    Nope !!! Check Sony's master tape policy.

    Oki. Thought maybe that long ago they got access to the masters.
    But thanks :)

    There will be a code in the dead wax on the SACD. Once you find it you can look it up.

    Yes!
    The code is IFPI L558 which corresponds to Sony DADC Austria.
    Not surprised.

    Anyone think the MoFi analog/DSD controversy will result in increased sales of their SACDs?

    LOL. The thought also crossed my mind. I kinda wish it were true.

    I think the vinyl heads are being ungrateful, cry babies. They are essentially getting their limited resolution format improved by being cut from a sonically superior one (DSD). Yet the (free) gift has not been received well. Egos are imploding! Lot's of tears are being shed over spilled milk!

    I think so. I was also hoping it might create a market demand for 4x DSD download files, or possibly on a blu-ray like the PCM files on Reference Recording’s HRx series were on DVD :love:

    Oh, the drama! Anyway, I will keep doing my best to keep SACDs alive by actively purchasing them.

    I only watched the initial video from the first post but LMAO
    I was never into vinyl because the whole culture is full of snake oil, the only thing I like about people being into vinyl again is that it's bringing young people into listening to the sound of the music they love (and ideally, urging them to train their ears, maybe get better speakers etc...)

    I do like DSD on the other hand. But I'd never go convincing people that it sounds inherently better, I go into it to satisfy my archival OCD - I always want to have the best available digital release that hasn't been rewashed a dozen times, and since SACDs generally stem from the original tapes, I go for that. Can I hear that it's sourced from the original? Absolutely not
    I personally think the mastering is the alpha and omega, the rest is less important, be it PCM or DSD

    With 3 1/2 months left in 2022, the tally at hraudio.net already surpassed a 400 titles increase since the beginning of this year. There is a very good change that 2022's total new releases will surpass that of 2021.

    Btw, Japan Universal Music just announced a 30+ titles reissue campaign that see many Deutsche Grammophon titles and J-pop titles getting the SACD treatment.

  13. The few SACDs that I have sound great. I can hear the difference between these and the stock cds. Can's Ege Bamyasi sounds terrific on SACD and is far cheaper than buying an original copy or even an analogue reissue. I'd love to see more releases.

    This was far too reasonable. I wanted an argument!

    Is there a list of what those title will be? I did a search for it, but failed miserably. I’m interested in what the DG titles are.

    FINE!!!1!!1!! I'll cram an argument into one sentence: Expensive speaker cables make my MQA Beatles remasters sound better than my DSD-sourced vinyl rips, but of course, the original Japanese pressings sound the best :D

    My good friend @bruce2 just shared the news with me that Analogue Productions will be releasing the Steely Dan catalogue on 9 Hybrid SACDs.

    With this announcement, AP's (imminent) release of Pink Floyds "Animals" on SACD and the re-release of Michael Jackson's Thriller (the biggest selling album of all time) on SACD (by Mobile Fidelity), it seems that the SACD format is indeed undergoing a "resurgence." 2022 may be the biggest year for SACD yet!

    PS:
    I see that Pink's Floyd's "Animals" has been released today by Analogue Productions on Hybrid-SACD:

    You forgot to mention the 6 Van Halen SACDs and 2 more Eagles SACDs from MoFi.

    I also think there will be at least one more SACD release from Intervention Records for this year. I just received the SACD of Joe Jackson's "Summer in The City" from IR.
