Hi...have you had a chance to compare the Black Market and Caravanserai SACDs with the CDs? Are they much better? Thank you.

Honestly, I never have. My Black Market CD is Japanese, as is SACD. Caravanserai CD is an early CD from Europe. Not sure where it was pressed. Probably either Japan or Austria. As usual, I bought the CD's as imports in the 80's, before they were released here on CD. Not sure that a/b'ing to those import CD's will tell you anything about how the domestic pressings sound.

It may be a while before I get a chance to a/b them. I'm mucho busy and rarely post on QQ lately. I've got a lot of a/b'ing I haven't done for my own SACD purchases. Tears Roll Down HK/Japan SACD came yesterday. I have a Columbia Record Club CD of that. If/when I get a chance to compare them, I'll post it. That may be a while. Sorry.

Hoping all the Santana Quads will be released on SACD multi.

Thank you! I recently bought the remastered CD versions of both, but will immediately buy the SACDs if it makes sense. Great music.

i don't have any other iterations of this release to compare it to; sounds great to my aging ears! i think this review does a nice job of covering the sonics:
Thanks
And another thanks for bringing that website to our attention, never heard of it before, it’s now added to my favorites list

Nilsson Schmilsson 2ch MoFi SACD #174

Fantastic music!!

a/b'ed several tracks vs. 2004 remaster CD 7 from RCA Albums Collection 17 CD box. MoFi SACD is a bit lower level. MoFi has better dynamics, depth & high end is cleaner.

My 1st copy was Q8. It and my CD-4 are my most listened to copies. Too bad SACD isn't multi....
