Just bought:

Larry Fuller Trio - Easy Walker SACD

I've been looking for this one for quite awhile as its quite rare. It wasn't cheap but a little OT this week will help lessen the pain .

Downloaded the hi-res Physical Graffiti.
So far, I like it!
Haven't done my usual comparo to the Diament's and Marino's yet but the other comparos I did all had the same result.
While not a revelation, I like the 24/96s the best.
BTW, this site www.livedownloads.com has them for a great price ~$18.00.
Their download "manager" is a kludge at least for me so I downloaded them manually.

 

It ain't ignorance causes so much trouble; it's folks knowing so much that ain't so

Thanks for the info. What is the difference between the deluxe edition and remaster for Physical Graffiti? I assume these 96/24 recording/mixes are considered the "best" releases for this album as far as sound quality goes?

The Deluxe Edition has additional tracks.
Both are remastered in 24/96.
For more details on the tracks, check out hdtracks.

Just downloaded from NativeDSD the Multichannel DSD64 Steinmeyer Organ in Nidaros Cathedral played by Magne H. Draagen. If you enjoy the low rumble of pipes accompanied by those airy trumpet pipes, highly recommended.

Do you know if it's shipping from somewhere in NA? I ordered mine via Amazon.ca and it looks like it's coming from across the pond, I may not see it for awhile. I should get the SACD I ordered by Wednesday though, that'll keep me happy till the Steve Wilson disc arrives

Midnight Blue seems to get lots of kudos. Glad you're jumping in with both feet in regards to purchasing, we tend to grab people by the arms when we leap off the buying ledge, it's no fun jumping alone...

George Benson is 'out for delivery' so hope I have something to listen to when I get home.

Best of Bread: quick impression. "In the band" mix (big plus for me, heads up to others). Seems to have nice dynamic range. Looking forward to more time listening to it.

Best of Bread is great Imo. Only listened to the 2 channel so far. It's a Steve Hoffman mix and he is a great 2 channel man and this disk shows it!

This SACD arrived yesterday and the SQ is outstanding ! A classic jazz trio with Larry Fuller on piano, Ray Brown on bass and Jeff Hamilton on drums. From the moment the first song started playing I knew this was going to be a great listen. I have the volume cranked and the SQ just gets better with the piano sounding like its in the room. The bass and the drums are also very lifelike with that in the room feel. This is an excellent recording that I would assume would also be great on CD as well.

My SACD of George Benson's Breezin' arrived Tuesday, spent the last 2 evenings listening a bit. Just excellent, really like the 5.1. Very crankable! Listened to the (assume) Hoffman stereo mix but I prefer the MC. Perhaps I'm one of those who is starting to change after all these years, I seem to like the MC mixes on most of the shiny discs these days.
Thanks to those here for the Breezin' recommendation, I knew I came to the right place

I have only listened to the Grant Green so far. What a great recording. If I was blindfolded I would swear that Grant was standing in my room playing live!
