Haha! You can still pick up the DM non-SACD DVDs here quite easily in places like HMV for about 20 quid.FYI - You readily get CD/DVD combos (no SACD) of the DM titles new if you are not a cat repellent bigot.....
One of my favorite albums of all time, but a disappointing mix. I bought it in a CUT OUT BIN at Virgin Megastore in NYC, so I'd say there were more than a few made.Actually, I must just qualify my last post, as I had recently noticed one or two of the DM SACDs are still available from Amazon UK.
"Music for the Masses" seems to be one that is readily available. I wonder if that's a less popular title?
Surprising as it was a successful album back in the day.
it is miles easier to just plonk the SACDs of these in, plus the 5.1 mix on my copy of "Speak and Spell" would only playback the core DTS and not 24/96, as it said on the cover.. not an issue now as I gave it away!Yeah, a couple are still easy to get new from Amazon (A Broken Frame is the other), and a few are only £15-£20 used.
I already have the DVD version of "Black Celebration" so I don't think I'll fork out for the SACD, but all things being equal I do prefer the ease of sticking the disc in the player and hitting "play" to get my multichannel fix.
Plus, it's lossless, and the collector in me wants them all in the original SACD pressings.
Also, I don't have a dog or a cat, and my fish don't seem over sensitive to DSD!
I've hung onto Music for the Masses as I'm quite nostalgic about that era of DM but I agree, I don't remember it being up to much last time I played it in 5.1.One of my favorite albums of all time, but a disappointing mix.
