my 2 cents...the best (and lazy) way to buy is online from sites like amazon.com, elusivedisc.com, etc. you could also check out ebay if you know which titles you need. best part of buying online is listening the samplers. you dont have to just buy blind based on others feedback.

as for suggestions, if you are into classical music I would recommend Mahler Symphony no. 2 in C Minor "Resurrection" Gilbert Kaplan and Wiener Philharmoniker Hybrid SACD from Deutsche Grammophon. This disc convinced me of SACD's superiority over Redbook.
Frankly I couldn't hear any difference in my system. While I was out for a demo, I listened to this through an all Magnat gear, in a well treated room. it was a revelation indeed.

also check out some XRCDs from companies like FIM. XRCD recording, IMO, is as good as CD gets. but make sure you pick your desired genre of music. FIM content is not to everyone's taste.
