Tongues - Fear not the 'DualDisc'. The DVD side is bona fide DVDA AdvRes Surround&Stereo. Sounds awesome!

Violator - As many have stated, this SACD was done right. Also gave me a new reason to love my Oppo 980H: it reads the PAL DVD and converts it on the fly to NTSC. Plays seamlessly.

That is good to know! By any chance have you had a chance to compare the SACD of violator to the 24/96 DVD-Video version that Rhyno did recently? I am curious to know if there are real differences or if they are more, I don't know, invented in the mind because people think one should sound better, differences.

Fuggedaboutit! SACD sounds better. Pay the difference and you'll be glad you did.

believe me, they are hard to come by...i have two bestbuys within about an 8 mile radius, and both stores have sacd's and dvd-a's (what limited selections they do have) mixed in with redbook cd's...

that said, in the last 2-3 months i've managed to pick up

nick drake--a treasury

eric clapton--461 ocean blvd

eric clapton--slowhand

bob dylan--infidels

I think my local BB got one shipment of dvd-a/sacd, as every time I took a look at the selection, it was always fewer than the time before.
That's when I started buying online, which produced a side bonus, as that is when I first became aware of 180, 200 gram vinyl. So I started buying them too.

I'd be interested in your opinion of this disc's surround mix and fidelity when you get around to spinning it. Don't own it myself, but I've been interested in it for a while since I'm a fan of America. Just never pulled the trigger.

Thanks and enjoy!

Of course!!!!, but you're going to have a wait a while 'cause I sent one of my speakers (front one) for repair, so no MCH or stereo music for now, but I'll let you know 'cause I'm wondering the same thing myself. I noticed something though, the SACD has the same songs of the DVD "America in Concert" by the German recording company INAKUSTIK, so my guess it's the same material .
