    I almost got the xrcd! I think I'll hold off until I near which format. I hoping SACD, as Mark's latest (Shangra-La) (sp?) is available as a hybrid overseas.

    Since this was one of the first digital recordings, I wonder whether the sonics can be improved much by doing it in SACD. Would it have to be converted from PCM format? I would not care much for a surround version, but I would certainly like to hear this in hi-rez stereo.

    Hope it's a hybrid! That way I can get all my Mark Knopfler hybrid stuff in one take!

    Note: Shouldn't HighFidelityReview.com be all over this story as well?!

    Excellent!!!

    I've almost pulled the trigger on the XRCD a dozen times. Now I'm glad I waited :thumbsup:

    BTW, the Shangri-La SACD is marvelous. Music is pretty good and the sonics are amazing. Very warm and lush sounding.

    This is fantastic news! SACD to boot! This is one I would buy at any cost! (Heck, I spent $30 for the Shangra-La SACD!) Hopefully, it will be sold as an SACD here in the US. If not, get those "import" orders ready!

    I hope it "sounds" good! :D

    :confused: That's kind of an odd comment for someone who started a thread and petition to save SACD.

    Indeed. Recorded on a Sony 24 track digital recorder at Air Studios, Montserrat. That recorder was probably using 44.1 kHz sampling, 16 bit word length, but I can't find a definitive statement on the Web. Anyone?

    It will be interesting to hear it against my XRCD.

    I hope it's a big seller and encourages Dire Straits to crank out those analogue recordings of their previous (and better sounding) albums on SACD.

    Amazon.uk is listing an "import" which is a CD + DVD Audio 2 disc set.

    What I've read it is a 44.1/16 recording.

    Well, I've read people saying that (for example, see AA) and I'm almost prepared to believe it.
