SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
Long argued as one of the (if not THE) best rock recording ever and a permanent fixture on many a demo system in the late 70s and 80s, Aja was the culmination of everything Donald Fagen and Walter Becker aspired to accomplish in their storied careers. It was the first album certified platinum (eventually selling more than 5 million copies in the U.S.) by the then-new RIAA sales tracking system. It made Steely Dan super stars. It contained three ubiquitous U.S. top 40 singles, Peg, Josie and Deacon Blues,--though each of the seven tracks are wonderful. The tight arrangements, inspired playing by the West Coasts best session players, and countless lyrical and musical hooks (Drink Scotch whiskey all night long, and die behind the wheel, Done up in blue print blue, it sure looks good on you) were immediately accessible yet completely cut off any personal connection to the listener.
