    The Norah Jones SACD is absolutely amazing. I honestly
    am not a big fan, I bought it for my wife who owns the
    regular CD, and it's by far our favorite. This SACD
    really shows what is possible with SACD with the right
    production.

    I guess the best part is that my wife is convinced that
    all the time and money we spent on the HT was well worth
    it. WAF = 100% Thanks Norah!

    These two SACD's are getting the most play for me right now:

    Stan Getz - Getz/Gilberto

    E. Power Biggs - Bach: The Four Great Toccatas & Fugues/Chorale Preludes/Fantasy

    Of course DSOTM is also a fav as well as many others but right now these two are getting air time. The great thing about the Bigss disc is that it was orginally recorded in quadraphonic (sp?) so it translates nicely to multichannel SACD.

    Laters,
    Jeff

    Rainbow Body by Telarc is in heavy rotation in my system right now. A great performance of Copland. [​IMG]

    I just picked up Bucky Pizzarelli's "Swing Live", "4 Generations of Miles" (various) and Albert King/Stevie Ray Vaughn "In Session". All three sound pretty dang good to me on first listen.

    BTW, I picked up the Albert King/Stevie Ray Vaughn "In Session" disc at BB of all places![​IMG]

    My personal favorite at the moment(granted I only have 3 discs so far) is Steely Dan's Gaucho. I've listened to the redbook CD more times than I can count but I'm still amazed at how insanely good the SACD sounds. Truly night and day difference.
    DSOTM is awesome as well and Every Breath You Take:The Classics is a nice improvement over the redbook version. All hyrbid discs too which are generally the only kind I'll buy.

    Mahler, 6th Symphony from Telarc. in every aspect reference quality. Plus, you get a free bonus CD, in which the conductor explains the work in comprehendable terms.

    May I be the first (I think) to recommend Mary-Chapin Carpenter's TIME*SEX*LOVE*? This disc caused me to upgrade my center channel speaker!

    I have been digging the new SACD from the Suitcase Pimps.

    It's called "Love is Grand"

    I think the only place you can get it is on cdbaby as it appears to be an independant release. Nonetheless it sounds incredible and the musicianship is stellar. Reminds me of a modern rock Pink Floyd. Check it out.

    Also diggin the Albert King SRV SACD....I don't need to tell you the guitar playing is [email protected]

    Alison Krauss + Union Station "Live" would be near the top of my list as well as Nora Jones and Diana Krall. Suzy Q by CCR might be my favorite rock song on SACD, it is so good I find it difficult to believe a near 40 year old recording could sound so good. Plus several Jazz and classical disks.

    I do want to hear Telar's new Beethoven's 9th SACD.

    Surprised noone has mentioned Duke Ellington: Blues in Orbit.

    Great music, incredible sound quality.

    Alas, I may wind up selling/trading it since the value for this hybrid has risen to the point where it's too hard to pass up.
