    Micahel, I saw this earlier this evening. It's great to see SACD and DVD-Audio getting consideration here.

    If they are making nominations based on imaginative surround mixes, that Dishwalla dvd-audio won't win--I can barely hear some ambience stuff squeezing from the rears, much less actual instruments.
    But the disc as a whole-sound quality, menu system, extras, etc.-is very well done. It even has easter eggs! [​IMG]

    Keith, Agreed. I'm glad to see AIX get so many nominations as Mark really puts his heart and soul into their releases and are some of my very favorite DVD-A's. The amount of content on the discs make them some of the best "bang for the buck" going.

    Can't argue with some of those.

    But am I the only one who absolutely adores Tacet's classical DVD-As? Very aggressive sound mixes and beautiful sound, at least to my ears. I never see any mention of them at all.

    Mike, Where are you purchasing the Tacet titles from? I've heard very good comments on their stuff and even though I'm not real big on classical I'd like to get a copy of "Bach: 6 Complete Brandenburg Concertos".

    Micahel, I really need to order that "free" AIX DVD-Audio sampler (really $6.95). I keep hearing great things about Mark Waldrep's work.

    Keith, Forget ordering the sampler. Just break down and order the "Nitty Gritty Surround" title. I guarantee you won't be disappointed as I know you like Alison Krauss. In addition, when you order, they'll throw the sampler in for nada.
