JA,

The Kind of Blue MOFI SACD arrived a few weeks ago. I've only had a chance to listen to it once and it sounds very nice. No time to compare it to the JSACD. When I do have the time I'll post my thoughts on how the two SACDs compare.

Just bought:

Miles Davis - Sorcerer MOFI SACD

Bill

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

Emotiva XMC-1, Rogue Audio Perseus Magnum, Wyred 4 Sound SX-500s, ST-500, ST-250, Oppo BDP-105D, Panasonic TC-P60GT50 plasma, Panamax 5100EX, Salk 1801-TLs, Salk 1801b center, ADS 300C (surrounds) and two Rythmik F12SEs.

Got AF's The Best Of The Doors and America - Homecoming on SACD a few days ago, both great purchases, thanks to all for the recommendations! Trimmed my subs ever so slightly for Homecoming, bass seemed just a bit boomy on a couple of songs at around 90db. Haven't listened to the stereo tracks of either yet, looking forward to that...

Roger Waters-Amused To Death Blu ray

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

IMO, the stereo layer of the Doors SACD is the real star of the show. The quad mix is more like a nice bonus. Your in for a real treat...

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Received today on blu ray: Roger Waters - Amused To Death and the HFPA of Marvin Gaye - Let's Get It On. Just played the Marvin Gaye disc so far, stunningly good! Great range, cymbals and brass sound so clear, and the bass is tight. Exceptionally quiet between the notes, just the way I like it Listening in DTS-HD Master 5.1 at about 85-90db. The MC separation is not too heavy in the surrounds (and I generally like heavy surround use) but seems just right for this music. This is one of those discs I've heard people describe as "having the band in the room with you". Way above my expectations.

Hey, me too! I found this one at a local store for cheap last year, I couldn't believe how good the audio/video were for a 1993 concert. A real gem for the money
