Screw Dual Discs - you can get the SACD in Canada - BIA hands down!


Get the Stereo release of Fragile Ultradisc Gold CD by Mobile Fidelity (just out). Not surround but supposedly very very good mix.

I have the DVDA - OK surround mix but very harsh high end. Probably OOP soon so if you want the surround version, pick it up anyways.


Like Paperboy2003 below, I have both and would get BIA.

Well... looks like you were right! I just got an e-mail saying they no longer have it.



So... now the choice changes



Porcupine Tree - Deadwing DVD-A or Dire Straits - BIA SACD


Or maybe Foreigner - 4?

Still BIA



Deadwing is very good (personally I like In Absentia better). Don't have 4 but was never a really big Foreigner fan.


You will find that more and more DVDA are going OOP so if you 'think' you might like one you see and it is available - buy it.

Paul,

I've read elsewhere that the surround mix sounds harsh.


What about the 2 channel section?

To be honest I almost never listen to the stereo tracks on MC discs, so cannot comment on the stereo section. Have to assume the same EQ though. I'm away from home right now or I'd pop it in the player.


I'll probably pick up the MoFi Gold CD reissue for the stereo version.

I found a copy of BIA SACD at my local Best Buy last Saturday... it was never there before.


$22. Excellent surround mix.

My local BB has three copies sitting there.

O course, Warners DVD-A's are expensive up here in Canada. Fragile is actually one of the cheaper ones at $25.99.

Same store has The Nightfly and both Foreigners. Maybe I should just hold my breath and pay....
