I have a copy collecting dust since I mainly spin the SACD and MoFi. PM me if interested.

Is that the live performance on Blu-ray? I have one of those, but have never watched it.

SMD,

The Alchemy SHM-SACD has been OOP for quite awhile. I was lucky to find a mint copy for around $55.

Jeff,

Yes they are one in the same. Of course I just had to have the SHM-SACD. But the Blu-ray is really the best deal as it has a lower price and a DTS-HD 5.1 mix.

My SACD collection, watch it grow and my wallet shrink ;-).

 

Denon 4311 (in preamp mode), Parasound 2100, Boston Acoustics A7200 amp, Oppo BDP-103, Consonance CD120, Panasonic TC-P60GT50 plasma, Panamax 5100EX, Salk Song Towers, Song Center, ADS 300C (surrounds) and two Rythmik F12SEs.

Yep, that's it. I purchased it September 17, 2010 for $19.37. It's $25 and change on Amazon now.

It's one of the titles being re-released at CDJapan...

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Steely Dan "Countdown To Ecstasy" and Donald Fagen "The Nightfly" arrived from Japan last night.

As others have said here:
  • The Nightfly is truly magnificent, in both stereo and multi-channel. It is my sort of music.
  • Countdown to Ecstasy is stereo only, is a bright recording and quite light in bass
Nightfly would be close to 5 stars, but CTE would be perhaps 3 stars.



CTE might well be how they intended it, but it feels like it is lacking something to really get going and to engage you. I haven't tried the CD layer yet (if there is on).

I agree that the Nightfly SACD and DVD-A are excellent especially the 5.1 mix. As far as your thoughts on the Countdown to Ecstasy SHM-SACD have you compared it to any other CD versions? The CtE SHM-SACD does not have a CD layer. All SHM-SACDs as far as I know are single layer discs with no CD layers.
