I just sold a Marantz VC-6001 that was totally reliable and sounded great with SACD's, so changers were available at one time. Other than a Yamaha CD changer, nothing is made today. If the OP insists...

All things being equal, hi-rez should easily trump vinyl. In real life, that's not the case. There are still too many instances where vinyl sounds better thanks to much better mastering.

He wasn't talking about SFTBC exclusively. It was about a number of unspecified HFPA's. The BD doesn't have Dolby? Or it doesn't work on yours? IMO, they should have spent their money on 5.1 for more...

Hopefully I can add something that may help. I've been watching the reviews and there is no middle about Shout. Some people find it terrible. The complaints over at QQ are calling the vocals...

Interesting. You may way want to contact Oppo about this. It may be something that can be corrected in the next FW update.

One thing I forgot to mention. Sometimes a player reset helps when clearing the PS. The only time the PS fix doesn't work is when there are authoring problems with the disc. Not surprising since we...

Bill

Clean out the Persistent Storage and shut off Deep Color and BD-Live on the Oppo. Bitstream should work then. :)

Thanks for the tip. I always loved the MFSL. The bass is absolutely earth shattering. I know about the MFSL smiley face EQ that the flat earthers have fits about, but I never cared. OTOH, it can't...

Thanks for your impressions. I just read some reviews at SHF and they're all over the place, like usual. Agreed about the vinyl. It was always audiophile quality with good solid bass. I have the US...

It will probably be a lot cheaper than it was back then. IIRC, I sold my copy for $80.

quadrophonicquad.com is a great site for reviews. They also have polls where people rate releases. Also check out SA-CD.net. Most releases will have some reviews as well as purchasing options.

I'd love to hear some impressions of COTC. The only reviews I've seen so far mention it's very bass heavy.

Actually, I was wondering if the DVD-A was defective. Since you have the BD, it's just a bum mix. :(

I've been critical about his earlier stuff, notably the earlier Crimson stuff. The Yes and...

Do you have the BD or the DVD-A?

I think the mix on Shout does settle down after a while, because at times it doesn't sound bad. Unfortunately, by that time, my ears are bleeding. I listened...
