Has anyone experienced the same problem as I have with this disc. I have an Oppo Blu-Ray player and a Onkyo Receiver. When I play the climax to the main track, "1812 Overture", my amp keeps cutting out the cannons. It physically won't let me hear the cannons, it will play everything in between but ... more

Listening to both the SACD & DVD-Audio, I have to admit, after one listen, I prefer the SACD to the DVD-Audio. I find the rear channel on the DVD-Audio a tad to high. I have only just bought this title from ebay, and will give this disc more plays. Most of the tracks on this album I like, at least ... more

Truth be told, I have never been a fan of Elton John, Liked some of his music, but find the man himself to be a pompous prat. I picked up "Madman Across The Water" cheap on ebay, and boy was I pleasantly surprised. I knew he had a good voice but this SACD blew my socks off. So when I saw "Tumbleweed ... more

Kraftwerk, Minimum Maximum
January 12, 2015
I bought the same CD again off eBay, for £3.20 and that turned out to be a SACD with (I am sure) the same info as the one I have just purchased, and I sold that on eBay for £57.00. I sold the last one because my Panasonic wouldn't play SACD's. I will let people know if this turns out to be a SACD ... more
Kraftwerk, Minimum Maximum
January 11, 2015
Hi to everyone. Can anyone tell me if the Promo UK release of Kraftwerk's "Minimum Maximum was a SACD? I have just bought this title off a buyer on eBay and what caught my eye was the picture of the back cover saying this disc will play on SACD & CD players. If it was just a CD surely this info wouldn't be there. Can anyone help, incidentally I ... more
