For the last couple of years, US Sony Music's SACD output has been limited to a couple of "re-performance" SACDs and some RCA Living Stereo SACD titles. Looks like the Living Stereo SACD series is done since no new releases are planned (and I'd encourage SACD fans to pick up these wonderful sounding SACDs). Just now, I received an e-mail from Zenph Studios, which produced the 2 "re-performance" SACDs (Glenn Gould and Art Tatum) with Sony, that its next "re-performance" release, "Rachmaninoff plays Rachmaninoff", will NOT be on SACD. This is apparently Sony's decision, although the e-mail indicated there may be room for negotiations. I guess US Sony Music is done with SACD....which is strange since US Sony Electronics just introduced its new $1,500 CD/SACD player (the 5400ES), not to mention several other manufacturers have announced new Blu-ray players that will include SACD playback.
