Hi, Had it on vinyl and used it as panty remover when it first came out. I was never a big fan of cd's and Ship Ahoy never seemed tobe available except on special order here in Toronto (I bought the record in Mtl). Anyway, now I have it mltich and love it. Too bad more folks haven't been ... more
Marvin Gaye: Let's Get It On        (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
  November 3, 2003

Hi, Unfortuneately the quality of sound in this release is not nearly as good as "Minight Love" and Neither are as crisp as the recent DVD-A "Marvin Gaye Collection" release. "Lets Get It On" seems a lazy effort. It's almost like the tape was on one end and an sacd machine was at the other and you ... more

Hi, With the advent of the new HIREZ formats I've become a Jazz neophite. Fortunately the music shop here in Toronto L'Atellier Grigorian has people who know music so at least I get some enlightened opinions. One of the staff is a jazz drummer and has ben guiding me to the "must have's" for my Jazz ... more

Hi, I've had the DTS version of ths disc since sometime in 2000 and it's great, the sacd will be an interesting comparison because I wonder if there going to use exactly the same mix or redo it from scatch. Peter m.

When I did and threw it in the machine was amazed to hear sound coming out of all speakers. I took the disc out of the machine and sure ... more

SACD Enthusiasts...Are There Enough Of Us?
August 26, 2003
Hi, I also feel that it's way to early in the game to worry about these HIREZ formats. I would bet that within 2 years every dvd player that comes out will be as universal as dd and dts are today. And STEREOPHILE magazine will change its name. The people I feel for are the 2ch and analog audiophiles because they Will capitulate and when they do ... more

Hi, Do you have a reciever that allows you to apply DSPmodes like dplII to you analog outs or are you speaking of a hybrid disc that has a 16/44 layer and thats what your applying DPLII to? If thats what your doing you may want to check and see if your dvd/sacd player has a feature that some dvd-a/dvd players have called re-master which will ... more

SACD Enthusiasts...Are There Enough Of Us?

Hi, If it wasn't for Home Theatre and the requisite 6 speakers dvd-a or sacd would never have seen the light of day. HIREZ mltich music has to piggyback on equipment that folks with an HT already have (save a special dvd player or two and an interest in music) When we sit down to watch a movie, we use all the same equipment, and it has our ... more
