    Hi all! Just got the 47Ai, and am quite happy with it. DVD-A sounds outstanding. SACD was quite ugly until I enabled multichannel output for it in the menu (geez).

    The only SACD I have is Alice In Chains' hits, which I understand is possibly not the best SACD to reference to? Any suggestions for a more suitable one?

    Well I like the James Taylor SACD's. They sound real nice.

    Stevie Ray Vaughn and Alison Krauss would be good to start with. I would pick up Metallica, Queensryche Empire, and The Corrs In Blue DVD audio disc's. Rachael B listens to a lot of SACD and would be good person to get recommendations from

    Ron, you didn't say what genres you like, but along with the excellent suggestions made already, here are some of my favorites, both musically and sonically:

    * Rebecca Pidgeon The Raven
    * An Introduction to SACD (Chesky stereo SACD sampler)
    * Chris Botti Night Sessions
    * Keb' Mo' The Door
    * The Isley Brothers 3 + 3 (older recording, but sounds great)
    * The O'Jays Ship Ahoy (older recording, but sounds great)
    * Rolling Stones Hot Rocks 1964-1971 (recent remaster; sounds wonderful for older recordings)
