I second the good sq on machine head. I wouldn't pay $70 for it, but I'm a cheap bastard. I didn't even get Wish You Were Here sacd until the price came down to $33- and even then I thought it was overpriced. Seriously, if they can put out deluxe editions of KC, ELP, etc. like SW does, 3 disc sets with all kinds of extras for less than $20- the Skynyrd 3 disc set was only $12!- then why are some so high? I understand why oop cost so much- totally supply and demand driven, but some of these new releases are ridiculous, esp. the boxsets where you can't get just the mch disc, but have to pay an exorbitant amount and purchase crap you don't want (the marbles in the immersion set must have been a joke, because they figured anyone paying full pop for that set must have lost theirs...)
Rant off.. MH is a great disc, w/ some cool extras besides the cool 5.1 mix, sq is great, so if that's worth $70 to you, go for it.
