    That is great news Ric, thanks for the update!!

    Hopefully the players will become cheaper for us common folk, and availability in Canada improves...

    Thanks.

    Good to hear there will be some more manufacturers of SACD players out there besides Sony and Philips. Hopefully this will bring prices down while keeping a high quality of product.

    I still think it has to be on the forfront to

    have both SACD and DVD audio in one unit.

    Since noone posted the actual first batch of titles that UMG will release, I figure I would:

    Diana Krall - The Look of Love
    Andrea Bocelli - Cieli di Toscana
    Ja Rule - Pain Is Love
    Shelby Lynne - Love Shelby
    John Coltrane - A Love Supreme
    ET - The 20th Anniversary Soundtrack
    Steely Dan - Gaucho
    The Allman Brothers Band - Live at the Fillmore East
    Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong - Ella & Louis
    Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto - Getz & Gilberto
    Muddy Waters - Folksinger
    There are some really good titles here. UMG will be off to an excellent start with regards to SACD.

    Quick question. Will SACD players go the single digital out, sometime soon, instead of 6 analog outs?

    John,

    I think I read that they are testing the system with the release of the Fast and Furious soundtrack. Supposedly, and I am not sure about the accuracy of the info, the CD will not play in computers, CD Burners, or DVD players.

    This is what makes the copyprotected CDs so bad.

    Hope this helps.

    George: if you are sure of this, I'm gonna go to Best Buy and buy every one that they have in stock. Then, I'm gonna open them up, and then take them back for a refund since they are faulty CDs which will not play on my DVD player or computer CD player. If we all do this, this BS will stop pretty quickly and Universal will lose a ton of money. If anyone knows for sure about the Fast and Furious Soundtrack please LMK.
