Performance:   Sonics:
Sony hits a homerun with a great disc of the beloved 1975 broadway show "A Chorus Line". Highlighted by one of the best known ballads in "What I Did For Love", this whole disc is a treasure for those who appreciate the theatrical experience.

In multi-channel, this disc does a great job of re-creating the theater experience. The rear channels are used very subtly to just fill the room in a way that stereo can not do. The Sonics are simply stunning, one of Sony's best. The center channel is extemely active throughout and the vocals are top notch. Excellent detail. The last track, "One/Finale" is by far the most active multi-channel track, where every channel gets a workout.

Performance:   Sonics:
Although the fidelity of this disc is excellent, if you own the dvd, you will notice that "what I consider to be the best performance and song "we did it in the graveyard" is missing.

I will also make comparison to the West Side Story sacd, the dialogue is totally unbelievable from an accent perspective and effectivly ruins the experience.

I own the dvd's of both these films and find the experience much superior to the sacd offerings. It's a shame too because the sonics are excellent.
