I couldn't seem to find a separate thread on the SACD so I started this one. I got my copy of the Tea for Tillerman SACD today from Acoustic Sounds. I was curious to see how it stacked up against the Quality Records Pressing (Acoustic Sounds) - so I promptly compared two cuts from the LP to the SACD. The mastering seems the same, probably done at the same time (by George Marino at Sterling Sound). The LP and SACD have nearly the same, if not the same, tonality. A lot of people love the QRP pressing of this LP. At first I had some issues with grainy and bright vocals, but after adjusting a few things with my tonearm on my Clearaudio Concept TT I got the LP to sound really nice. The SACD sounds very similar to the new LP. I might even say it sounds identical - the only difference being the playback of my Sony XA5400ES vs. the playback anomalies of my Clearaudio Turntable. In short, the SACD is very good and worth the money (especially if you don't do vinyl and can't play the new QRP pressing).
