    Doug, "Frampton Comes Alive" is slated for DVD-A release as well as SACD.

    When it comes to choice between the two, SACD usually gets my money every time.

    Well, I understood the Frampton is a single layer disc and those discs aren't the problem even with the Crest discs.

    If a disc is a surround release, here is my preference:

    1) DVD-A
    2) non-Crest hybrid SACD
    3) non-hybrid SACD

    Crest hybrid = no buy.

    If a disc is stereo-only, here is my preference:

    1) non-Crest hybrid SACD
    2) DVD-A
    3) non-hybrid SACD

    Since the Frampton disc is surround, and available in both formats, I'll get DVD-A.

    I'm on the fence. I'll proably buy a copy of the SACD though. I have several copies of the vinyl record...

    I like this album...Z93 plays it often here in Atlanta. I will pick up the SACD when out.

    I already have this disc, but haven't listened to it yet.

    I can confirm, though, that it is a single layer 2-SACD set... and the discs ARE NOT pressed by Crest.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
