    Interesting article that shows some strong weekly sales for several Super Audio series. The DSOTM is doing very well considering it's been out a while. Hopefully this will lead to more Pink Floyd albums in Super Audio.

    This kind of performance should likely lead to more titles for us consumers over the long run.

    only in multichannel though [​IMG]

    in the future all music will be multichannel, and stereo would be a downmix by player DACs [​IMG]

    I'm also hoping SACD sells well so we can get more Classic Rock on the format.

    Of course WYWH would be awesome in SACD Surround (I have a DTS version that rocks!)

    We need THE WALL on SACD too!![​IMG]

    Yeah, the album has been doing very well since 1973...

    What we really need is a side-by-side comparision of a new album that gives consumers a choice of two formats: the CD version for $13.99 or a SACD hybrid for, say, $15.99. Then we'll have a much better idea of how many people are interested in the high rez/MC version.

    what am I missing here? if SACD and DVD-V/A are essentially using the same disc media why can't DVD-A have a Redbook layer? or was that an arbitrary decision not to have one?

    Lee thanks for the info

    I still don't see why you couldn't take a blank hybrid disc and write DVD-A onto the layer intended for SACD.. although that's me not having done any research as yet. I promise to read up and not ask silly questions [​IMG]

    I don't know jack squat in terms of DVD-A or SACD. I know I love the sound of them both; and to me, that is all that matters!


    My first choice would be Pink Floyd's "ANIMALS" album from 1977. Then WYWH and Meddle!

    ...me, I'd like to see the insainity of Spirit's FUTURE GAMES or The Dukes Of The Stratosphear's (XTC by their other name) 25 O'CLOCK in M/C hi-rez. Them's some freaky albums full of sound effects that could be very amusing in M/C hi-rez.

    ...or how 'bout some Parliment/Funkadelic/Brides Of Funkenstein or George Clinton and/or Bootsy...? Brides Of Funkenstein would be dyno-might in M/C, IMO...
