Overal if you don't have them, it saves you $30 a piece, and you won't miss a thing on all 3 SACD's, all come with flaws, even the cover-photo's are better on the original DCC and BMG cd's. nice collector items, but that's realy it .... :( Stick with your original cd's!


Does this now mean we are going to have to replece all our hundreds of CD's with SACD's now, just loike we did with records, cassettes, 8 tracks, 78's, etc, etc? I think I'll stick with what I've got. It'll take at least another 20 years to get everything all over again via SACD.


Nope, SACD and DVD-A have been out for quite awhile, they were competing formats. They did not catch on. Only limited edition audiophile examples are being made today. The general music buying public has never been interested in quality. Thus the MP3 format is what has taken over. People want cheap and easy. Quality has not been a priority for at least 3-4 decades now. And we wonder why the US manufacturing jobs have gone!

Plus, nobody really needs to replace their Stereo '57 CD do they.. ? ..it's a beautiful-sounding CD. God knows there's enough bad sounding CDs around without spending time & money attempting to "upgrade" ones that already sound great.

The hiss is there but much less so than on CD.

Yes, I should have stated the hiss was more widespread. If I were to guess,it was because of less compression used for the SACD mastering. Both CD & SACD version are great in their own way.

Tony Im not speaking as if Im a moderator to this forum - Having seen your posts on this forum many times , I have seen your posts and replies of you dissing this one nd that about their posts and hard work - I think you have been so negative on good material and such thats all - Why dont you enjoy some of the material that has ben released or due out and please take a chill pill -on some of other fans work on cds etc - Ok - - I know that SACDS and some releases may have been released before -
Please think before you add to this forum - -as you are tedious on your replies at times - You seem not to appeciate any thing thats being released .
Just a piece of advice -Ok
Thnx -

Track 20 does not bother me at all cause I don't particularly like that Gospel song. Even when (many moons ago) the original CD release came out, I only listened to the binaural stuff. So don't worry about it. It was a "bonus" song anyways. ::rocks

Re: Elvis Stereo ´57 SACD

I ALWAYS praise quality work and / or product. I DON'T praise the same old greatest hits being re-re-re-released time and time again and things like that and I don't believe people need them. I have thousands of items in my collection that are brilliant. Just take a look at the rare record topic for examples.

Yes, my thoughts exactly. Since it was a mono bonus track and not binaural, it didn't bother me much.

Sorry, I can´t complain if I don´t have the proper support, they will think that I have a faulty copy. Another thing would be if all who have this release complained, then they would accept it´s a faulty copy :roll:. This is the way it works!. Bye for now :smt006.

You have heard the disc so you are in prime position to contact Analogue Productions about the problem. I have not heard the disc so it's very hard to complain about something I have not heard.

Write an e-mail to AP. They are an audiophile label so there is a good chance they'll respond and maybe do something about it. The small audiophile labels care about quality and faulty discs have been repressed and replaced at no extra cost in the past.

BTW track 20 is mono not binaural. Try actually listening to the SACD sometime so you would know what you're talking about. Hope this helps.

I did not say deceive. I said sell it. You can still sell it stating it has a mastering fault. A very important bonus track #20.
