RE: Dire Straits SACDs

Returning to the original question, what has not been mentioned is that the Dire Straits SACD has a 5:1 track and it makes good use of all the channels, sub woofer included. I really like 5:1 versions if done well and I certainly prefer the 5:1 SACD to the stereo original (and I have one of the early, supposedly good stereo CDs).

 

The only music I would torrent is that which is unavailable to buy. These include a large number of Genesis bootlegs (which were freely discussed on the old official Genesis forum and were ok as long as they were free) and the best ever Yes recording (BBC live at Wembley). I have every official live recording from both bands and would buy official copies if available. If you can buy it you should.

"what has not been mentioned is that the Dire Straits SACD has a 5:1 track "......

That's because the items the OP is asking about are SHM-SACD's which are stereo only!  Smile

Loads of second hand expensive kit!

It does not say SHM-SACD in his first post, just Japanese. The ONLY Brothers in arms SACD on the acousticsounds website is hybrid multi channel, so it is the only one we can sensibly discuss.

Will do Major, ta. I'm in town tomorrow anyway so I thought I might just pop into HMV and grab a handful of CDs. I wouldn't buy them normally anyway, so it seems fair enough. 

That's assuming that the discs you want haven't been deleted by the record company. In particular, mainstream SACD's are very hard to come by these days in the shops or at online retailers, most were quickly deleted after issue.
