    Elliot Scheiner really is a surround legend isn't he!? I can't think of one 5.1 mix of his that disappoints. (maybe one or two tracks on his Layla mix I prefer on the first SACD instead but off the top of my head that's about it..!!)

    That's why I bought my copy from Amazon UK a couple of years back.
    It came packaged in a standard 2 CD jewel box.

    Tricky thing about that SACD is there is also a redbook edition with same upc. So unless the listing says so, chances are it is the redbook edition. Definitely the most wanted surround disc for me at this point. There are very few remaining in the wish list so I started collecting blu ray movies/concerts now...

    Haven't actually received it yet but purchased Leonard Slatkin ~ Gershwin: An American in Paris: Catfish Row; Promenade; etc. [Hybrid SACD] from Secondspin.com. How is this in surround?

    A pity, the bonus coming with the deluxe edition to download the lossless FLACs is not available anymore. Website just says: "We’re sorry but this promotion has now expired". The voucher is from 2010, so it is that old :-(

    Tell me about it! I was dreading the CD turning up, especially as it was the lowest price I'd seen it in years of searching.

    With other ambiguous discs that have shared UPCs, like the Sam Cooke at the Copa SACD, I made totally sure it was the surround version by buying from a 5.1 only seller!

    Clarification: I was referring to the Sam Cooke titles on Abkco. Any Abkco title that was released on SACD will be exactly that in a paper sleeve, and a standard CD in a jewel box. Other Sam Cooke titles will be CD's, if they're in a paper sleeve. Sam Cooke SACD's on Analogue Productions will be in jewel boxes.

    Nektar is on Dream Nebula, so as Fred mentioned, the opposite is true.

    No, Night Beat on AP is 3ch.

    There are several 2ch SACD's:

    Portrait of a Legend (Best of) Abkco
    Ain't That Good News
    Keep Movin' On
    Tribute to the Lady (Billie Holiday) is an EU only pressing, not available in the US. No doubt Abkco legal funny business.
    Best of Sam Cooke AP (alt take of Another Saturday Night)

    a shame but still, that's quite a healthy number of SACD's.
    Perhaps those original albums are only recorded on 4 track or something and don't readily lend themselves to a multichannel mix.

    ah well, better to have had one than none at all and at least that Copa one is so lovely!

    Tangerine Dream - Rubycon (SACD)

    Have been keeping an eye on Amazon marketplace for this as there was no way I was spending £80 for a copy.

    Was very pleased therefore to spot that someone had put one up for £18! Grabbed it and now the price back up where it was before.

    Good job I didn't pay £80 since I didint realise it was stereo only... :-(

    it may "only" be stereo but that's a great bargain! nice one!

    proves my point to the guys on here who've given up ever getting things like the Ship Ahoy SACD now for sensible money.. never give up hope! these are tough times and folks are reluctantly having to dispose of all sorts of stuff, sadly.

    you know you could probably flog this one on again and make a good few quid right away if you're not happy with it tho..!?

    My latest DVD quad purchase, a couple of months ago, was the Pink Floyd "Dark Side Of The Moon" Immersion boxed set. It contained a DVD audio-only disc with the 5.1 Surround mixes(which is like listening to fake, reprocessed stereo, for comparison) and 2 resolutions of the original quad mix that was only available on Q8 tapes in the U.S. and SQ'd LP's in the rest of the world. It's refreshing to hear the discrete quad DSOTM without the accompanying tape hiss or matrixed LP quad. I hadn't planned on buying it, because it was priced high, but, shopping Amazon one day, I happenned on the Immersion set, brand new, for $62.99. I couldn't pass that one up. Now it's ove $100.! I am very pleased!

    that's an excellent deal! nice one!

    how are you finding playing with the marbles? minutes of fun, ah..

    the scarf's rather fetching too isn't it! i hear badly printed black nylon's just the thing this season.

    hehe.. all those big boxed sets last year had something of the bizarre about them didn't they!?

    happily they had some decent surround music inside to redeem themselves..!
