    OK, simple question: Is the new Rolling Stone's 'Hot Rocks' Vol.1 hybrid SACD a stereo or multi-channel mix?

    I've only got a stereo system right now and will just stick with my copy of the "regular" CD if the SACD mix isn't 5.1

    You'll be missing out. I never pick my software strictly by channel count. Will you regret not buying a copy down the line, if it becomes OOP? Maybe, maybe not...? The SA-CD kicks serious butt IMO. BROWN SUGAR sounds better than my pristene LD's track.

    Hasn't it become apparent that the labels are not going to struggle to make M/C mixes of everything ever recorded, yet, if ever...??? The Stones didn't want it done anyway. Great album, great sound, I'd buy it myelf, opps, I already did.[​IMG]

    Way better than the old CD in my opinion, regardless of whether you use the CD or SACD layer.

    does anyone have the london years,I've been eyeing that one, how does it compare to the cd?

    the only thing that is in Multi for the stones is the remix single of Sympathy for the Devil, which sounds fantastic. I wish they would have included it on the Rolling Stone(magazine) sampler I have, so I didnt have to skip through the silly remixes to get to it all the time.

    In my experience, the stereo SACD hybrids basically make your speakers sound like they cost three times as much. A pretty good value ratio for a $28 disc.

    The SACD hot rocks is alot better than the Abkco US hot rocks set, but not much better than the stereo London Hot Rocks from England and Europe.

    He is speaking of the CDs released under the London label in England and Europe. They were available in the US (maybe Canada too?) as imports. These releases were much better mixes than the ABCKO releases. I have Hot Rocks and have not upgraded to the SACD released however I did buy enough of the other Stones releases to have all the songs represented (except those on The London Years). In time, I will probably buy the Hot Rocks and London Years SACDs.

    Are the Stones on Laser Disc, or is that "big disc cat" thing gone to your head?[​IMG]
