I've had that for some time Bill Mac - quite like it actually. It gets repeat plays, and whole album plays which is a good test.

I have the London Symphony Orchestra SACD box set containing all the symphonies. How would those performances compare? SACD vs Blu-ray? etc.
Thanks

As you know, LSO is grossly over recorded. This has led to a bounty of mediocrity.

That said, I have not heard their Box of the nine. Based on this question, I just ordered it.

Here are reviews of each from the same source.

hope this helps!

I just noticed on the LSO offering, the symphonies are not in order.... for physical expediency no doubt, not for artistic correctness.
The Rattle offering is the same.

I recently bought Philip Glass, The Symphonies. I was very pleased to see that the symphonies were keep in order in spite of this requiring extra discs. (the user review is mine BTW) This is another excellent collection from the baton of Dennis Russell Davies.

You won't be disappointed with this one! I'm in a surround mood today and the Legend Blu-ray is up next after The Yes Album DVD-A. Rainy days in Maine aren't so bad after all !

Great idea! I've been meaning to play the Carpenters SHM-SACD. I've read a few posts from those that bought it recently saying how great the SQ is.

I have that one. It is spectacular. esp. the Khachaturian. That said, at the least this one is a reissue. I have had it for a couple of years now.



I have to add that I am a huge fan of the Pentatone label in general. They have a fantastic "stable" of artists and turn out consistently good recordings of good performances.

Display: Panasonic P60UT50 (Plasma)
Speakers: (4) Monitor Audio Silver 9i (Front and Surround), (1) Monitor Audio Silver 12i (Center), (4) Monitor Audio Silver 4i (Rear and Wide), (2) Aperion Audio Bravus II 8d (Subwoofers)
Receiver: Pioneer Elite SC-87 AVR (9.2)
Sources: Oppo BDP-103, Roku 3, Cable...

I just picked up for 75 cents at Hastings going out of business sale:

DVD-Audio -- Silverline Classics -- Stereo and Surround Advanced Resolution

I don't know if it's any good but I couldn't resist it for the price.
