the single biggest problem with the format is that most releases do not have artist consent or participipation. its like changinging a movie years after the fact, without the director's knowledge or consent.

SACD does not improve rock-n-roll recordings, IMO. The format somehow removes the punch and drive reqired to propel rock music. DVD-A would have been a better choice, but in the end, does a Hi-Rez format really make a recording like "Boston" better? How many of us listened to "Boston" on highly resolving sound systems? Maybe none? Exactly my point.
Well thanks for the input. As for rock on SACD I thought the police sycronicity was absolutly amazing. Is it really a rock cd, well thats debateable. I have Dont look back on the gold disc which I thought was good. So now I guess not only am I 27 bucks in the hole for the SACD but now I have to by the remaster just to compare!!!Yikes
Thanks for the posting guys
