Anyone test the Spears and Munsil disc on a 62FD with the latest firmware, to see if the chroma problem is still there? Does it improve if you set the output to RGB?
Thanks in advance.
I picked one up for $125 w/ remote at a local best buy about a month ago and I have almost nothing bad to say about it. I find it quiet, the picture is as good as I have ever seen on my TV, and the SACD 5.1 sound quality is the best I have ever heard at home. I didn't know my speakers (NHT 2.5i's, matching center and super zeros) could sound so good. The CD performance lacks nothing either. I am very happy. The one bad thing, the remote has a very narrow angle of operation, I had to move the unit in my rack or lean way over to get it to work. I just hope it holds up.
I don't have a lot of 5.1 titles, but I have heard these on the Pioneer:
Pink Floyd-Dark Side of the Moon- a demo SACD but not one I will listen to often. Amazing effects, gets hard if you turn it up too much, at least on my system.
Bob Dylan-Blood on the Tracks- Amazing, I felt i was sitting in a circle in a living room with the musicians, the music just flowed all around me.
James Taylor-Hourglass- beautiful, especially Gaia.
Alison Krauss- New Favorite- good luck finding this one, but it is great as are the other ones from Alison Krauss, but they are not 5.1, just stereo
I have the first 4 Elton John SACD's on the way, they are supposed to be great too.
I have a bunch of 2 channel SACD's most sound great. Some stand outs are
Keb MO, The Door
Ben Webster meets Oscar Peterson
almost all of the Rolling Stones SACD's
The Best of John Denver Live
5.1 takes a while to get used to with music coming from every where, but it does make a whole new listening experience.
