    Rumours was my first recommendation.
    If you like great guitar, you might get Eric Johnson's Avia Musicon

    Good stuff....

    I thought the JT SACDs were all only dual channel. I'm looking for multichannel.

    I just got Lynyrd Skynyrd and Sting Ten Summoner's Tales. Both very good. Sting is great music, but a little disappointing on multichannel engineering.

    I LOVE the Eric Johnson CD as I've had it for YEARS. Didn't see it in the retail aisles, so I'll have to search online....

    So far, my favorite of both formats is The Stranger. The sound is just so clear and it isn't "over-engineered" like the Queen DVD-A.

    More recommendations are definitely welcomed....

    Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now on DVD-A. Her new song, A Case of You gives me gooseflesh every time I hear it.

    (Somewhat ironically, the first time I actually did hear it was at an early Sony SACD demo at a trade show. They had a 2-ch SACD mix that has never been released. The multi-channel DVD-A mix is quite a bit better.)

    I'm just getting into Jennifer Warnes' The Well on SACD. Superb recording but, unfortunately, only 2-channel. Haven't "clicked" on any of the tunes so far but haven't had a chance to play the 2nd half of the album. (I'm waiting for a time I can do so confident of not being interupted.)

    Talked to the head of AIX Records a couple of months ago. He told me they were in negotiations for a new DVD-A with Jennifer.

    I took a trip to Best Buy and Media Play to check out the selection of DVD-A and SACD audio, sadly still not much of anything I like. I currently have 4 DVD-As.

    Disturbed- Believe
    Metallica- Metallica (aka Black Album)
    Linkin Park- Reanimation
    The Beach Boys- Pet Sounds

    I'd like to see a few more Metallica albums, some Korn, AC/DC and Cannibal Corpse. I know theres concert DVDs out of some of those bands, but I'd rather have them on DVD-A. I don't have a DVD-A player (yet) so I play the DD5.1 tracks, still sounds pretty good, a lot better then CD thats for sure.
