    For those who like vinyl and digital depending on your preferred mastering: I already own the MSFL SACD of BIA from a couple of years ago. It sounds very nice, fuller, warmer than the original CD. Is it worth upgrading to the MFSL 45rpm given that it should feature the same mastering? Does the format (vinyl and 45rpm) provide "much" better sound?

    Music Direct sent me a shipping notification for Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms (Numbered Hybrid SACD) with a tracking number yesterday (Dec 26th). Checked today and it shows "SHIPPING LABEL CREATED, USPS AWAITING ITEM CHICAGO, IL 60660".

    The other four Dire Straits SACD's are showing backordered.

    Well, December 31 came and went, and Amazon is now showing "Temporarily out of stock." I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up. :shake:

    Will these SACDs ever come out??

    Any word on the SACD's? Are they holding them back for the RRHOF induction?

    Wow, July 31st?!?

    I thought about pulling the trigger on the SHM Platinum CD of Dire Straits and Love Over Gold as I already have the MFSL SACD of Brothers In Arms, but these are both OOP and ridiculously expensive on eBay. But I don't know if I can wait until the end of the summer for them.

    Don't hold your breath for these. Just recently while oder in one step vinyl from mofi they said they had no idea when the Dire Straits were coming out as well as Breakfast in America. Hopefully in 2018, but you never know.

    I have had the 45 rpm Brothers in Arm' for a few years, out standing by the way.

    The only shipping date I'll believe is when I get an email from Music Direct that my preorder for all of the Dire Straits MOFI SACDs have actually shipped ;). Other than that all the online "predictions" are of no value as far as I'm concerned.

    CD box set coming in April, but I don‘t know what are the sources. That means... another half year delay by Mofi :D

    If it's Rhino the sources would be BG and RL masterings.
    Half year??? More like a year and a half.

    No, you're waiting. I gave up last April, cancelled my order, and went with these superior sounding Grundmans. Life's too short for me to wait and wait for something that's supposed to be bringing me pleasure.
    Being annoyed sort of ruins the whole point.

    I have a few of the Grundmans. The pressings leave something to be desired. Besides, it's a collectors thing. 45rpm should be the cat's meow.

    How do you know the Grundman mastered Dire Straits vinyl will be "superior sounding" to the MOFI vinyl when they haven't been released yet? That's like saying the Dire Straits SHM-SACDs will sound superior to the upcoming MOFI SACDs when those haven't been released either. Yes life is short but I'm patient and have plenty of music to listen to till the Dire Straits MOFI SACDs are released :D.

    Enjoy yourself Bill, my buying more than one copy, and comparing days are over.
    I prefer to stay retired after 5 years of it, so "disposable income" is even further from my vocabulary, than it used to be.
    When I say superior now, it's a description, not a call to arms. :laugh:

    I most certainly will :). God willing and the creek doesn't rise I'll be joining the ranks of the "retired" in a few months :righton:! Hopefully "disposable income" will still in my vocabulary as it's something I'm not really willing to give up. Still have to have some fun in my twilight years ;).

    Fun in my twilight years involves my grandsons, my son, my own health, and keeping a roof over my head. Over 2200 recordings pretty much guarantees I'll never listen to it all twice before I punch out.
    Especially these days, when I'm re-watching every episode of Adam 12.
