Brothers In Arms Dire Straits SACD

Created: 27/11/10
The SACD compared to the cd version was way more detailed. The organ in Brothers in Arms was very pronounced in the SACD vs the CD version. Little details like that makes all the differance to big Dire Straits/Audiophile fans. You also get guitars and other instruments surrounding you and seperately is a really neat experience vs just stereo version. I bought it because I just purchased a Oppo 93 and it has the ability to play SACD's.

Redo a HiFi classic?

Created: 06/04/08
The original release of this disc has always been a favorite of mine. Smooth with excellent depth and width of stage. The songs ran the gamut of emotions and content. Knoplfer demonstrates you don't need speed or a lot of flash to truly speak with an instrument.
This new re-recording takes nothing away from the original. It does add more dynamic range and impact. Mark's voice is much more forward and present. I can't make comment on surround sound encoding, I only listen in two channel. I must say, SACD does sound superior to standard CD recordings even without true 5.1 decoding in my system.
I would highly recommend this disc if you're on the fence!

Really nothing much to say - simply excellent!
The sound of this release is really good, in both SACD (especcially surround) and CD portions of this disc.
