You couldn't count me as a tremendous fan, but the recording of Norah Jones' - Come Away with Me is breathtaking.




The regular CD or the multichannel one?

I have heard both the standard CD and the SACD. They are both excellent. The standard CD sounds so good that you may forget that it is not hi-res audio.

Good call on the Mark Knopfler disc. All of his are well-recorded, as are the later Dire Straits albums.




Wow! Track 6 (Ride across the river) of Dire Straits: Brothers in Arms is absolutely incredible! I still can't believe that 2-channel stereo can sound this deep and wide. What about multi-channel recordings? Is there a site that offers some? I listened to Alan Parsons: On Air and was completely blown away.

Mo, if I knew that you were willing to order as many as 60 CDs, I'd have suggested 57 more!

Dire Straits: Brothers in Arms on SACD is one of my favorites, I believe it won best multi-channel recording last year on the Music Awards. I shop at CD Universe, there are many online sites that sell SACD and DVD-A's.

Thanks a lot. I just bought it but it's back-ordered.

Brothers in arms is available on both dvd-a and sacd. Somehow I wound up with both. Ordered one from Amazon then found the other on amazon ca., then couldn't change the first order due to being cheap(free shipping option). I've found several titles on Amazon ca. that weren't on amazon.com.
I never got the cd version, already had the lp and never got around to it.

John somehow I get the impression you love classical music.
