Have you looked on HD tracks (they offer some Hi Rez downloads)..........Obviously you know you can't download SACD ....... Have you looked for the hybrid disc ...... Just some thoughts ..

I own the Love Supreme on SACD.
I will loan it to you to rip, IF you cannot find it on a hi-rez download. I do NOT want to sell it.
It will be a hassle as it will require postage both ways and a some kind of insurance fee so you don't forget to return it or a small child I can keep as hostage (well, you get the idea).
If you have to have it and cannot find it, I can help.
Thanks for the excellent responses, I already looked into HDtracks and they don't have it for download just 180gr & SACD. I did find on Hi-Res Music website that they did a SACD re-master of John Coltranes A Love Supreme but they are not selling it now nor is there a download. I'm happy to pay for it.
Stealhead, Thank you for the gracious offer and wish I could take you up on it but currently I don't a SACD just a MacMini connected via a outboard DAC to my Ayre/Totems.
I do have another question is there a remaster or release that excels over the others that I should be looking for?
Again, thanks for the help.
The 2003 Impulse version (B0000610-02) is vastly superior to the '86 version you own. According to the liner notes, this version was mastered by Rudy Van Gelder, from a copy different than "all previous digital incarnations of A Love Supreme." Also from the liner notes: "...Rudy Van Gelder declared it to be as close to the real thing as one could get in the analog domain without having the original tape..."
I haven't heard any subsequent releases (SACD or otherwise) because I'm happy enough with this version.
