"Yes I'd prefer the DVD, I have a few downloads, but they lack that physical connection with the music you get from deciding to listen to something, picking it out and playing it, be it Vinyl, CD, SACD etc. A bizarre view maybe!" - Duncan S., UK

David Elias - DSD DVD Data Discs - Masters Shipped to You on Disc

On my OPPO 103 I place the disc in the player, close the tray, press the right arrow once to select "Music" on LED screen (no remote, no monitor on), then press the Play button.... Chill time. Other UDP players operate in similar ways.

Same exact DSD master, same exact sound quality as SACD or DSD Download. Just insert in BDP player to play. You can back up (archive) it to your computer as well and play it from there if you like.

"Crossing" and "The Window" Multichannel DSD source master audio files (DSF) are over 5 Gigabytes for each album.  Downloading 5 GB's is very challenging for some. Then when they get it, they have to make it known to their computer audio software or media server or other player library. None of that is necessary with DVD Data Discs hosting the same audio files. They play as-is from any BDP/UDP supporting SACD.

NO DOWNLOADS or COMPUTER REQUIRED

Why wait for the large DSF files to download (200MB average stereo, 500MB average Multichannel per song). Simple purchase using secure PayPal online (any credit card or your PayPal account).

"This morning I am playing David's [DSD song] files on HA-2/PM-3 and must report that it's among the highest fidelity I've experienced. All other repro falls away as being 'less than'. On 'Morning Light Western Town', deep bass definition is beyond that of anything I've heard and vocal naturalness, solidity and realism truly awesome. John Havard's guitar work, transcendental." - Dez - 40 years an audiophile, now a mobile HRA convert

"The Window" SACD Lyrics/Notes/Photos PDF Booklet   The Window - Original SACD Notes/Lyrics/Photos PDF

"Every 'great' recording requires 'great' music, and that's what this disc is all about. The result can truly be considered a work of greatness. From the moment the disc begins, one is instantly grabbed by the intimate soundstage; Elias sings the majority of lines no louder than a whisper, almost as if all the songs are lullabies, but it sounds as if he's doing so while sitting on your lap, such is the feeling of a real, confined acoustic space and a close proximity to the performers. The experience is startling, even to a hardened listener such as myself." - Stuart Robinson - High Fidelity Review

"If you want to know what SACD is all about...then get a SACD player and this SACD. Every time I queue it up in my 5 disc changer/player, even if I start doing something else in the interim, I stop and sit and smile for at least a song or two when this one comes up. David's voice and acoustic guitar, the supporting musicians, the clarity of the recording, the overall production of the album are second to none. Many, if not most, other SACD recordings are mixed into the SACD format either after being recorded before DSD/SACD format was invented or after being recorded on the more typical/standard studio equipment; a true DSD recording, such as this one, is still a rarity. If you're an acoustic music fan this one is a must have." - S. Whittenton

"Doesn't get any better than this. Euphoric! David has hit on all cylinders with this one. May as well be as inviting him and his wonderful band into your living room. Every aspect from composition,personnel and end results in the mastering process are as good as these 55 year old ears have heard. I can't wait til the next one." - Tom Huffstutler

"From the first note, it's apparent that this is an extraordinary recording...This is intelligent and melodic pop folk-rock, and Elias's singing is honest and tuneful." - Kal Rubinson, Stereophile Magazine.

"When describing the sound of Elias’ previous Super Audio CD release The Window, I described it as “a reference quality recording”. Crossing is clearly in the same category and some might even say it sounds a bit better. Listening to Crossing on a quality Super Audio CD Surround Sound system is a true pleasure. As with his previous Super Audio CD, Crossing features a mix of soft singing that some have referred to as almost a lullaby style and other tunes that have a more upbeat tempo." - High Fidelity Review

David Elias "Slipper DSD Sessions"

Slipper DSD Sessions - Stereo DSD Master - DVD Data Disc

defying easy description as far as genre these innovative acoustic/electric gems are some of the most engaging DSD masters you will ever hear.

Just when you thought you understood "genre" you get Independent Acoustic ranging from heavy wood trio to electric quartet and a chilling solo thrown in for good measure.

The Slipper DSD Sessions are the result of live studio sessions performed by David Elias, Charlie Natzke, Chris Kee, Scott Beynon and Ken Owen in the small intimate studio at Slipperworld, La Honda, California in the redwoods on the Northern California coast.

These are some of the hidden treasures on studio takes that didn't get on other album releases but have their own eclectic qualities as a collection here. Even the quote below from music aficionado and muse Beth Patterson hints at what's in store for you here.
