CB, I'm not familiar with that disc, but in general no stereo mode, including an "enhanced" one, reproduces 2-channel material on a surround setup(which should always be used)as well as a surround mode such as DPLII does. SACD doesn't change this; the surround channels on it would be what makes a difference.

The Gonzales version of "Hollywood" by Marina and the Diamonds. I like it.

My system currently only consists of L/C/R. No sub or surrounds. The stereo modes produce better sound than when I choose a surround mode on the Pioneer that includes the center channel, so for now I'm only concentrating on stereo for music. So far, for all music it seems I get the best sound (without a lot of obvious sound processing by the AVR), is when I use direct, not pure direct, and have the EQ turned on. During pure direct the upper freqs are supperssed. With just direct the upper freqs are back. I don't know enough about what is going on here yet to understand the difference.

Metallic Falcons - Desert Doughnuts

It's working as background music while I play Bejeweled Blitz (hating the new version, by the way--my average score went way down, even though I have a new personal high score), but I'm still not sure what I think of this album.

What's your new high score? I think around 210,000 is my best. I don't play it nearly as frequently as I used to.

783,650. It was 672,000 or so on the previous version. But yeah, I had that one good game in this new version, and most of my other scores have been dismal (in comparison). I just can't seem to keep the flow going.

Flyleaf, Momento Mori
Good stuff but a lot more 'radioish' than their first CD which I think I prefer a bit more than this one for that reason.

The funny part though is that I have to say I listened to their first CD a fair bit since it's release in 05 or 06 and I had no idea they were a Christian rock band. It's quiet a bit more obvious in this CD. Enough so that I had to wiki them to see if they suddenly turned Christian but it turns out they always were.

Edit:
I remembered I burned this a while ago but never listened to it when I was reading the "Mark as a Ghost" thread. Momento Mori translates into something like "Remember you must die.:

Hopefully you will "Ago porro quod prospicio" instead.
