    The details on the Los Lobos album coming from Mobile Fidelity (September 23rd) are up at High Fidelity Review...the sonics should be good a tape to DSD direct transfer with the GAIN 2 system. I especially enjoyed these comments:

    Sadly, I expect that this SACD will sell for $25+. [​IMG]

    Lee, I understand everything you are saying. Perhaps MFSL could get a bit better market penetration with a lower price? I've seen their SACDs in a few stores, and at $25-27, they just sit and collect dust. No joke.

    Very nice release, glad it is hybrid as well.

    This will certainly make it a tough choice to chose between getting this album on vinyl or this.

    As to the other poster's points I think you are both misunderstanding the reason for MoFi's existence. They aren't trying to compete with the Big Boys, they are trying to push the envelope on musical enjoyment out of the various mediums.

    I think Mo-Fi has to pay the piper just to release the stuff that the majors will hand them...? They may be in a position where they can't reduce price much...? That's my theory anyway.

    Can't wait for Britney's 4th? release, I heard she is getting even steamier, hence less clothes on. Good stuff!

    After all, it is all about the music![​IMG]

    While thrilled to have any Los Lobos available in Super Audio- and from MoFi to boot- I was secretly hoping it would be KIKO. In any event, I look forward to picking up this title.
