    Anybody know if any 80's new wave is on SACD or is planned to be? Like New Order, Joy Division, Cure, Smiths, etc?

    I wish. That's my kinda music too, but the only 'alternative' SACDs I've gotten are David Bowie's "Heathen", Beck's "Sea Change" & Roxy Music's "Avalon". The Cure's "Disintegration" would make for a great 5.1 experience.

    Though it isn't the kind of new wave I really like, this compilation is available on DVD-Audio.

    There's some 80's new wave, but mostly imports... Human League, Crowded House, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and some others. I don't have any of these, but I believe High Fidelity Review has reviewed some of them. You may want to check SACDinfo.com, as well.

    Not hi-res, but 5.1: the Cure's "Trilogy" DVD is quite good, and includes a live performance of the entire "Disintegration" album (plus Pornography and Bloodflowers). Excellent performance and very good sonics for DD-5.1.

    So whats the holdup? It seems that other than classical, not much is being released on multi channel... Are these formats going to make it?

    I work in the entertainment industry, and Ive never known the Music execs to miss a chance to re-tool, re-package and re-release old product.
