News from the sa-cd.net website....
release in the States?
Most of her stateside releases are on WEA, so I'd look for DVD-A. If Warner doesn't move quick on it, I'll definitely try to pick up a couple of import SACDs (the exchange rate is brutal right now...the Vespertine SACD goes for $30-$35).
Oh man, I can't wait for these!
Medulla is available for preorder on both SACD and DVD-A from Amazon UK for 12 UKP (about $22). Shipping usually gets offset by the fact that we don't have to pay VAT.
Choice is good.
Well, this puts a little sugar in my cubes.
Is this the same one you see?
I guess they don't ID it as SACD or DVDA because the hybrid is the only initial release? I see it as 14.99 UKP, not 12 UKP.
Oops! I found it (the SACD):
another long link
You're looking at the U.S import on Elektra in that link. If you put in a search for Medulla you should come up with all the available versions, including the DVD-A and SACD on U.K label One Little Indian.
Beat me to it! Looks like you found them.
Format is irrelevant.
Just gimme that pagan poet Icicle Girl in multi-channel hi-res!
Vespertine is a stunner in DVD-A.
Patiently waiting for Medulla . . .
My charge for Medulla from amazon.co.uk came to a little over 10 pounds after the VAT was subtracted. Of course, the shipping adds a lot more back, but the total is around $20 USD. Not bad...
I'm loving Vespertine, too. I just put my mains on spikes (they were directly on a wood floor w/ no carpet and the resonance of some mid-bass frequencies was annoying) and put gel thingies between my center and the idiot box. When I listened to Vespertine yesterday, the slightly edgy quality had balanced out somewhat and it sounded wonderful (more wonderful than it used to!).
It's dissapointing that the hi-rez versions are not available in the US. I really would like to get this on SACD.
If the cost for the UK LE is just around $20 shipped, though, that's pretty equivalent to the Best Buy pricing for the domestic LE (which, to my knowledge, contains the standard CD).
How about from Canada??
Warner = no SACD. It is disappointing that the DVD-A isn't available here yet, but waiting around for an SACD is like waiting around waiting for Sony to release a DVD-A.
Danny, thanks for the tip. I'll try mallmusic in future. How's your experience ordering from them?
