    I'm relatively new to hi-res music and am looking for recommendations for online retailers who carry a good selection of SACDs at reasonable prices. Where do you people shop?

    Circuit City has been dropping prices in their "Popular Music" SACD section online. I have yet to find a classical deal there, but a lot of stuff has dropped from $19.99 to $13.99, including Jorma Kaukonen and Amanda Marshall. As Rachael mentioned, shipping is currently free.

    I was hoping for a similar deal on the Alison Krauss "Live" disc, but it costs more online ($24.98) than it does at the one C.C. store I've seen it locally ($20.99).

    Thanks for the input Rachael and David. I've already ordered a few discs from Acoustic Sounds (great customer service) and will check out the CC deals today. I appreciate your help!

    On new releases, www.cduniverse.com has some pretty good deals. I just got the SACD release of Tommy for $21.95 plus $3.99 shipping. Amazon sometimes have some good deals, as well, espacially if you qualify for the over $25 free shipping.

    If you mean Music Direct out of Chicago, then their site is actually http://www.amusicdirect.com

    I recommend them highly for SACD.

    Thanks for the tip on CC too. I never thought to check there but I just ordered Beck's Sea Change and Freewheelin' Bob Dylan for a collective 27.00!
