    Perhaps a more appropriate thread title may have been

    "The Who: Tommy Coming To Super Audio And DVD-A! [​IMG]

    Can't wait to hear it in either format! [​IMG]

    Universal+Hybrid+Crest=DVD-A

    Is it possible that some other company will press these SACD's??
    Unless someone(Crest,Universal)addresses the shoddy cracking crap they have pushed on the consumers, I and many others in the know will stay far away.......

    I'll be buying the DVD-A (that Lee doesn't mention for some reason). Until the Crest/cracking situation has been fully resolved, I'm sticking to DVD-A whenever possible.

    I'm hearing the Dylan discs are probably pressed in Terre Haute [​IMG], but the upcoming Universal discs should be presumed to be Crest until demonstrated otherwise.

    I AM surprised no one has commented on the David Bowie albums-these are some of my favorites. [​IMG]

    And they are hybrids so Rachael should be happy...

    The 'Tommy' DVD-A was mentioned days ago (elsewhere, and buried in a HFR article) but there isn't a DVD-A cheerleader that corresponds to Mr. Moura at HFR.

    Neither has a release date yet.

    Yep, Lee already posted this 2 weeks ago in John K.'s "Universal DVD-Audio press release." thread. I'm sure I'll end up buying both the DVD-A & the SACD.

    DVDA for me if the SACD turns out to be a Crest cracker.

    How about Quadrophenia? I've always loved it more than Tommy. Can you imagine how it would sound in MCH w/ all the horns, strings, ARPS, waves, etc.? I wonder: was it ever released in quad?

    Lee, those aren't my favorite Bowie albums. I'd love to hear the Berlin trilogy in SACD: Low, Heroes, Lodger.

    I'm concerned about Crest crackers, too, but the only cracker I've gotten so far is DSotM. My Up is fine so far; I'm awaiting Avalon from amazon.fr & hope it's not cracked.

    Cheers,
    Doug

    I will be getting Tommy on DVD-Audio if the SACD is a Crest cracker. If the SACD is not a Crest product, I may get both versions. The DVD-Audio disc could have some cool graphics. [​IMG]

    The Bowie SACDs is very good news. However, of all the stuff Manilow has done, why are we getting a Christmas album? [​IMG]
