I got to the mailbox today and to my surprise the Elusive Disc shipment of Alison Krauss and Union Station's "New Favorite" made it to my doorstep so I immediately put it in the player. The WOW factor on this one is off the charts. Absolutely flawless multichannel sound. I'm in the middle of listening to track 4 as we speak and I can already say that this SACD sounds far better on my system than any of my other SACD's. (I only have 10 so far, so take that with a grain of salt). Alison's voice sounds fantastic...the music is far more upbeat than her solo SACD release, the multichannel mix is not distracting at all, very active but not overpowering. Fantastic, awesome, highly recommended. It's releases of this quality that make me realize all the money most of us throw at this hobby is not wasted one bit. I will enjoy this release for months and it's hybrid so I can bring it in my car as well. Well done Rounder!!! I have not listened to the Redbook layer yet, so I cannot compare, but this SACD layer is stunning. I truly cannot believe my system can sound this good. WOW!!! Run, don't walk, to get this release if you have an SACD player and like Alison's stuff!!!!
