    Not surprised by the move. It's nice to see SACD adoption 10 years after its peak.

    Not the band's best work. An odd choice by Audio Fidelity.

    The Sony SACD is said to be a straight flat transfer of the original 2-track master tape. I don't see how MoFi can top it without EQ'ing it. A great album, not a great sounding album.

    Not in all sources, particularly HDMI. With HDMI, the 805 will still pass the HD video to the monitor, play in 5.1 and black out the front panel display.

    I have the 805 with RTi8s. Give it plenty of shelf space above it. The receiver runs hot most of the time.
