Of course there is also DVDABA (DVD-A Buyers Anonymous), BRBA (Blu Ray Buyers Anonymous) and HDTBA (HD Tracks Buyers Anonymous). Plenty of help out there if anyone wants it wink.gif.

Bill

If there were dues to SACDBA I'd ask for a refund! It's not working (and I could use the dues towards my next SACD).

Keb' Mo' "Just Like You" arrived today. This is up there in "Avalon" and "Sea Change" territory. Very enjoyable mix and MCH.

I wasn't thrilled the first time I heard this artist, but maybe I should give Keb Mo one Mo chance.

I was a fan before SACD. Worth a second listen!

Steve,

What about the added reverb wink.gif? I agree that it is an excellent 5.1 SACD. I'm glad you are enjoying it smile.gif.

Steve,

I would definitely give the Just Like You SACD another spin if you have it. I find it to be a nice style of laidback blues and very interesting song writing.

I've been thinking about this one for a while, so today I went ahead and bought The Doobie Brothers "The Captain and Me". WB Japan MCH release.

I finally got around to listening to the New Patricia Barber, Smash. I really liked it. It is classic PB, female jazz vocalist with an edge. The only part I didn't like was the title cut, Smash. It goes into an almost classic rock lead guitar jam, but even at that it may be appropriate as she was singing, 'this is the sound of a heart breaking'. On the other hand I loved the next cut, Red Shift. She sings of the curved trajectories of Einstein and the uncertainty of Heisenberg. Cool song. The recording quality as with all her work I thought was outstanding.

I also had a chance to listen to her new MFSL release, A Distortion of Love...the same cardboard case as the newer MFSL releases (with an actual book)...the same impeccable AQ quality as well. Enjoyed the listen, and sounds like I need to download her latest as well. Thanks for the solid post/recommendation!.

I've been waiting for mine to show up in the mail now. I thought satuday, but no joy. Maybe today.

Quick Q: I received the Time Out SACD and I cannot tell if this disc is a multi-channel or not. Online it shows it is, but the back cover lists Hybrid Stereo. I'm assuming this is just an error and it is truly MCH?

I have that same disc. Oppo shows the output as SACD PCM 5.0. Definitely surround. Enjoy!

Perfect, thanks for the quick confirmation! smile.gif

Is it 5 channel or 3 (L, C, R)? The Oppo will show 5.0/5.1 even if it's a 3 channel (That's what my 95 does). I have several of the AP releases (Nat King Cole) and the majority of the AP MCH stuff I have is a 3.0 config so just curious.

Just some FYI... "For the Multichannel program of this SACD, we used the same hi-res file as was used for the previous Sony SACD release of this title. The Multichannel program was not remixed or remastered. Please understand that our focus and interest is on making the best sounding two-channel layer possible. We have remastered the stereo program from the original analog tapes. Because the disc allows space to include a multichannel program and because one already existed, we decided to include it as a bonus."

I'll have to check it out when I get home.

I could definitely be 3.0. I'll have to listen again this evening when I get home.

Confirmed 5.0 at home...surround primarily "ambiance" but it's there.

Martin,

I just did this as well and it is 5.0. The surrounds are strictly ambiance as I had to crank up my left surround to make sure. I do not have the APO SACD but this one although I believe the 5.0 mix is the same.

Just bought:

Rickie Lee Jones Pirates MOFI SACD

I do not have any music from RLJ and this one looked like a good title to start with smile.gif.

Long time fan of RLJ. Let me know how this one sounds. All my RLJ is on vinyl or RB.
post #6859 of 9847
I am surprised that her self titled album is not out on SACD yet........I like all of her albums but tend to like her self titled album best. I see MOFI has it being released on vinyl again in the coming weeks but I don't see anything about an SACD issue.

I'll definitely let you know what I think once the SACD arrives. The description of the album and those on it are discussed in this listing from Music Direct. It looks like an excellent grouping of musicians and producers.

Spent some time tonight listening to this disc in both 5.0 and stereo. I definitely like the AP remastered stereo better than the surround mix (which they were not responsible for). The stereo mix is actually much cleaner and the soundstage is much more stable with instruments staying put where they belong. Very little tape hiss for a recording as old as me. And yes, I was born the year that Time Out was released - You do the math wink.gif
post #6862 of 9847
I was also born in the year Time Out was recorded.

I have the Columbia SACD. Multi-channel hybrid. One of my favourites, despite the cost. It appears to me to be 3.0 which is consistent with the three microphone recording methos used then.

I prefer the three channel to the stereo.

I don't hear any ambience from the rear channels - it may be there but I don't hear it.

I was a year old when Time Out was recorded eek.gif.

Good to know that a few of us here were born in the 50's. albeit late, late 50's. Wonder how this demographic compares to the other forums on AVS...

With age comes money and it follows that those of us that are trying to keep up with Bill Mac are rich.smile.gif

I was three. You know I think my dad actually had this on vinyl in the early 60s.
post #6867 of 9847
My dad certainly had this, but it was probably on a 78rpm, right?

No I'm pretty sure it was a 33 and 1/3 standard LP. I remember the fancy cover art, that's all.

Hey Steve

Let us know what you think of this one, I've been eyeing this one for some time now.

Thanks
