    I'm really impressed with how quickly Acoustic Sounds processes and ships their orders! They also know how to package things so that they arrive in mint condition. Very pleased with their service!

    they are only about 60 miles from me, but they are mail order only.
    those Japanese imports are really special SACD's..the Wishbone Ash Argus is tops.

    Think you may enjoy Avalon. let me know how you like it. P.s.

    Think "The Doors" SACD is worth it as I have it and their Greatest hits on SACD! plus "The Doors/The Doors" 45 rpm Vinyl is to awesome! I have all 3 :# (need help)

    Avalon was good! I will need several more listens to it though before I can really form an opinion. Audio quality was great! I think I liked the second half of the album more than the first.

    Overall, a nice listening experience. A bit short though at only 37min playtime.

    My best SACD purchase so far is Brothers in Arms (Japanese) by Dire Straits. Sound quality is amazing. If you're even a marginal fan, I'd recommend this one.
    Living Room (HT):Denon AVR X-3000 ; LSiM 703 ; LSiM 704C ; FXi4s ; Sub – Rhythmik F12SE

    2 Channel Studio: Marantz PM8004 Integrated ; Marantz SA8004 ; Music Hall MMF 7.3TT w/Ortofon Bronze; Schiit Bifrost DAC ; Ascend Acoustics Sierra 2s ; Rythmik F12SE

    My wife recommended that album! I will buy it eventually, it's a bit pricey at $60 like Avalon was.

    My SACD order from Acoustic Sounds shipped today.

    Let it be known that they get their orders shipped out quickly, happy about that.

    My Acoustic Sounds order just arrived today. A sampler disc, Allman Bros. Brothers and Sisters, Abraxas and LA Woman. Last disc was the only Doors album with a bass player, who happens to be the father of two of my high school buddies. Mind boggling when you realize he played / plays with just one finger.

    I knew they used a bass player for LA Woman, but didn't know anything about him. Crazy!

    Have you played the disc yet? The Doors were my first love when I was a kid. I've been hesitant to plop down $30 for any of their SACD's though, I wasn't sure how much the music would benefit.

    Totally worth the $$. I'd give this one a 9.5 on a 10 scale. I'm hearing things I've never heard before, and I know every note of this album by heart.
    Sounds like Jim is in the room, and each instrument is clear and distinct.
    Title track up next, but so far this one is a keeper!

    I finally ordered this, well actually the DVD-A. Can't wait to give it a listen!
    Pro-ject 2 Experience SB, OPPO BDP-103, Marantz SR5011, Lounge LCR MKIII, B&K Ref 2220, AMC 2100, Polk LSiM705, Polk LSiM706C, Polk RM8, Polk PSW450
