    Ronald, I'd always check around. One place I've been rather dissatisfied with has been www.tower.com . Back in June they had some real favorable prices on quite a few SACD's. I ordered 7. I only ever got 2 of them. They sent me the redbook of The Anthony Wilson Trio which I sent back. They were very slow to acknowledge it's return and to credit my card too. They send out these weekly e-mails claiming they are trying to get your back-ordered items. It says something along the lines of we will try to get this item for 30 days and then give up. They give up alot!
    Of my 7 disc order I got 1 disc the next week. The week after I got another and the before mentioned CD of Anthony Wilson. Then I got a whole lot of useless e-mail for 3 weeks.
    The two most reliable places that have the small label stuff in stock consistently for me are:
    www.elusivedisc.com
    www.acousticsounds.com
    They are not the cheapest but some titles can only be had at one or the other. Stuff like Analogue Productions and DMP are hard to get elsewhere, and there don't seem to be much in the way of discounts.
    I don't like Circuit City's retail stores much, but I did get 2 SACD's from them and 1 came promptly and the other was back-ordered and came about two and a half weeks later. They had some favourable prices on some titles. They're worth looking at.
    www.circuitcity.com
    If you live near a Busted Buy drop in there periodically. The prices are good but selection is spotty, at best. Best wishes!

    Ronald, www.jandr.com has good prices on some SACDs. For example, the Rolling Stones single-disc hybrids are $12.99 each. Also, the Alison Krauss + Union Station New Favorite hybrid disc is $14.99.

    Thanks for the info.

    I really like when you can narrow down the selection to SCAD only titles. The prices seem to very everywere.

    They are SACDs (Super Audio Compact Disc) not SCADs (Super Compact Audio Disc?).

    Dan, no problem. The only thing I don't like about J&R is that they are not keeping competitive in that they have no free shipping offers.

    Patric,

    Soory about the SACD not SCAD mistake. I think I have a problem there. Thanks

    Keith,

    Who give the free shipping? The price difference seems to be only a couple of dollars and free shippng would exceed that amount.

    Ronald, circuitcity.com currently has free shipping on all orders, and Amazon has free shipping on orders over $25. If you are looking to order a number of discs, look at places with free shipping. If you are only looking for one disc, it probably won't matter much. As an example, www.jandr.com has the Alison Krauss New Favorite SACD for $14.99, which is easily the lowest price I have seen. They don't have free shipping, however. J&R charges $2.95 for shipping, so the Krauss disc comes out to $17.94 delivered. You could get it from circuitcity.com for $19.99 with free shipping. So, you don't save much on one disc in going with J&R. However, the shipping charges through J&R might add up if you were to order a lot of stuff.

    Dan, thanks for the information. That's definitely worth noting.
