    Keith, second that. I would very much like "Bringing Down the Horse" to be on SACD, for I feel that's the only Wallflowers album to be worth it's salt, and it's a great record (flame away!).

    I am not a huge Gabriel or Police fan, but will definately be exploring some of these SACD's upon their release, especially "So".

    Well, crap. I just bought the remastered Peter Gabriel 1,2,3 & Security. And I'd hate to give up Message in a Box. Decisions, decisions...

    Very good news indeed. Universal doesn't have The Police listed as coming soon on their new formats site. They do have some February and March releases listed now, and it looks like The Who have slipped to Febrauary now instead of coming out next week as was up on their site last week. At least these discs are now in the pipeline, and as always hopefully we get them sooner then later.

    If the Police discs are indeed Hybrids, I will be picking most if not all of them up. Either way, I really like Universal's pricing scheme for single layer and Hybrid discs.

    Yeah, OK, right after I just shelled out the cash for the remastered CDs. Yeah, that's smart marketing... [​IMG]

    Kevin,
    Yes, it is smart marketing. They got you to spend your money on their discs once. Now they'll get you to do it again. [​IMG]
    Evan,
    I don't have the other Wallflowers albums, but Bringing Down the Horse is excellent. I'd love to hear it on SACD. Oh, please, please. [​IMG]
    Justin,
    Could you post a link to Universal's "New Formats" release list? With all the great stuff Universal is releasing, I think I should have that site bookmarked. Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Keith here is the link:

    Place your pointer over the SACD logo to get a menu. At the top of the Releases page there is a link to those titles coming soon.

    I am very glad that I didn't buy andy of the Gabriel remasters because of the SACD rumors. Can't wait for multichannel "Security".

    Lots of buzz about big Sony announcement on Friday...
    Can't wait to hear if new titles or marketing plans get announced.

    I hope they announce all future releases will be hybrids along with some new SACD player releases.

    Some have complained that the new CD remasters sound more compressed than the original releases. Let's hope that this is not the case for the SACDs.

    And yes, it was very poor form to release new CD remasters less than a year before hi-res remasters.

    Lots more 'Home Theater in a Box' systems coming for high-res audio.
    I noticed a week ago at Best Buy that Sony is pushing a $600 HTiaB for SACD (with this feature noted prominently). I guess it is the beginning of a trend.
    If these Gabriel discs are single-layer, I'm not buying. [​IMG]

    Kinda getting away from the original subject, but I clicked on the link provided by Justin (thanks!), and saw that Zenith announced an universal player (the DVB318) for under $200. Am I the only one who read that??
