Russian Violin Concertos - Fischer/Kreizberg          (0 of 3 found this review helpful)
  March 5, 2012

I am quite happy with the performance especially the Prokofiev. The Glazunov is the weakest one and lacks a bit of passion. My main problem is the audio quality which everybody rates as 5 stars. I had this recording for a while and listened to it on a few high end system and the same problem is ... more
Bach: Cello Suites - Martin Ostertag        (2 of 5 found this review helpful)
  August 26, 2011

Just got this SACD a few days ago and I was more than pleasantly surprised. The first impression is that Martin Ostertag makes this music very enjoyable to listen to, one is not tempted to only play a few tracks, I just let it run. In comparison Pierre Fournier playing sounds more academic. Nobody ... more
Canteloube: Chants d'Auvergne - Veronique Gens        (6 of 6 found this review helpful)
  August 20, 2011

I have quite a few interpretations of these charming songs, including Von Stade, Davrath , and Dame Kiri, the big plus is that Veronique Gens is French speaking and you can hear that her Auvergne accent sound genuine. Some of the others singers to be honest do not sound the part, even if their ... more

And lets not talk about anything else than classical music. If you are a modern jazz lover SACD is a non starter. My tastes are varied I buy the music first, if the SACD is ... more

Unfortunately I love music too much to restrict myself to SACD's or Hi-Rez downloads, so much great music is just not available in these formats. You remind me of a friends that just bought a big hidef television and that will only watch Bluray movies (never mind the content) And btw the recording in question did not get many good reviews, mostly ... more

Is Oppo High end!!
June 8, 2013
The answer I am looking for is the Oppo as good as the so called high end players like Esoteric, DCS, Accuphase, Playback Design etc. Features required are purely for a stereo set up and money should not be taken into consideration. Maybe my question should have been does Oppo makes High End SACD players irrelevant ... more
