Wondering who else still collects SACDs...
They have always been a specialty item, and remain one. Not sure I would have ever called them popular as a format. Some of the individual titles are popular albums in any format.
So I would call them a popular audiophile and collector's item when the title is popular enough.
Prices have dropped to a certain degree on many of the higher-end collector's SACDs, but not bottomed out or fallen out of favor with folks who always liked the format.
DVD-A titles have come down in asking prices as well. But they are still in some demand.
I expect both SACD and DVD-A disc to remain collectible, and to always fetch more than the CD issues of a given album. But the peak asking prices of ten years ago may not be coming back for various reasons.
They weren't popular 16 years ago, let alone today.
Classical music SACDs are still popular and widely available.
Rock albums are the hottest market by far. Throw in surround mix (or old quad) done with care, and yeah it will sell in limited numbers for sure.
I dig SACDs. Of course, the mastering is the most important, but that format helps a bit extra when having good audio gear.
Not at all, not worth a dime!
I'll take all of yours off of your hands for $10 each.
(kidding of course)
I've recently rekindled an interest in SACDs and bought about 75 in the past few weeks
Niche item, primarily for rock and jazz. The main vendors are Mobile Fidelity (via Music Direct) and Analogue Productions (via Acoustic Sounds).
$11.50 - final offer!
(wait - you only have the Meat Loaf? Awww, I've already got that one... )
I get my SACDs in the media section at Walgreens
Was that SACD's, or STD's...?
Very funny guys...
lol so the answer is a resounding YES!!
