    Can anyone confirm this recently released hybrid SACD title does in fact have a multichannel mix as well as stereo on it?

    I'm seeing it listed mostly as a 'Hybrid Stereo' though SACD Info says it should be a Stereo/Multichannel. On the other hand they also say it should be a single layer, which it thankfully apparently isn't.

    I don't see the point of Gaye in MC. My bed isn't in the middle of the HT.

    The Universal website says it's MC/Stereo/Hybrid.

    Harry Weinger, who produces all of the Motown reissues, said that the 5.1 mix for the Let's Get it On SACD was supervised by original album engineer Cal Harris. It is definitely a multi-channel release. There are no bonus tracks like on the current redbook CD or Deluxe Edition, though.

    Regards,

    To remove all doubt if any still exists: I own it. It is multichannel/stereo/hybrid.
