    Default SACD Overdose

    I do not know if it is the new MIT balanced interconnects, or it took my Sony XA5400ES SACD player a year to burn-in, but the darn thing sounds really good now. Unfortunately, this has caused me to have gone on a SACD binge, and I have been buying anything on SACD.

    Recently, I received three SACDS by the Mandelring Quartett of Shostakovich’s string quartets. This is volume 2, 3, and 4. Volumes 1 and 5 are still waiting to be shipped by Amazon.

    Highly recommended. I love Shostakovich when he deals with strings. His symphonies are not that good in my mind.

    Anyway, today I came home, and these SACDs were on the front porch.

    Tierney Sutton, Dancing In The Dark.
    Diana Krall, The Girl In The Other Room
    Various artists, Jazz At The Pawnshop
    Arabella Steinbacher, Bella Bartok – Two Violin Concertos
    Salvatore Accardo, 3 Violin Concertos of Giuseppe Tartini
    Sir Colin Davis, Symphonie Fantastique
    Elton John, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
    Elton John, Tumbleweed Connection
    Elton John, Elton John
    Eric Clapton, Slowhand

    This should keep me busy for a few days. ;)

    Give Peter Gabriel's "SO" SACD a listen. Absolutely amazing sounding!

    Good timing. I just took it out. This SACD was $79, and even though I dislike jazz, I bought it because the reviews said it was an absolutely great SACD. And it is. The recording is great, and all the instruments sound great. But it is still jazz. :)

    I could only take a few 'songs' before I pulled it out. So, there is a good possibility it might be up for 'borrowing' in the near future. ;)

    Well I was half joking.

    To make it more of two-way exchange, I'd let you borrow a superbly recorded SACD from IsoMike, which is the record label that Ray Kimber is involved with ala Kimber cables. It's a string quartet playing Haydn's Op. 9, No. 4 and Op. 77, No. 2. The strings sound so realistic, you're gonna **** your pants when you hear it. No kidding.
