How have you got on Bill?

Only thing I could find for this was the 180 gram vinyl over at acousticsounds.

Would be nice to see as SACD or lossless download.

Yes I founds a couple mention on the 180 gr as well @ SHF sounds like very limited run on these! Will post my finding once it lands on my door steps, it's coming all the way from Hong Kong so it's going to be a few weeks.

Hi wse,

I agree, both 'Songs From The Big Chair' and 'Legend - 30th Anniversary Edition' are great sounding HFPA disc. I'm especially impressed with the Bob Marley disc. It's audio production and packaging is excellent. Much better than the original HFPA disc

Dan-

No Dirac yet for me, although I spent a full day at a local GTG demoing Dirac. I'm excited to try it at home.
