Kind of Blue SACD on a whim.

I've been listening to jazz for only about a year. I can't say that I'm a jazz fan yet but I am growing more and more fond of Kind of Blue. Last night I was looking around on eBay and saw a Kind of Blue MoFi hybrid SACD. It was $30, new, and on an impulse I bought it.

I have never bought and do not own any SACDs. (I have an Oppo player). I also know nothing about MoFi other than an association with high production quality.

Anyway, I am interested in anyone's thoughts on this SACD from a quality standpoint. According to the dynamic range database virtually all releases of Kind of Blue are superb from a DR standpoint so that should not be an issue. I did read that on some CD releases prior to 1992 the timing was off which cause slight pitch issues. I am assuming this SACD would not suffer from that issue but have no way of knowing but probably don't have the ears or familiarity with the album to know.


Fantastic news.  It's always great to hear that someone is thrilled by the combination of outstanding music and amazing SQ.  Nice job on your description of the imaging as well.

I'm beating a dead horse, but this was recorded in Spring 1959 - 62 years ago.  There are so many more jaw-dropping recordings from that era, all using reel-to-reel.  Welcome to what many consider the golden age of jazz.  Again - hope you enjoy the journey, however far you go.
