Which is one of the things that leads me to believe this has been brickwalled to make it louder.Scottmoose said:Loathsome. But only to my ears. Most other people seem to love it. Fair enough. Buy if you like her. If you don't, run for the hills, bacuase the treble energy will take your head off, especially that from the rear channels, interestingly enough.
Can somebody please post a scan of this SACD? I think I may have been defrauded.
The packaging says sacd MC with all the right logos, but the disc is just a CD and looks like a cheap duplication, not a pressing.
It is gold on the underside. The spine of the cd case does say CM0993.
The OPPO BDP-103 hasn't had any problems yet. That, and the fact that the disc has a compact disc logo and the printing looks homespun has me thinking the seller got duped maybe.One of the issues that I have had, and occurs with some discs, and with some Universal players is an inability to see the SACD 2.0, 5.1 or both layers on a SACD/CD Hybrid, I've Elvis Costello's "North" which will only find the CD layer most of the time, sometimes the SACD Stereo and occasionally the 5.1.

The seller is too big to be trying to pull a fast one. I think maybe somebody got rid of the packaging with a burned disc, keeping the SACD or something.
Can you think of any SACDs that are incorrectly printed with the CD logo?
The printing has the same look as duplication I have purchased, for an inde album.As far as I know, it wouldn't be Gold on the Underside if it was a burned disc (usually dark-blue/green), but I wonder if its a stamped counterfeit CD then, without the SACD layer? Does the printing come off the disc easily?
