    Didn't know whether to post this here (with more Pink Floyd fans) or over at the TV/HD section, but PINK FLOYD The Wall will be shown on INHD. Even though I have the fine DVD, seeing it in high def may bring out some more details. Got my DVR ready for this one! [​IMG] [​IMG] Please move to right forum if necessary.

    I saw some of it when they played it a few months ago.
    Looks like an upconvert to me, but I could be mistaken.

    Dang. And I thought this was something about a DVD-A or SACD release of the Wall... [​IMG]

    Kevin,

    Guthrie keeps hinting some more Floyd will be out on SACD....maybe you will be pleasantly surprised.

    I hope so. I'd like a few more Pink Floyd SACDs, and a Genesis SACD or two to come out so I can beat the "SACD is dead" people over the head with them. [​IMG]

    I'm already beating them over the head with my new Dire Straits Brothers in Arms SACD. [​IMG]

    Lee:

    Euro import, since it's not on Warner. The US WB Release will be on either DualDisc or Double Disc, I'm not sure which. Since Brothers in Arms is a native PCM recording, it will sound its best delivered as PCM. I expect that'll be out in the US in another month or so, but I haven't gotten a firm date out of my WB contact. I think the asking price of $35 + S/H is a bit steep anyway, so I'll just wait for the WB US Releases.

    On a side note, I got the Sailing to Philadelphia and Shangri-La Double Disc packages this week. Very nicely recorded on StP even though it is "only" 48K for the surround tracks. I haven't gotten to Shangri-La just yet. It'll be sometime next week before I get around to it.

    Shangri-La sounds good in Super Audio also John. [​IMG]

    The best discs would be to do the analog tape sessions Knopfler did early on and transfer them to DSD.

    I'm starting to believe that DSD can enhance PCM recordings though. The Norah Jones SACD does have some more presence over the redbook despite the 16/44 limitations.
