I just ordered The Stranger and 52 Street on MFSL SA-CD; they are NOT 5.1 discs. I already own them on redbook CD and vinyl, but I can't wait to hear them! I'll try post impressions of their sq after I've listened to them for a while.

I received the MFSL SA-CDs and have given them a listen...WOW! I'll try to post a bit more info and get specific as to what impresses me the most, but for now that one word (WOW!!) does a good job of summing-up my over-all impression. :cool:

The original masters must be a huge part of the sound. Also, MFSL mods their electronics.

Hard to tell if the gold substrate improves the sound, but it does look pretty cool. :D

There's an insert detailing the equipment that MFSL uses; they use custom electronics with a bandwidth of DC to 100kHz (sampled at 2.8MHz)!! I will never forget the sound of Pink Floyd's The Wall on MFSL; it had a liquid sound I had never before (or since) heard on Redbook CD.

I noticed that the new SA-CDs background "noise" isn't "black" or even ultra-quiet; it's just plain non-existent! On 52nd Street I'd swear that you are sitting in the sound engineer's chair; truly incredible SQ.

I used to own MFSL "The Wall". :doh: I'll pick me up a used one, someday, although they ain't cheap. :spend::dollarsign::dollarsign::dollarsign:

The DVD of the The Wall has really nice sound. Wish they would release it and the other Floyd shows on Blu Ray. Hoping The Wall sees SACD, too.

I've never heard this, but one day I will order it anyway.
It's Roger Waters' Sony Master Sound release that is "bit-mapped" to quasi 20 bit resolution. BIG MONEY!! I have an original release, a Japanese release and (soon) the Sony SBM (Super Bit Mapping) Gold CD. I'm actually thinking of doing a review to see (hear?? :D ) if there's any real difference in SQ.
