Most of the users who post to this forum have some type of high resolution audio format in their systems. If not, there's no doubt that we are all audiophiles. I have just bought Earth Wind & Fire's Gratitude SACD this weekend and I was torn between buying that and similiar SACD That's The Way of the World Live . But Gratitude finally replaces a well preserved but scratch vinyl record that has been in my collection. However, it dawned on me that if I were a executive at Sony Music, I would choose to release a EWF studio album on SACD rather than two SACD's of essentially the same material. With Gratitude being a multi-channel SACD, I would had chosen either Open Your Eyes for its known quad mix or the studio That's The Way of the World solely for its hits(plus it had a quad mix, too). And looking at both formats, the selection of music being released is, sometimes, questionable. Does anyone else have these same thoughts when buying these high-res discs and what would you choose to release instead of the present catalog selection?
