@weekendtoy, turn it up to 11. Then put on Songs For Beginners and turn that up to 11. These two albums, IMO, are some best produced and mixed(!) 5.1 albums I have ever heard. And Nash’s mastery of songwriting has always been tops across every group and solo effort he’s put forth.

I plan on spinning both discs back to back when I get Songs for Survivors. I previously got Song for Beginners at a good (new) price from a discussion here at AVS and agreed...song writing, production, and surround mix are all top notch.

JA,

Yes I did buy a Marantz SA-10. Excellent sounding CD/SACD player that betters the Oppo 205 for stereo disc playback. I'm listening to Patricia Barber's Companion MFSL SACD as I type. The SQ of this SACD is incredible to begin with but the SA-10 takes it to the next level and beyond (Buzz Lightyear reference :D). The Ayre DX-5 is an excellent player as well!

Excellent Bill Mac


Keep the threads in which you participate updated on massaging your SA-10 into your system. I hope to complete my system by year's end.:D

We both own an extensive library of SACD titles and I want to read about your top picks.


What other gear and cabling is in your system currently?

Found these two at the local used record store. Already own them in different forms (T. Rex on SACD and Clapton on blu-ray) but couldn't resist. Condition is VG+ for Clapton and just good for T. Rex.

Bloody hell... This sort of thing does not happen in any second-hand record store near me :mad:

Just got lucky, hehe. :cool: I've been there several times before and never saw a DVD-A/DTS CD before. SACDs are a complete pain to find though as they don't separate them into a surround music section and the cases are standard jewel case sized so hard to scan the racks for them (and they have a fairly large used CD section).

JA,

Will do! With the great weather up here in Maine I haven't been playing much music. But once the fall and winter settle in it'll be time to really crank the tunes!

I have quite a few favorite SACD titles both in stereo and in surround. I'll take some time in the future to put a list together. I've been trying to find the time to put together a list of the concerts I've gone to in the last 45+ years. That will be a test of the old depleted memory ;).

Most of my gear is listed in my signature. A combination of various decent cables with most from Signal Cable and some other mid level cable companies. Not a true believer in $1k interconnects and $3k power cables. Most of the Signal Cable (ICs, PCs and speaker cables) have been bought used. I like their cables as they offer great build quality and sound at an affordable cost.

Thank You! Bill Mac


I did not know if Marantz voiced the SA-10 Reference player with a certain brand of Cabling? :)

No problem, my pleasure! If Marantz voiced the SA-10 for specific cables I'm not aware of what they suggest. I'm quite happy with the Signal Cable Analog Two XLR cables that I'm using :).

I got a whole box full of Signalcable analog cables from the 'olden' days when everything was hooked up analog.

That's the kind of stuff you never get rid of. Never know when they will be pressed into service again. Plus looking at their website, it looks like prices have really gone up.

Would love your review on this as I have her Bachelor No 2 disc and was thinking about this one.
