I know this will not be a popular view, but after listening to it I have to say I am a bit underwhelmed... It is mainly because the FR channel seems to sound a bit distant and hollow at times. Particularly on Samba Pa Ti the guitar solo sounds quite distant, similar issue with the RF percussion on the Incident in Neshabur.
I really dislike a heavy handed production when it comes to reverb. One that has always been irksome for me in that respect has been "The Divine Miss M."With all the trickery that had been created in the last years it may be possible to "dry up" the reverb present on some tracks.
Anyway, it is so: the sacd is just the best transposition of the original quad mix,
Yes and also listing “The Red Planet” DVD combo; which there’s no evidence yet, that they were even ever contracted as a seller!You have to wonder if Import CDs does not stop taking orders when the known quantity in their shipment is exceeded. Or maybe they don't receive the entire quantity that they were expecting. Or maybe they believe that they can obtain more copies. I do not know their MO, but it may be best to order immediately when they announce the title on their website.
Whoa. I made a 3 title order from them on 10/28 (It was Santana ST, Abraxas and R.E.M. Out of Time). They took all my money and the ST and R.E.M. got shipped right away. Abraxas got shipped the next week when it released (Can't play it for now because I found out my BR player can't play SACD like I thought). It's really weird that my copy got shipped before yours because I ordered after you.
