No, but...
On the home page click on Index of Artists. Then click on All (far right side of the page). This gives you a full list of titles with each dvd-a title noted as such.

Oppo BDP-105 Player
Musical Paradise MP-301 MK3 Tube Amp x 3
Paradigm Studio 60 v.2 x 3 Speakers
Paradigm Studio ADP-470 v.3 x 2 Speakers
Paradigm Seismic-10 Subwoofer

1. Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon (Quadrophonic DVD-A, not officially released) -- yes, I bought the SACD, too, and this is far better to my ears, although the SACD is no slouch.
2. Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here (Quadrophonic DVD-A, not officially released) -- this, like the above, is from the original quadrophonic master tapes. Both of these were released on quadrophonic vinyl.
3. Flaming Lips: Yoshimi vs. the Pink Robots (DVD-A)
4. Jesus and Mary Chain: Psychocandy (hi-res remaster) massive difference from the original!
5. Jesus and Mary Chain: Darklands (hi-res remaster) also massive difference!
6. Flaming Lips: The Soft Bulletin (DVD-A)
7. Flaming Lips: At War with the Mystics (DVD-A)

I plan on getting the NIN and Talking Heads DVD-As....

New sh*t has come to light...

Ok, don't laugh but Michael Mcdonald "Motown" on DVD A is spectacular, nice mix but its the overall AQ to this one that really is awesome. Amazing bass, depth, clarity, soundstage and all that jazz and the slam is jawdropping.

Beatles "Love" DVD A...wicked

Ray Charles "Genius loves company"...awesome album and wonderfull DTS/DD/hi rez stereo mixes

4. Bryan Ferry - Boys and Girls
5. Billy Joel - The Stranger
6. Joe Satriani - Strange Beautiful Music
7. Elton John - Honky Chateau
8. Elton John - Tumbleweed Connection
9. Eric Clapton - Slow Hand
10. NIN - Downward Spiral

BACK TO BLU!

The last two lists are nice. The America - Homecoming is great in surround. As is the Nitty Gritty Surround, Roxy Music and Billy Joel discs. Some of these are getting hard to find.

With all of the great surround discs mentioned in this thread, I cannot believe no one has mentioned Todd Rundgren's "Liars". Was listening to this one last night, and it definitely is one of the better sounding multi-channel mixes. Lots of great catchy tunes, synthesizers, and plenty of bass!

AJA was recently released as a 180 gram LP and is a top seller on Acoustic Sounds. I have been looking around the web to see if this is going to be remixed in DVD-A. I have found no information on this issue. Anyone know if they are going to reissue it? Gaucho is a great disc and a great mix.

I was hoping the same thing re: Aja. Would be great in surround, as would all of the other Steely Dan albums. Unfortunately, I've not heard anything promised for these. Gaucho is probably my number one multi-channel release in terms of listening time.

Interesting how many mentions the Pink Floyd DSOTM gets...in the DVD Audio version. If I recall...that version is the Alan Parsons mix, and only available through torrents.

I have the SACD version, and an old SQ vinyl disc of the quad version. I do listen to the old SQ version more. Kind of wish there was a legit release of the DVD -Audio mix (or is there such a thing?).

I'm subscribing to this. Thanks to Avio for the link. I bought my first hi-rez disc - Blue Man Group's "Audio" album on DVD-A. It's great! The difference from CD to DVD-A for the ears (at least this one) is comparable to the difference of SDTV to HDTV for the eyes.

I have been collecting DVD Audio, SACD's, DTS and also Dolby 5.1 Superaudio discs for years. It is sad to see that they have all but ceased to continuewith them. IMO, nothing else touches them. Without a doubt, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots by The Flaming Lips is on top of the heap. This is because this disc may well be in a class of its own since this disc was recorded in Surround sound, not remastered, remmixed, etc. These others are personal favorites of mine:
Blood, Sweat & Tears Original Master Recording Gold Disc DSD SuperAudio CD Ultradisc (Out of print).
Boston Self titled DSD Super Audio (Classic)
Boyz II Men II DTS Digital Surround (incredible harmonies)
Credence Clearwater Revival Chronicles Hybrid MultiChannel SACD
Deep Purple Machine Head Hybrid MultiChannel SACD DSD (1 of a kind: Remastered from the Original Quadraphonic Mix!)

Super Audio
Don Henley The End of the Innocence DTS Digital Surround 24 Bit / 5.1
The Flaming Lips The Soft Bulletin 5.1 Dolby Digital DVD Audio (WOW!)
Lyle Lovett Joshua Judges Ruth DTS High Definition Surround 20 Bit

Peter Gabriel Shaking the Trees Super Audio CD DSD

No kidding - it's very sad. I have many of the titles you mention, but will look for more before they become totally unavailable. Thanks for taking the time to list them.

I looked through my approximately 100 multichannel discs and came up with the following top ten list:

SACD Bartok - Miraculous Mandarin - Naxos
DVD-A Beatles - Love
SACD Berlioz - Requiem - Telarc
DVD-A Big Phat Band - Swingin' For the Fences
SACD Cincinnati Pops - Russian Nights - Telarc
DVD-A Dvorak - Symphony No.9 - Teldec
SACD Orff - Carmina Burana - Telarc
SACD Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
SACD Turina & Debussy - Telarc
SACD Wagner - Preludes & Overtures - PentaTone

There are so many good sounding discs that I had to list a second ten. It's very difficult to separate these from the top ten.

SACD Atlanta Symphony - Rainbow Body - Telarc
DAD-A Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
SACD Brahms - Symphony No. 1 - Naxos
SACD Carpenters - Singles
SACD Cincinnati Pops - Masters and Commanders - Telarc
DVD-A Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
DVD-A Mahler - Symphony No. 2 - Teldec
SACD Nielsen - Orchestral Music - Dacapo
SACD Prokofiev - Romeo & Juliet - Telarc
SACD Shostakovich - Symphony No. 11 - LSO Live

1. I agree with you, in principle, as I can hardly keep up with the new classical releases.
2. Partial proof is that, good as they are, I would propose alternative versions of many of your choices.
3. Is the Turina/Telarc multichannel?

Are you sure that there is a MulitChannel version? I'm a huge Creedence fan, and have been keeping my eye out for any Multi-Channel versions, but all I can find are the "Hybrid SACD" versions of the albums, and the comments on these are that they are NOT multi-channel.

2. Availability and price are the main factors when I decide to purchase. Many SACD classical discs are priced well over $20 and I'm retired and living on a fixed income so I can't afford them. Almost no one in my part of the country even sells classical CD's let alone Classical SACD's, so I have to get most of them from the internet. Also if I bought a piece of music when there was only one multichannel verision available and a new and better one is released, I can't afford to buy the new one.

3. All of the Telarc SACD's I have are multichannel. The only stereo SACD's I have are three from the Albany label.

I tend to play DTS files that I store on my TVIX unit when I want hi res surround. I am partial to Pink Floyd DSOTM and Wish You Were Here. These were released in SQ quad "in the day" and I think there are torrents out there based on these. Or you can take your old SQ matrix files and monkey with them

For SACD, my absolute favorite is Beck's Sea Changes. I have owned various versions of the Mike Oldfield quads since the mid 70's...and like the SACD re-release. I wish the bass was a bit more prominent. I remember getting the whole room to shake with my AR3 and Rectilinear 5 speakers when I was a teenager.

I did not mean to criticize your choices or chide you for not having made others. My point was that there are, in fact, alternative MCH SACD versions of many of these and that is indicative of the richness of the available repertoire.

My error. The MCH SACD was made available long after the 2 channel SACD that I have and, I guess, I will have to get a new copy. Great disc.

Hey Joe: Are you related to Jimi Hendrix? No, seriously, The CCR disc that I have is definately MultiChannel, as I have indicated in my list. It may help you to know, believe it or not, that many of these discs that I have, I purchased from the Orient. About 2 years ago, I connected with this very fine seller in the Orient. I originally found him from eBay. I do alot of weird searches. I thought it was risky at first, but his feedback was exemplary. I first took a chance and bought some. I was very pleased, and many of these discs that he sells, I could not find them here in the States. His shipping time was very fast, considering the long distance. There are many others in my list that I also got from him such as Don Henley, Sammy Hager, Three Dog Night, etc. If you wish, I could provide you with this person's contact.

Hey RMCDO: Looks like you are a big Classical Music fan. Nothing wrong with that. In my limited Classical background, I have found that Telarc does about the best job with those. There is a very interesting story when they recorded the 1812 Overture. I heard they did it on a college campus. They set up actual authentic canons from the time. Supposedly, the canon shots went down to 6 or 8 Hz! They were soo powerful that they blew out most of the windows in the closest building which was approximately almost 1,000 feet away! An amazing recording, but be forwarned that if you play it too loud and your amp or speakers aren't robust enough, you could kiss them goodbye!
I find it interesting that you have the Beatles Love on your list. Seems a little out of place on your list, but I guess no worse then me having the 1812 on my list. I have that disc, and when I first listened to it (the Beatles Love) I found it to be very strange/ odd. It sounds so different then any other Beatles material I had ever heard before. Don't get me wrong. I have grown to like it more each time I listen to it. At first, I thought it was a mistake. Interesting what George Martin has done with it.

My main interest is classical, but I still like the music I listened to when I was growing up. I enjoyed the Beatles and the Beach Boys before I discovered classical music. I've also been fascinated by surround sound since I first heard it in 1970. I had a four speaker surround setup from 1970 to 2001 when I added a center channel speaker and a sub-woofer.

rmcdo: I can relate to that. I feel I was into Surround Sound before there was Surround Sound. Back in the 60's, I got into Quad 8 tracks & I had a big collection at that time (my Wollensak 8080 Quad 8 track). It also had Dolby! Now it seems like the Dark Ages. Then, in the 70's I had Quad (SQ, QS, CD-4, RM, etc.). That was the coolest thing at that time. Later, I had an ADS bucket brigade "Digital" Time Delay amp.That was also very cool at the time. Then I had a Doly Surround system (4 speakers only), later Dolby Pro Logic, and so on. Now, all of that seems like a hundred years ago.

Looks like its been a while(2007).
I am looking to buy a few SACDS and it seems these are some of the most popular:
Steely Dan - Gaucho
Diana Krall - Girl in the Other Room
Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
Pink Floyd - DSOTM
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Anyone have other suggestions that you would choose or recommend over these?

You need to listen to this album not as a compilation of the Beatles works, but as the sound track to a show. It's the background music for the Cirque de Soleil show in Las Vegas.

You've culled a good list to start with. If you like her, most of Diana Krall's albums are quite good and nicely recorded. Head to sa-cd.net to see a comprehensive list of available albums that you may want.
