Yellow Magic Orchestra: Ultimate Collection      (1 of 1 found this review helpful)
  December 24, 2008

The first time I heard Yellow Magic Orchestra was when I was a still kid around 1982. I was impressed by the sound they produced and went looking for one of their albums. In those days japanese import record were really expensive, way out of my price range and really hard to get. So I never bought ... more
Duran Duran: Astronaut        (6 of 7 found this review helpful)
  January 16, 2006

Duran Duran have always been a band I kinda liked. When I saw they released their lasted album on SACD I went for it. Now I wish I didn't. The song are good some of them even great. But then there is the sound quality, which is bad. And when I say bad, I mean really bad. This is one recording that ... more

Since I donít speak a word of French and we donít get any French artist on Dutch radio itís always an adventure trying to buy French titles at The not getting any French artist on Dutch radio is the easy one to fix, thanks to the huge amount of P2P programs out there itís pretty easy to ... more
Stockfisch-Records - Closer to the Music        (3 of 5 found this review helpful)
  November 22, 2004

This SACD is a collection of songs by different artist and contains some of the most natural sounding voices and music I have heard so far on SACD. But this doesnít mean I like the album. I got it for free which is always nice but the music on it just doesnít do it for me.

And so it should, True was the highlight of their career and gave the band major chart success all over the world. To me this SACD is a real winner, on the one hand ... more

Marantz to Add Two Universal Blu-Ray Players

You guys probably don't read German, I can but it takes me a while, but you can look at the pretty pictures. The new Denon player : The sad thing is, the review was written by dvd/blu ray lovers, so no usefull information on the sound quality of the SACD part. They made the machine recode ... more
MoFi: Two more SACDs from The Band, two more Doobie Brothers.
August 6, 2009
I don't consider 29 dollars to much. Europeans pay a lot more than that for the same disc. The cheapest (without shipping) I can find them they are 29,95 euros. But some shops will even go as far as 35 euros without shipping. Take a look at the current exchange rate and you will understand why I will keep importing them from the US. ... more

November 24, 2008
I own a Marantz SA11s1, which had the same problem. It played fine the first year, but after that some discs started skipping, always the same MFSL discs, The Who Tommy disc 2 and Elton John GBYBR disc 2. Marantz realligned the laser and things were fine for more than a year. Than the same problem came back. Again the same couple of discs. Since ... more
