Keith, I'm thinking about picking these titles up and I'm certainly concerned about spindle cracks. But what is the worst case scenario with them, has there been known cases of players being damaged? I'm still using a 555 and as we know, they can no longer be replaced.
The newly re-mastered Quah is worth tracking down too. You get a couple of outstanding acoustic extras. My brother & I enjoyed a local show a couple months ago and he recommends checking out some Rev Gary Davis.
Whoa! Was just listening in the car after picking it up @BB. Very rangy. Something tells me this is the new reference sacd and after one listen you'll see your gear as 'stud' or 'scud'. Yea, that's the ticket, the mother of all sacd's :eek:.
The Synchronicity SACD sounds good. At least as good as my memory of the original vinyl (no longer have a TT). I tried the remasterd Ghost CD which was a waste, I'd like to try the SACD if it sounds good. I too passed on the Classics hybrid as I have DTS CD which i think is very good.
The new batch of Police discs don't make sense to me. I like my DTS of the classics but wanted hybrids of albums for portability. I gave a new Redbook cd of Ghost in the Machine a spin but didn't think much of it. So I walk away unhappy.
Sorry to resurrect an old thread but the biggest player in the world of music (Universal) looks to be put on the block. http://www.marketwatch.com/news/yhoo...12AD155 3F%7D We'd better hope a Mr. Potter doesn't start scooping up all the plots in Bedford Falls. The US gov might bring...
I was just in a Borders by me and found all the re-masters and the hybrid-EBYT, no SACD onlys. Picked up Ghost ($9.99) but sadly, it lacks top end. Listened in my car, plenty of bass but the rest is muffled.
I've only a few non DVD-A DTS discs vs about 25 DVD-A so I can't speak too much about a quality difference, if there is one. My DTS are probably good ones sonics wise (Gaucho/Police/7th Sojourn/Venus & Mars). Just moving on to more hi-rez titles by going DVD-A should be worth it though. There...
Thanks Phil, the past year has been musically active for me and along the way picked both of those great disks up. Lucinda is great though... I picked up Car Wheels several months ago and have spun it many times. Definitely want more of her music on my shelf.
I picked it up and listened to the 5.1 last night. Great stuff with a nice sound & mix. The $25 is high these days for a good hi-rez. I got some revenge by plucking a Lucinda Williams 'Sweet Old World' from the $9 bin :emoji_thumbsup:.
Great story Rachael. On a recent visit to the Lincoln Center NYC Tower, I found the Walk--Don't Run: Best of from 90'. As my arms were full by the time I got to the 'V' section, I remember sacrificing a SACD so my wallet could handle the Ventures. In retrospect, it was a great decision.
