Friends, Exciting breaking news here: There is a confirmed by several sources story (datelined for tomorrow, reported by Peter van Willenswaard) on Stereophile's website that Universal is going to cease production of regular CDs and start producing hybrid discs for all NEW titles. See www.stereophile.com/shownews.cgi?1353 This is definitely great news for those of us who love the format. It is speculated that the strong copy protection of SACD played a role here. (sort of a mixed bag for sure on this specific issue) This has got to mean that... (1) Universal is going to focus on catalog titles more for SACD, and (2) another blow has been dealt to DVD Audio (3) prices will drop with more capacity and Sony plant additions ('bout time!) What are your thoughts? Administrator: Can I edit the title to "shocker"?
