The only other HKs I have are Enigma (good) and Diana Krall’s Wallflower (so-so IMO).
I’ve heard parts of the Culture Club one, it’s very good.
The Cranberries seems to get mixed reviews. How is the Tears For Fears?

I have the Tears For Fears. Its not good - its very shrill or 'hot'.

I've been pleased with HK SACD's over all.

Tears for Fears sounded OK to me. Admittedly, I haven't a/b'ed the tracks to my CD, the Seeds box, or the BD's. Nor have I had a chance to a/b the SACD's to CD's. Have been meaning to do that...

I also bought these HK SACD's:
Ultimate Manilow
Diana Ross
Always in My Heart - Los Indios Tabajaras
Belafonte at Carnegie 2ch 1 disc abbreviated
Best of Folk Songs

Linda, first and foremost A MOST HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and Joe. Hopefully, you have the exquisite Analogue Production THREE CHANNEL SACD remaster of Belafonte at Carnegie Hall, COMPLETE remastered @ Sterling Sound from the original Living Stereo analogue masters which I'm currently spinning

Harry Belafonte - Belafonte At Carnegie Hall

BTW, another stunning Universal Hong Kong Stereo SACD which I recently acquired. Performance/sonics: FIRST RATE!

La Luna (Hybrid-SACD) [Import]



hey Ralphie
this album was previously available in SACD 5.1 . I dont own it. It goes for mega bucks on the used market in this day and age. Been on the fence about getting this version, but seeing as it has the Ralph endorsement, looks like Ill be cracking open the wallet once again. thanks

According to the comments over at HRAudio.net, the multi~CH SACD [going for BIG bucks] was NO BIG DEAL in the surround department. Rest assured, this IS the version to get, Ricky!
