Onhwy61, first me, then Albert, now you! OK, the jury's still out with Mr. Porter, I'm interested in his ultimate reaction. Your point is excellent on spreading the word. One of my partners, who is not into the high end but does like good sound (at my suggestion he got the Reference Recordings Copland disc and now wants their whole catalog), is thinking of upgrading his 5-disc changer, and I think I've talked him into the Sony 333ES. He really doesn't care that much about the SACD capability, just a better sounding unit he can play 5-6 hours of music on. He may try SACD at my urging, but the higher price of the software turns him off. That would seem to me to be one of the biggest obstacles to the format, most people are happy with CD, why replace something that's equally convenient and, to them, isn't the "quantum leap improvement" that CD appeared to be (we know better, but I remember the biggest selling point for CD over LP, other than convenience, was the freedom from ticks, pops and scratches and the other noise associated with vinyl) and costs more to boot. I hope to convince him otherwise with the dmp sampler and the jazz cuts from the Sony sampler. If so, one more voice calling for more and better software!
