    Congrats!

    I don't know much about SACD, etc, but looks like a good site for finding music stuff, so i've added it to faves.

    PS Out of curiosity, did you ever get the Kyu Sakomoto disk ?
    I got the Sukiyaki 2000 disk for fun, but it was a little disappointing [​IMG]

    I haven't been able to get my hands on any Japanese pop SACDs yet, although I am very interested in some of the titles I've read about on the internet. I wonder how much J-pop SACDs are, given the seemingly high prices of J-pop redbook CDs.

    Congrats! Having just dived into the SACD/DVDA waters, HFR.com has recently become a fav site.

    I first contacted Brian regarding Warner Bros., a DVD-A proponent, issuing SACDs in Hong Kong. With the startup of production of SACDs at a Hong Kong plant, I can see releases on hybrid SACD increasing, for both HK local titles and Western titles.

    Hmmm... is there any possibility that we could get Warner SACD imports of current/future Warner DVD-A titles? Off the top of my head, I'd like all the Grateful Dead titles they own, the Bjork catalog, the Laurie Anderson catalog, some Paul Simon...

    As far as I know, Warner HK is only issuing its local titles on SACDs. Otherwise, Warner titles are DVD-A. I don't think any of of the HK major labels is issuing anything on DVD-A.

    If you go to yesasia.com, there are HK-issued SACDs and XRCDs, but no DVD-As.

    But then HK is an extremely small market, although some of the audiophiles there are fanatics to the extreme.

    Thanks Keith!

    I will keep everyone aware of anything significant going on over there. The CCR SACD from Naxos, for example. Thanks for the scope on that.

    I may be heading to HK at the end of March, so maybe I will pick up some exciting SACD releases over there. My poor credit card [​IMG]

    There's always that Beatles "2" CD (encoded in HDCD) that I saw a couple of years back in mainland China. Of course, it's a pirated CD [​IMG]
