I heard a friends copy of the cd and thought it was okay. This was way before sacd came on the market. The same friend gave me a copy of the sacd and I was hooked. This really is a great multichannel disc. The sound is perfect and the music is brilliant. I can see the comparisons being made with ... more

This really is a classic album and now that I have heard it, a classic sacd. The multichannel version of this album is brilliant and sounds way beyond its 34 years. I think some of the reviewers were a bit harsh with the voice distortion. I don't think that there are many recordings made in 1971 ... more
Elton John: Honky Chateau        (1 of 3 found this review helpful)

Of the seven Elton John SACD's, this is one of the best. The sound quality is superb considering the recordings were made over 30 years ago. I would recommend all seven Elton John sacd's to anyone new to this format. The quality of the recordings is impecable and worth spending the money to update ... more

One word, magnificent. I have heard a lot of SACD multichannel mixes lately and the 'Elton John' eries is the best by far. The sound is crisp and clear even though the recordings are thirty years old. Greg PENNY is a genious when it comes to 5.1 sound mixes. If he can do this to the analog ... more

You have got to be kidding with this one. Why did you bother with sacd technology, to rip us off or what. Listen to the 'Elton John' sacd's (which were done thirty years ago) and find out what sacd technology is all about. Don't waste your money. Worse than the cd version

SACD will not play through the optical connections. You have to connect your surround receiver with the 6 annalog cables. DVD audio is the same. DVD Audio will play on most DVD players and if the SACD player has a DVD option. In this case unless it is a DVD Audio player aswell, it will play through the optical connection just like normal DVD's. ... more

DualDisc killing SACD?
March 18, 2005
I hope you are right. I have all three formats, sacd, dvd-audio and I just bought a dualdisc. For mine, the sacd, leave them all for dead for sound quality with the multichannel layer. Why sacd was produced with stereo only amazes me. It is no better than cd quality and is not worth the money. There is so much good music out there and the sacd ... more
