Should we then conclude that best classical on SACD comes in Super Jewel Boxes only...???

Maybe time to return to the original topic. Enough said of plastic packaging materials, whether in jest or, amazingly enough, dead seriousness.

Apparently NOT.

I've just bought the Bach Cello Suites by Janos Starker on an OOP Mercury Living Presence, in the hope that it may be the best version on SACD. I'm listening to the new Linn SACD with Richard Tunnicliffe of the same works currently.

Is the Starker a 'best' candidate for this music?

I've received this about a week ago:
Bartok: String Quartets Nos. 3 & 4 - Parkanyi Quartet

..... and almost immediately ordered SQ 1/2 and 5/6.

If you don't have these Bartok string quartets in your collection, you're missing something special. SQ AND performance are amazing!!!!

EDIT: It's 5.1 multi-channel as well.

Agreed - and they sound even better with candlelight and wine!
