Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
Obviously not for everyone...but I think it kicks ass

"As an owner of many SACDs (multichannel, stereo, hybrid and non-hybrid), I would have to say that this SACD is better than most but not as good as a small few. Sure, they (the record company) perhaps could have made this multichannel...but would it have sounded as true? For instance, take Friday Night in San Francisco (DiMeola, McLaughlin, DeLucia). This SACD is not hybrid, and is mixed in Stereo, yet it is one of the truest to life musical reproductions I have ever heard.
Boston's self-entitled album is a 70s classic. When I received this SACD from Amazon, I went straight home and blasted it on my system with all the windows open. My wife left for the grocery store as Foreplay started playing at extreme volume. I actually listened to this SACD three times that evening, with each time better than the last. If you don't like Boston, then this SACD isn't for you. On a decent system this SACD sounds great...on an exceptional system, this SACD sounds awesome."
What a bunch of crappola

"Are you kidding me? Stereo? No multi-channel? The average sound system and listener are not going to be able to tell the difference between this and the standard CD issue. (I realize the average system and listener aren't likely to collect SACD's but thats only a statement of comparison.)
The purpose of the medium is to provide a multichannel listening experience. This is just a ripoff."

"Excellent sound on Boston's best album. Would recommend to anyone who is a fan of high res music."
