It would seem that MovieMars has one SACD in stock again

I am 1000% with you on surround mixes. I even went so for as to install 120 degree monopole surround speakers identical to my LCR. THese are in addition to the full-blown 7.1 surround array with Tripoles. The rear surrounds are inactive with 5.1 content and I MANUALLY swap the side surround dipoles for the 120 degree monopoles at the wallplates for "in the band" content. To really make this all ideal, I have different Audyssey calibrations I load depending on the content I am using.

Steve Wilson-Hand Cannot Erase[Blu ray]

If a movie or concert video or a TV show isn't on blu ray it darn well should be.

This has become one of my recent favorites as well. I've also got the America release on the way. Hopefully it will be just as good.

Gave it a full run-through on the weekend (indicates very high praise as, at present, I have little enough time to listen to a song without distraction, let alone an album, but I made time for this one). The America release is not MCH, so I am reluctant to go ahead and order it (I might go with the hi-res download, as it was considerably less expensive last I checked). I'd have pre-ordered it, though, if it had a MCH mix.

So in theory would the out of print Black Sabbath CD-Japan SACD's be on par with the 96/24 files on HDTracks?
