Love this multi channel album. White's guitar playing is very cruzy, the backing muisc is wonderful as is the 5.1 mix. Top marks from me. This one is up there with the best in my collection. Yep, a cd layer would be nice - but it was labelled as mc only.

Well, bully for you. I have a Rega Saturn cdp. It doesn't upsample and I've listened to quite a few that do. The Saturn run rings (pun intended) around every cdp I heard, including the upsamplers. I suggest you go out and listen to a few quality cdp's regarless of upsampling abilities. Back to the Oppo, I recently sold my Marantz Dv-9600 and now ... more
Why SACD will (sadly) die very shortly (probably)
December 16, 2009
Yes, it says SACD may as well be dead. Although a long time fan I have given up on them - sure if I ever see one I fancy I'll buy it. None of the stores near us stock them any more. And to be honest 6,183 titles in over 10 years shows just how SACD is failing - it's quite pitiful really. The other thing - a few of you on this forum should read ... more
