    I picked up the Alison Krauss + Union Station Live SACD set today and am wondering if the discs will develop spindle cracks. Has anyone observed cracks with these discs? I've read about many Crest hybrids cracking, but not this one.

    By the way, the SACD layers sound wonderful (stereo).

    I've had this set for quite sometime and listened to it often. Just checked my discs and neither one is showing signs of cracks.

    Couldn't agree with you more about the sound, really top notch.

    Lin, thanks for sharing your experience. I hope I have similar luck. Some people have reported cracking with other Krauss SACDs, but my copies are fine. I've had her other three SACDs for months.

    I just bought this the other day (haven't listened to it yet) and see no cracks.

    Mike, thanks. While some people have claimed to see cracks in Crest hybrids immediately upon unwrapping the case, it often appears that it takes time after purchase for the cracks to develop. My three hybrids that cracked were perfect when purchased. The cracks developed over the next three or four weeks.
