of new DVD-Audio titles on the Silverline label, there were a few I wanted to try. Being a big reggae music lover I picked up the Dennis Brown DVD-A and the Wailing Souls DVD-A. In addition, I "wasted" my money on the Lynyrd Skynyrd "Then and Now" release. All of these...

    Queen DVD-Audio "Night at the Opera" is encoded with DTS-ES!

    I got the Queen DVD-Audio disc and was sampling the DVD-Audio 5.1 track as well as the 96/24 PCM stereo track, when I decided to see how the DTS track sounded. Much to my amazement my Sony DA5ES indicated that the DTS bitstream was encoded as 3/3 or 6.1. Even though encoded with DTS-ES, it...

    Question on impedance switches and the Sony DA5ES?

    I have a question on the Sony DA5ES and the impedance switch on the rear. The impedance switch is a 4ohm - 8ohm selectable switch, where if you have any speakers lower than 8ohm you are to set the switch to 4ohm. I have all 6 main speakers (fronts, center, surround and back surround) rated...

    Onkyo 696 vs Sony DA5ES - a comparison!

    I was very interested in possibly purchasing a Sony DA5ES because it has 2 multi-channel inputs which I could use for my MCH SACD player and my DVD-Audio player. I currently own an Integra 6.2 and have to switch cables to hear either in surround sound. So today I went to a local hi-fi shop...

    Still looking for realiable feedback/review on Sony DA5ES

    Awhile back there was a thread regarding the Sony DA5ES, and I posted in that thread a question regarding any reliable reviews/feedback on the receiver - but no one seemed to respond as it was a pretty full thread by the time I posted. I currently have an Integra 6.2, and both a DVD-Audio...
