If I only had one hour left to live... I would much rather cue up a 24/192 re-master of Sgt. Pepper, than watch Gigli on a Blu-ray disc.

Have not heard from you in a while. But, good news, Stanley Clarke has a brand new CD on Telarc`s Jazz Label HeadsUp International entitled - "The Toys of Men." A Hybrid SACD. It is excellent. Definitely a throwback to the Return to Forever Days. In fact, I saw him on a cover of a music magazine while at Barnes and Noble today talking about going back to the 70`s fusion music and re-uniting with Return To Forever.

I prefer music in surround with or without a picture. The picture is a throw in, as far as I'm concerned. People are used to "looking" for video for a live concert presentation, but for studio DVD-A/SACD/Quad stuff, the picture is not required. Most of the time, people are moving around when listening to music anyway.

I personally listen to music-only programming with no additional picture added, but rather a colorful and programmable array of LED spot and flood lights. This allows for both continuous and uniform white lighting, as well as colorful processions of colored light that enhance the mood.

Yet, I appreciate decoding mono and stereo recordings (even 5.1, 6.2, & 7.1) over my 8.8 surround system, as it allows for a substantially more immersive and realistic experience from just about any source.

Yes, 5.1 or 7.1 system for music is unbelievable, when I graded my system to include 3 B&W 802D and 2 B&W 802 with the JLFathom F113 sub let me know I realized how good SACD is

Listening to symphonies on this system is almost like being there if you close your eyes.
