    With all the complexity and turmoil of daily life, it's just wonderful to have something that whisks you away from that for a short time. If it happens to be a SHM disc, than so be it. Glad it's good! Going onto my want list.

    I will put in on my Amazon Wish List in the hopes es347 will buy me one. Hahahaha!

    Seriously though, hey Gavin, did you get to compare it with a non SHM SACD?

    Does a non-SHM SACD exist?

    The Gaucho DVD-A is extremely good, too. It's readily available:

    Haven't heard the SACD, so no direct comparison from me....

    Actually I was wondering the same thing. I always listen to the LP and my digital is just downloaded AAC. Come to think of it I don't even think I've even seriously listened to the CD. Gaucho yes, Aja no.

    I meant a CD of Aja Gav, I listen to the original LP but passed on the highly touted re-issue.

    I have this and I think it sounds pretty good but not as good as the better LP pressings.
