    I am still very new to sacd but have 4 titles. They are pretty good but I am still looking for some reference quality titles that will really show off what sacd has to offer. Any help? I'm going to take Keith's advice and pick up The Sopranos soundtrack.

    In addition you can add:

    Anything on the Audioquest label. My suggestion would be the "Blues Sampler".

    The Mcoy Tyner, Stanley Clarke and Al Foster title on Telarc is pure DSD and very good.

    The "Stir it Up" by Monty Alexander, also pure DSD is very good (he plays jazz rendetions with a reggae flair of classic Bob Marley tunes).

    Two new discs I just picked up that are very good sonically are:

    Alison Krauss "Now That I Found You" on Rounder sounds great.

    Mary Chapin Carpenter "time*sex*love*" on Sony is one of Sony's better discs.

    Also check out James Taylor "Hourglass" - another stellar Sony SACD effort.
