I can't believe I forgot Pink Floyd - Dark Side!!

I haven't found Yes - Fragile in our local Circuit City yet. The selection of DVD-A sucks there. There is a Best Buy about an hour from me, they seem to have a much larger selection.

The best DVD-A sound that I've heard was, I believe, the first album produced in DVD-Audio - Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band - Swinging for the Fences. I love big band stuff but even if you don't, you'll appreciate the amazing energy and musicianship. They also did a second album that isn't quite as good as the first but very nice.


There seems to be so much more available in SACD that I'm planning to add a second DVD player, this one with SACD. (My primary is a Kenwood 400 disk changer which has DVD-A.)

Circuit City seems to only stock one of a title, and even then only the bigger name artists. Best Buy has a much larger selection, but Circuit City tends to run about $2 cheaper pricewise.


As for Fleetwood Mac Rumors, I love the album, but I was unimpressed with the surround mix on the dvd-a.

All the ones mentioned are great...and I'll add one more:

Richard Thompson - Rumor And Sigh


I need to upgrade my DVD player so I can take advantage of SACD, looks like I'm missing a lot of HI-RES music with just a DVD-A player.
