Boy do I know it. I won't pay that sort of money for discs I'm afraid. I was thrilled that MoFi was doing this Ellington on SACD and pre-ordered it way back when so only have the original price into my copy. I sold a few dozen SACDs last year when I was a bit short of making my property tax payment, but didn't sell that one. For me it's that rare thing: music I love that is also a fantastic mastering.

Just got this note from the seller:

Quote:
I want to thank you for your purchase of this important and exceptional SACD. It pleases me that there are a few audiophiles in America who still hold quality over quantity. This is a very important production, in my opinion. Thank you for this purchase and your respectful ear and heart.

Gotta love that.

The ZP3 has hit a new phase lately. I just listened to two sides of this release, which I've had since it first hit the stores what seems as if it were a long time ago. It's never sounded like this before on any medium, just amazing percussive sound and overall ambiance.

Impressive SACD.

Hey Lon, I had missed this in my absence, but I see you upgraded to the PWD MK!!. Impressions?

Well, I could have lived without it but I'm glad I finally was able to afford the upgrade. Mk II improves my DVR and Blu-ray sources, which were impressive before then. There's less improvement on my Redbook sound imo, I'm using the PWT for those discs and it already has a "digital lens" inside and adding one more in the path I think does improve the sound, but it's less so than adding one for the other inputs (which didn't have one beforehand) has brought.

I'm very happy with my digital front end now (or still, or again). And now my analog front end is as good as I feel it can be for now as well, and I'm enjoying that world of sound immensely too. It's giving my Redbook cd habit a run for its money.

I am probably being dense here, but how are you routing your DVR and BluRay through the PWD?

Remember, I'm a died in the wool Luddite two channel person who does not do surround sound.

I have the DVR coming in to the PWD via the optical input and the Blu-ray via the coaxial RCA input.

Some James McMurtry. In mono, or more correctly, from my right channel. I really need to get off of my butt and order myself some new tubes.
