    INXS and Mark Knopfler both look good to me.

    Need more shelf space for DVD-A player if this is true. Can't wait for Dire Straits to show up on hi-res. Maybe one day, Van Halen titles will be available....

    But no streetdates? I've been hearing about most of these titles for some time now (particularly the Joni, but this is the first I've heard about the INXS). Any general idea of when these might hit the street?

    Justin, thanks for "spreading the news." [​IMG] These titles are not must-haves for me at this point, but I am intrigued by the Knopfler disc. I haven't heard this album yet, though.

    They're starting with one of Frank's best at least.

    It's been years since I last bought a CD and I don't have a DVD-A player but when that Sinatra disc is released I'll seriously consider upgrading my system just so I can listen to it......

    Wow all these announcements in one day, the same day I received my dvd-audio player, a Pioneer DV-656A.

    I've only had it for about six hours but some cool things about it:

    * Very clear and organized menu system (kind of stylish looking too).

    * Good remote (nice big buttons)

    * "Video off" button

    * Loads dvd-audios quickly (& makes a soft "turbine" sound as it goes between menus & music tracks)

    * Looks nice (has tiny 1/16" strip of holographic material along bottom edge of drawer--gives a neat but subtle flash of color as you walk around it)

    * And hallaleuja--it has a screen saver!!! (my Panasonic DVD-R31 doesn't)

    When I listen to it more with some dvd-audios & CDs I'll report more.

    If I had to make a guess, I would think the Mitchell and Sinatra discs would be coming out first. There was an article last year in S&V which mentioned the work done for Sinatra and Mitchell has been rumored for some time as well. Hopefully Warner has a major announcement of some sort or changes their release strategy (Hybrid or day and date).

    Justin,

    The 4/15 Fleetwood Mac title is still listed as day and date, as is the 6/10 release of Steely Dan's Everything Must Go.

    I have heard rumors the hold up is the pending introduction of hybrid media. Whether this turns out to be true or not remains to be seen.

    Regards,

    I just read another reference to a day & date release of a dvd-audio version of Linkin Park's Meteora album ( from a link on 5.1 Entertainment's site--look northeast of the sacd symbol). Even on the Linkin Park message board a few people asked about this.

    The CD came out this past Tusday, but no dvd-audio version that I know of. This would be a prime candidate for a flipper hybrid, because so many young people (& others [​IMG]) play their music in portable players, cars & their buddy's boombox.

    Come onnnnnn flippers!!!!!
