What is the greatest SACD out there? Finally have my system all hooked up and calibrated. I am now looking for a killer demo CD.

Reblux, I just picked up the Dianna Krall DVD-A 'Love Scenes' and was very impressed, the SACD should be equally as good.

I've heard that Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon' SACD is killer.

DSOTM is the way to go if you are looking for one as a demo. Put on the beginning of time and the clocks are just all around you.

I think Diana Krall's SACDs are the best mixed and mastered I've heard. If you can stand old standards done in a jazzy style, go with her "When I Look In Your Eyes". If you want something a little more modern and hipper, try her "The Girl In The Other Room." You can sample some of the songs on these SACDs at the linked web site. Be sure to check around to see if you can find better prices.

I think Krall's appeal has something to do with chromosomes. My wife oft’ time (loudly) points out that her range is very narrow, and that she is cute but not stunning.

All I know is the first time I saw her perform live I knew she was singing directly to me. Now I own every album of music she has offered for sale.

No really, she was singing to me...honestly…I’m not kidding

Stop laughing.

I'm really wanting to peel a grape right now.

Or buy a smokey blonde a Mercedes.

Why does my wife hate her? I don't get it...

In reply to:

Well, there IS that, too. . I don't think of her as having a great voice or a particularly great range. In fact, she has a couple of vocal traits that trained vocalists frown upon (I'll not reveal them because the last time I did, I angered a guy who complained that being aware of them drove him nuts.)

But, I DO think she is an excellent song stylist, a very competent jazz pianist, has a great group of musicians backing her, and, as mentioned before, has a superb mixer (Al Schmitt). When I listen to her SACDs, I SWEAR I could just reach out and touch her (I'm leaving a LOT of messy fingerprints on my TV screen ). The whole package adds up to "very tasty."

Diana playing too loud.

Wife stomping up stairs.

Currently: Dire Straits, On Every Street. Sounds very good on the Axioms, track 4 for a very real blues mood.
