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. Posted Image

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).

Maybe down the road, but most likely not right away. I don't think any of the clubs offer Hi-res at this point. BMG is one of the largest music labels in the world and not just a music club.

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?

There will be a Hi-res track of some sort on the discs or they wouldn't be DVD-A. They should have a Hi-res surround track as well as at least a DD track of some sort to remain backwards compatible with every DVD player on the market. Elvis had both Hi-res surround and stereo tracks so I am guessing these will follow the same pattern.

I kind of hope they put these in the DVD-A sized super jewel cases as well, though a standard jewel case is not that big of a deal and fits better on my CD racks.

If you read carefully you will see it's all about High Resolution.. And DD will be there too (don't know about dts yet). Posted Image

Elvis have 2 channel 24/96.

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.

Yep, the new disc better have more dynamics if they want me to buy it.

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