Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon        (3 of 5 found this review helpful)
  October 15, 2003

This was the first SACD I bought, and I picked it up the same time that I purchased my player. The pros that installed my multi-room home theater system that next day used parts of "DSOTM" to balance the speakers. That was 6 months ago. I'm still floored by the sound of this disc.

This disc sounds great.

This stands head and shoulders above them. The Stereo SACD format allows ... more
The Police: Every Breath You Take        (3 of 3 found this review helpful)

Too bad all their albums weren't re-released in MCH 5.1 SACD. This collection will do in the meantime. There's some fun tricks in the surrounds on quite a few songs. Stewart Copeland's drumming sounds fantastic. I wish they had increased the sound for Sting's bass, though. The regular CDs (and ... more
