    John, no, it is not an SACD. Sony Music recently remastered some AC/DC albums on CDs. These are standard CDs (in digipaks). That's all.

    Back in Black isn't available on SACD.

    Like 99.9% of the population, that salesperson has no idea what SACD is.

    Definitely return it.

    John, Joel is right. Standard remastered CDs are in digipaks, while single-layer SACDs are in Super Jewel Boxes. There is one exception. Every Breath You Take: The Classics is a hybrid disc in a digipak. It was a single-inventory release, meaning that the hybrid disc replaced the old CD.
