    The Doors • L.A. Woman.........SACD

    Which Sony is that P-man and how do you like SACD thru it?

    DVP-NC555ES
    Just arrived in yesterday’s mail. That was the 1st SACD I played. Really haven’t had a chance to do any critical listening yet. I was looking for a changer for SACD and the price was right at $100 shipped. I bought it from a guy on Audiokarma

    Listing to Gentle Giant 'Three Piece Suite' blu-ray.
    This is a must get for GG fans or if one is looking to start w/ GG.
    In fact, all of the Steven Wilson GG remixes are must have.

    Nice pickup!

    Interesting feature:
    You can select a digital filter to reduce noise above 22.05 kHz (for sources with a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz), 24 kHz (for sources with a sampling frequency of 48 kHz), or 48 kHz (for sources with a sampling frequency above 96 kHz). The Audio Filter can be set to Sharp or Slow. Sharp provides a wide frequency range and spatial feeling. Slow provides smooth and warm sound.

    I'm playing w/ the front 5.1 outs with "bass management" on my new to me 2000ES.

    Ace Frehley-Spaceman
    Greta Van Fleet-Anthem Of The Peaceful Army

    Listened to both of these and giving the Ace a second spin while I'm waiting for the Missus to get ready so we can go to the Pheasants Forever Dinner. I'm liking The new Ace the new Greta Van Flert not so much, liked the EP of theirs better.

    Electric Light Orchestra / Out of the Blue.

    I can remember when the single for "Turn To Stone" from that album was released. My mother was bringing me and two of my older brothers Christmas shopping one night and it came on the car radio.

    When the song got to the operatic vocal middle part, one of them said "Oh, this has just got to be Queen" and the other agreed. I said "No, it's not" (but I couldn't remember who it was as it was just recently released). :p They laughed at me because I was 3 and 6 years younger than them. They weren't laughing later when we got home and I played the 7" single by ELO I had just bought. B)

    Micah, if you like ELO, I strongly recommend getting "ELO's Greatest Hits". There are only 11 songs on it, but every one is really good in my opinion, and it should be pretty easy to find on vinyl for a reasonable price. :)

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    I have that on DVD as well. I pull it out and melt into it a few times a year on a weekend. The last show Layne Staley did IIRC . you could tell he was in a fog on stage.
