Here, I will show you my very Favorite Discs (Surround Sound) Some are SACD's; some are DVD Audio's, many are Blu Ray Audio. Only one here is a movie. Only two are Classical. These are in no particular order. I really don't think these are right for you, unless you are a Surround Sound Fanatic like I am. If your system came from Walmart, K Mart, etc, close this thread and bow out.

I have many more, but these are the best IMHO.
Make sure your System is up to the task. The Telarc Disc is so powerful, you could blow your System when the Cannons go off. I am not responsible for this.
Some of these discs may not be available or some may be quite expen$ive if they are. Sorry, this is my Addiction.
If John Lenon could hear this disc, he would roll over in his grave (no disrespect to him)

In the day, I had a huge vinyl collection of super discs, including half speed MFSL records. The most valuable of the bunch was Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band UHQR; The Beatles. Serial numbered (low number) in the collector Box; double thick Japanese super vinyl. I only played it three times with my Phillips 212 turntable & Shure V15 Type 5 cartridge. I paid (at the time & ordered it directly from MFS, $50.00. The last time I checked, it was valued at around $1,000. It also came with a certificate of Authenticity. I wish I had it today.
