    Hello, I'm Orville Redenbacher.....

    I just got done watching one of the most distrubing commercials I have seen in my life. Orville Redenbacher apparently never died and is now a big fan of 30 gig MP3 players. Take a look for yourself... http://www.orville.com/aboutUs.jsp Something about this just creeps me out. J

    Sony pulling out of SA-CD?

    Found this quote interesting regarding Sony's position on SACD from the follwing HFR article: http://www.highfidelityreview.com/ne...umber=17205662 Looks like the higher ups at Sony may be questioning the viability of the format as well. In tough financial times it is understandable that...

    Anyone Pick up Sting: Sacred Love today?

    Just wondering if anyone picked up this disc today and has any thoughts on the music and sonics. Also, is this disc indeed a single inventory Hybrid SACD? I noticed Circuit City has lisitings for both a regular CD and a Hybrid SACD on their website, so I have avoided ordering either out of...

    Hybrid Stones and Police discs REPLACED by CD only in the UK....

    Just read about these new releases here on the Steve Hoffman forum. Looks like the earlier Hybrid releases over in the UK are being replaced by single layer redbook discs using the DSD mastered CD layer, neglecting the Hi-res layer in new releases. Does this mean stealth marketing has been...

    The Persuasions: Sing the Beatles on SACD...very nice recording

    Last week I picked up The Persuasions Sing the Beatles on Chesky SACD on a lark after seeing it on the rack at Best Buy. The disc has left me surprisingly pleased, filled with great a cappella performances of some of the fab four's standards. My two favorite tracks on the disc were Octopus's...

    Sinatra at the Sands....my new favorite DVD-A

    Just got done spinning Sinatra at the Sands a couple times, once in stereo and once in multichannel, and I can honestly say this is my new reference DVD-A. It is hard to believe a recording so clear, pristine, and dynamic was recorded almost forty years ago. For those not familiar with this...

    Beach Boys: Pet Sounds....my new favorite DVD-A

    After listening to this disc yesterday and today, I can prodly say the wait was worth it. This disc is what Hi-res on DVD Audio is all about: Hi-res mono, stereo, and surround, and lots of bonus features. The actual mixing is quite like DSOTM on SACD, where the multi-channel improves on the...

    Coltrane...Blue Train...another faulty SACD Hybrid Cracker......

    Well it looks like Crest has struck again. After reading the thread on the Norah Jones SACD developing cracks (mine developed two by the way), I decided to check my copy of Blue Train, and surprise surprise....I found a crack on the center spindle. Thanks for the lip service Crest on fixing...

    Donald Fagen....Kamakiriad... my new favorite DVD-A!!!!

    What a great disc. I have already listened to the album three times today... twice in surround, and once in stereo, and am thinking about spinning it again.

    How is Steely Dan live?

    I am thinking about picking up a couple tickets either for their upcoming show at the Tweeter Center in Camden, NJ or at the Borgata in Atlantic City. Just wondering how their performance is in a live setting. Anyone see any of their recent shows, or for that matter, any of their live shows? J

    Norah Jones on SACD.... Excellent!!!

    Well I just received this disc today (along with Blue Train), and after listening to it once through in stereo and once in multichannel, I am left breathless. The stereo track on this SACD easily bests the CD in terms of sonics as well as dynamics. Not to sound trite, but it is like Ms. Jones is...

    Sony already giving up on SACD as a CD replacement....

    As big of a fan of SACD as I am, this news coming from Boris Loehe, Managing Director Sony Music Domestic (in Germany), and Willy Ehmann, Managing Director Sony Music international is a bit disheartening. I found this link here and translated the link using Babel Fish Translation. The...

    Review: REM Document on DVD-A

    Well I received my copy of REM Document today on DVD-A and have had a chance to listen to both the stero and multichannel tracks on this disc. First a note on the authoring. Both Group 1 and Group 2 on this disc contain the same multichannel 96/24 mix. Group 1 presents the material with...
