    Wow, I had no idea these were coming out. Santana and Sarah McLachlan are big big releases for the format. I will probably be picking up all four discs. Way to go BMG and keep the releases coming.

    Here's a direct link.

    Holy crap, someone I like is coming to hi-res! Good ol' depressing Sarah in surround! (no kidding--I really like her. I have her Fumbling Towards Ecstasy and Surfacing albums). Neat dreamy music perfect for multichannel playback. I like Santana but presently don't have any of their CDs (the one I had got sold during my poor college years, the one with "Black Magic Woman").

    Whew! My two hundred bucks I just spent for my new dvd-audio player has just become better justified. [​IMG]

    One other cool detail: Alan Parson's music is also on the Arista label. Oh please oh please oh please.............

    Surfacing is a must have hi-res format title! Listening to my redbook copy, I always wondered how much better it would sound in hi-res. Guess I'll get my wish! Woohoo!

    Supernatural may make my second-copy purchase list as well...

    Still early in the year, so that leaves a lot of room for release dates. Hope its soon (fingers crossed).

    I wonder if they'll release them in the old CD-sized jewel cases, like the Elvis DVD-A.

    I hope not! I like the new cases....

    Will these have High Rez, or just Dolby Digital and maybe DTS.

    Did the Elvis disc have a 2 channel High Res mix?

    That depends on whether they go back and get rid of all that compression in Supernatural.

    High-res with 1dB of dynamic range... Kind of defeats the purpose of high-res doesn't it?

    I'm still looking forward to the titles, although I think the 2nd McLachlan title should have been something besides Mirrorball

    But that's just me, and I know they'll go in the collection nonetheless.

    Regards,

    That's good news. Not huge, but good. [​IMG] I've never been impressed with the sound of the Supernatural CD, so hopefully the DVD-Audio disc will be much better.
