Milt99,

I hope you acted instead of waiting on my response...I've noticed some are gone already (Aion, Spiritchaser, Into the Labyrinth), hope you got there in time. Seller understood recommended retail price, but not the going rate. He also refunded me $10 vs. charging me the 2.99 for each disc.

They are OOP, but some hidden stock will "show up" out of the blue from time to time. Could have been a brick and mortar who decided to move some older stock and list on Amazon, bought some stock from another store, etc. Place is called "End of an Ear" out of Austin, TX...might be a good place to seek out some hidden gems. I checked their Amazon storefront and 3 of the DCD SACDs were the only SACDs that came up.

Dan,

You can say that again! A very impressive SACD library that is growing daily. I believe Martin has been asked to leave a few SACDBA meetings due to being a bad influence.

I'm sure he's responsible for a allot of my purchases without a doubt, so a bad influence he is

Dan,

I think we all have taken our turn being the "bad influence" in this thread.

Thanks! I think I easily tripled my SACD library in the last year alone. I've been good as of late and have been enjoying the music I have on hand. But that could change at any given time.

We have a bunch of kettles calling the pot black for sure regarding "bad" influences around here.

Maybe this is the root of my problem, but stock availability for allot of the early 2000s-2009 stuff is gone or disappearing quick, even the not so popular titles. Even though it's a niche market, it's still growing with the popularity of the universal Oppo players/etc. Obviously as the demand grows, the gap between supply and demand will grow, and the end result is climbing prices...feels a bit like a "rush" to get them while you can.

My approach is look for the deals on music I know I like or is recommended with a probability I will like the material vs. searching for a specific target (good thread/folks here to help with that). This approach has allowed me to build a decent library without overpaying. Yes, I have a few titles I've heard only once, but it's good to know they are there. There are a few cases where I chose to bite the bullet (+$50, not counting SHM-SACDs), but those are <10.

I got in the Hi-Res game in 07, so luckily I picked up some of the really pricey hard to find stuff shortly before stock disappeared (i.e. Avalon, Sea Change, BJ - The Stranger, Boston, Journey, Brain Salad Surgery, Satriani, Jeff Beck, Tubular Bells, Oasis, Nicklecreek, PG - Shaking the Tree). Funny thing is price is not an indicator of sound quality (Boston, Journey, Oasis, Shaking the Tree), but more about supply and damand.

Just bought:

Stevie Ray Vaughan - Couldn't Stand the Weather JSACD.

I've been wanting to grab this one for awhile but couldn't seem to find a copy at a decent price. I wanted this version as it has extra tracks that the MOFI version does not have.

It's a good one Bill, but I like all the SRV SACDs .

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I think it's part of the disease to blame others for our addiction, this is real man just like being a sex addict


Hey I see you mentioned Oasis in your in prices not being an indicator in sound quality, I always wanted to hear What's the Story Morning Glory in sacd is that not any good? I have the standard cd since it was first released, and I thought it's to bright for lack of a better word tolerable just not pleasant to listen at high volumes.

Dan,

It's been a while since I've listened to this one, but it was a victim of the loudness wars. I just don't think you gain anything with this one and it's a shame because the performance is good. I don't recommend this one, still brighter than most and definitely not worth the going rate.

I have the MFSL 2.0 version and it's solid, but still lags slightly behind some of the other MFSL releases. The Warner JP MCH version is "in the mail" so I can't speak to it yet, but really strong reviews on the DVD-A and this MCH version (same mastering) so I expect it to be a step-up/improvement and a good alternative to the 2Ch.

I would be interested in hearing comments too on the Titanic MCH sacd too, I notice there's a so call remaster redbook for the re released film for the 100 year anniversary of the sinking that will be showing this Fri I think?. Any how this is a sound track I've been wanting for some time now.

I've had that BOC disc for a few years. I love the album--always have--but IMO the sacd isn't a great or even particularly good one.

Jeff,

I just picked this up a couple of weeks ago and I agree with paligap. It's not a reference disc by any means and the song set isn't the strongest either...BUT...Don't Fear the Reaper is awesome cranked up in surround. Considering the average at best quality, I over paid for this one, but I'm glad I have it...it's the only way to get it in true MCH.

If you don't have a strong emotional tie to the album/song, you may be better served with a good redbook.
