    Excellent!

    And to think I almost bid on an MFSL "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" yesterday, and planned to bid hard for a UD1 MFSL that just popped up on eBay! I s'pose I can wait till the fall for some hi-rez Elton. [​IMG]

    I hope they're hybrids, though this early report makes it sounds like they're not.

    Well, that puts a damper on my hunt on E-bay for some of the Rush Remasters that I do not yet have.

    I was just about to start a thread asking if the MFSL version of Signals is better than the current Remaster. I guess its still a valid question since Signals is not on teh SACD list, but methinks it will be at some point in the future.

    And 2112 in 5.1 ought to be very cool in deed.

    But lets not forget EJ's GYR. Also an instant buy.

    When I read release news like this, I start chanting:

    I AM GLAD I BOUGHT A UNIVERSAL PLAYER
    I AM GLAD I BOUGHT A UNIVERSAL PLAYER
    I AM GLAD I BOUGHT A UNIVERSAL PLAYER

    I am very excited about 2112. It's my favorite Rush toon. I don't really care if it's a hybrid because I was very happy with the last remaster, but I am totally psyched to hear it in surround. I am also looking forward to Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. Hopefully some SACD 5.1 Best of's aren't far behind because I am not a completist for either Rush or Elton.

    It seems like not too long ago I replaced by original Rush CDs with the remasters. Now I may be doing it again with hybrid SACDs.

    Still, it's better than non-hybrids.

    All three artists are among my favorites.

    This is huge news and will propel the format forward.

    I think we will start to see more retailer acceptance as a result of this. This is a big commitment by the label.

    Holy shit! Joe Henderson's Lush Life!!! is coming?!

    Great album from someone I briefly worked with and I miss a whole lot. A class act - one of the greats. Let's hope there are more of his catalog on the way.

    I am thinking this could be the beginning of the Sting/Elton John catalog on SACD....

    Okay, this has pushed me over the edge. I can't live in a world where there's HiRez Rush and I can't play it.

    Can someone recommend either a low priced SACD player or a reasonably priced Universal? I could use this as an audio only player if there's a cheap player out there that's good for audio but so-so for video. I'd like to stay in the $500 range but I'm somewhat flexible. Cheaper is better these days.

    If they announce A Farewell to Kings and Hemispheres I'll fall out of my chair. [​IMG]

    That strikes me kind of bizarrely that they would issue the first 5 Rush albums on SACD. Why the early ones? Seems a better idea, from both a sales point AND a fan point, to release something like 2112, Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures, Signals and something else as the first five.

    Hey, I'm happy about it, don't get me wrong, but it just seems weird. I mean, "Take a Friend" in multi-channel SACD? Come on. [​IMG]

    Two weeks ago I paid 32.00 for an MFSL CD of Yellow Brick Road on Ebay. This is truly great news. Seeing YBR is on the Island label, maybe just maybe some U2 SACD's are coming.

    JimC - I picked up the Pioneer Elite 45a for $300 at a Magnolia Hi Fi demo sale. I wanted to get the Denon 2900 but I couldn't justify paying another $600, even though I am sure it's a better machine.

    I agree with Zane since of the first 5 I will only be buying 2112. Bring on Moving Pictures and Signals and maybe a good Greatest Hits.

    Thanks Larry. I've been over in A/V sources since that post and the 45a is currently on my short list. The 222es and the new 563a are also on that list. I'm looking at this as a audio only player so I don't really care about any of the video qualities.

    As for which Rush albums are released first, I have no problem with it being the first 5. I'm part of the minority that really likes Caress of Steel. Fly by Night and 2112 are high on my list as well. I'll buy the other two, but they won't get too much play.

    I will be picking up Elton John, and a couple of the Rush titles, and probably the Sting album as well. [​IMG] Universal and [​IMG] for more hi-res releases

    This is great news! I'm just hoping that Universal gets around to releasing Rush Moving Pictures and Sting Dream of the Blue Turtles on SACD...and soon!
