Just arrived back in HK after 5 days in Guangzhou, China.... I visited 3 music stores in TeeMall in Guangzhou, and each of them carried a small selection of SACDs. Can't locate any DVD-A's. However, no Pink Floyd, Stones, Dylan, or any of the Western pop artists we normally talked about here at this forum. Except for a number of local HK pop SACD titles, all of the SACDs I've seen are Western classical titles....from DG, Channel Classics, and Naxos. No Telarc, Sony, or EMI titles. Prices are roughly RMB 200.00, approximately US$24.00/each disc. I did see a Marantz SACD player in a glass case....non-working model. No multi-channel demos for music....just heavy-handed demos of DVDs. Here in HK, the selection of SACDs are much MUCH wider....hybrid Police titles, Simple Minds studio albums on hybrids, Stones, Dylan, etc....about the same price as in the US. Yes, Dave Brubeck's "Time Out" has been released as a hybrid by Sony....HK$135.00, about US$17.00. Same goes for Beyonce's "Dangerously In Love" hybrid SACD. The surprising thing is the extend of SACD titles released locally here by the "Big 5", with the exception of HK Sony. Very little selection for DVD-A's....all I noticed was Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds" and an Iron Maiden title. I will scope out more titles in the next several days. More later. I am at a cyber-cafe, where it's filled with LOUD explosions and mayhem from online gaming.
