Nine Inch Nails: The Downward Spiral        (10 of 10 found this review helpful)
  December 13, 2004

This album is a natural for multichannel, and I knew that Trent would impress with the MC mix. The only question in my mind was whether the hi-rez could improve the digital nature of the recording. As one of the the reviewers from amazon.com points out, doubters need only listen to the bass drum on ... more
Los Angeles Guitar Quartet: Guitar Heroes          (5 of 5 found this review helpful)
  December 12, 2004

When I heard that the 4.0 surround mix of this sacd had a guitarist in each speaker, I envisioned some missing scene from a Robert Rodriguez film where 4 mariachis meet at the cross-roads and the listener is caught in the cross-fire. Thankfully, this sacd is not like that, and there is very little ... more
Vince Guaraldi Trio: A Charlie Brown Christmas        (1 of 1 found this review helpful)

I second everything the previous reviewer wrote. All I can add is that the presence of the instruments is so good, if you close your eyes you just might see Snoopy doing his dance in the middle of the room.
Keane: Hopes and Fears        (12 of 12 found this review helpful)
  December 12, 2004

I was dubious as to whether this sacd would be worth the extra money, as the Universal website showed a low bit rate for the DVDa, which I assumed would mean a low bit rate PCM master. My initial impression on the stereo sacd confirmed my doubt. However, one listen to the multichannel layer and I ... more
Bob Marley: Young Mystic        (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
  July 22, 2004

Have to agree with everything the previous reviewer said. However, while the bass certainly stands out on this disc, I don't think there's a dedicated .1 channel direct to the sub. My sub is only connected to the LFE channel from my receiver and I don't get any sub on this disc. That's probably a ... more

Who says my main motivation is profit? If I knew I could sell one of my discs that I don't really like to fund a purchase of something that I would, e.g., O'Jay's Ships Ahoy, I would gladly do so. And while I appreciate dandfaz's post, AFAIK, completed listings are only available to power sellers. If you don't want to contribute to this post, ... more

Right, prices on amazon are just the same as a starting bid or buy it now on ebay...the only real indications of value are actual bids. It's just too time consuming to track them all, which is the reason for my post. ... more

No, I just like to know the value of my collection and am always curious as to which discs have accrued value and which have not. If there's a disc out there that I have and am not that fond of that is going for big $, I'd happily part with it. ... more
