    I'd put SA-CD's and DVD-A's in with cereal or Cracker Jacks. Now that's my kind of toy suprise![​IMG] [​IMG]

    This is daft marketing 101, what would U do? Mary Krissmuth![​IMG]

    My plan to promote high-res music is to visit my local Best Buy and Circuit City, stand in the middle of the store, and yell wildy about how cool high-res is, and that anyone who doesn't get it is a big stupid idiot-head.

    If that doesn't work, I don't know what will.

    Just put them on the McDonalds menu and they will be household names - McSACD and McDVD-A.

    and here I thought this thread was going to be about putting high res systems in stores in place of the existing muzak systems :b
    That'd be something though, imagine a high res muzak instrumental version of such class Muzak hits as "Who Can it Be Now" or Steely Dan's "Peg". Sounds like a winning idea to me [​IMG]

    WOW - I guess my post was deleted.

    Sorry if I offended anyone, but it wasn't intentional.

    Just some harmless humor.

    Again - I apologize.

    How about marketing the sacd's in drugstores? They could put them next to the viagra display, since all they seem to want to release is old catalogue titles. And yes, I'm an old fart(45) who would like to see some new music released on hi-rez.

    And at the risk of being politically incorrect, Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays to all!

    First, I would re-master some back catalog selections then release the discs to the public at inflated prices. Wait, Sony tried that! I would announce to the world that music will change forever with perfect sound forever and delay its introduction by a year. Once you purchased the discs, you need to use your TV in order to play the music...wait a minute! The DVD-A people tried that. I got it! Convince the
    kids today that MP3 is not high fidelity,it's not "good enough" for their ears and prolonged listening to MP3 audio will lead to sterility.

    And for my next trick, selling electric cars to America...

    I say let Disney promote them and they'll become Disney SA-CD and Disney DVD-Audio. Disney will release discs and then put a moratorium on each disc thereby forcing folks to buy them because they soon will no longer be available.

    Sign me up for the new gas/electric hybrid RX due out from Lexus in 2004. Same performance and great gas mileage. Electric combined with gas may yet catch on. [​IMG]

    Maybe one day hirez combined with MP3 will catch on. [​IMG]

    Lee, about 5 years ago (seems like???) Coke 12-packs had 3" CD's in them. I have some.

    Get serious[​IMG] ! Maybe somethin' like on random hamburgers...you have to lift the bun and look before you bite, no, mad cow disease has hit, on filet'o'fish sandwiches, eh? Or, in the black-eyed peas on New Year's Day, maybe?[​IMG]

    Lee, you may find yourself in the minority at that. GM can't make Hummers and Suburbans fast enough and now Nissan and Toyota have discovered what GM, Ford and Daimler Chrysler knew for years: full size trucks makes hefty profit margins. And the big 3 are rushing into a sports car horsepower race not seen since the mid-1960's.

    Anyway, back to the subject at hand: Seriously folks, both sides need aggressive ad campaign beyond print media that goes into television. I've Sony ads for their consumer electronics and not one mention of SACD, but you hear about their VAIO computer lines and television. In Sony's case, they should make the next generation Playstation 3 SACD-compatible.

    How about more magazine inserts like Rolling Stone. Very nice indeed.

    Maybe sell SACD's as ice scrapers, it is winter you know - round ice scrapers? maybe not.

    Instead of "dingle balls" from the rear view, how about dingle discs???

    I think they should just mail them to me like AOL does but this is a profit deal. Lottery boards where you pop the baloons to see if'in's you won ya an SA-CD. These used to be popular in kuntry stores....
