No. No surround mixes on that set.
Definitive perhaps, but no more definitive than the stereo and 5.1 found in the Immersion set. SACD is the same mastering - just converted to DSD.
I find I’m liking a lot the Mastersound releases. They hit sound rich and warm to me
So has ANYTHING been done with The Wall other than the MFSL? It almost seems like it’s avoided
I'm perfectly content with my 48DP.
I’m gonna show my newbieness here.. but what exactly is 48DP?
It refers to the 1988 Japanese CD pressing of The Wall with the spine/catalog number 48DP-5007.
Anyone know if music direct or acoustic sounds charges your card before the items ship on pre-orders?
Music Direct doesn't. I imagine Acoustic Sounds is the same, but haven't ordered from them in awhile.
There’s no way to preorder WYWH yet, correct?
Nor does there seem to be a way to know when it’s available. Is this true?
I check their web site for new listings occasionally but haven't seen anything yet on PF.
Does anyone know if these are going to be new master or if they are reissues of the previous SACDs?
Million dollar question.
If they're reissued then I'm good, already have 'em.
The general rule of practice is "Charge" when the item is shipped. Been my experience with MD & AP as far as I know. Ideally when you get that "Shipping Confirmation "EMAIL , you've been charged by then.
Best practice is to invoice after it shipped. Unfortunately many resellers are not following this practice and even invoice you right from the pre-order confirmation.
Does it matter if an invoice is generated after preordering? It shouldn't matter as your credit card should not be charged till the ordered items have shipped.
As the others have said, no. But if you see activity, that's just the pre-authorization, done so they know they'll get paid when they ask for it. It falls off in 2-3 days.
To add more clarity to my comment, some resellers are charging your credit card right off from the pre-order process. And yes it matters!
No resellers I've dealt with have charged my credit card when placing a preorder. Which resellers have the policy of charging credit cards when placing preorders? I ask so I'll make sure to avoid doing business with them.
According to Music Direct, the release date for both Jimi Hendrix SACD titles is August 31st:
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Axis: Bold As Love (Hybrid SACD)
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced (Stereo and Mono) (Hybrid SACD)
Acoustic Sounds shows Coming Late Summer 2018
Amazon has the release date as July 20 - https://www.amazon.com/Axis-Bold-Lo...pID=61xOhSDizXL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
Elusive disc puts the date at July 31st.
I guess no one knows for sure.
I hope they follow these up with an Electric Ladyland SACD...
Do we know who is mastering the first two, is it Kevin Gray?
