    I was browsing tower.com's SACD's last night and on a great many titles this was listed, "quantities limited, title out of print". 50, or so, Sony titles said this. Mee'uh's auh tinkin' dat de hybrid era may be soon to arrive in mass, maybe?

    I saw that too Rachael...

    Alot of Miles Davis is going (Dark Magus, Big Fun, Live Evil, etc.) Hopefully to be replaced with new improved MULTI-CHANNEL disk ala "Kind of Blue".

    ...can't wait for the new MC "Bitches Brew"...

    I can't quite figure the rationale behind discontinuing the multi-channel version of Carole King's "Tapestry". I imagine it must be one of the larger selling sony sacds... -JD

    Jack, the assumption is that these discs will be replaced with HYBRID, CD layer added discs. This isn't a multi-channel or not thang. You can have stereo SACD, M/C SACD, and a CD stereo PCM program/layer all on the same disc. Best wishes![​IMG]

    Rachael,

    I do understand that, but you know what they say when we assume (you know... ASS out of U and ME...)

    After all, this is sony we're talking about...

    I think that it's a strange selection of discs if that's sony's plan...

    A few "more popular" (and of those, very few multi-channel) titles, and ALOT of John Tesh kind of stuff... Sorry to John Tesh fans(I do think there are a couple...somewhere)

    I have a feeling alot of these may simply be going out-of-print...

    Then again, what do I know. Time will tell...

    Best wishes to you! -JD

    Jack, my guess is that these are, for the most part, the fastest sellers. These may be the discs they'll run out of first anyway. Some are really recent releases like Jorma Kaukonen. I know what you mean when you say this is So-knee, the corporation that is always skinning it's knees. Makes you wonder what kind of brain-trust they have there? [​IMG] I think Sony is ready to sidetrack it's desire to do away with that nasty PCM and make hybrids because they must to ensure success. They don't want to but know they have to do it economically. Best wishes! [​IMG]
