    The market power of the LP Record

    Yes you need to be very careful with SACD purchases...I should know! One of the best suppliers of SACD's is CD Japan...their SHM-SACD format is just superb and not over the top price wise. I am playing "The Wonderful World of Female Vocals" SACD....fabulous! Full stop! Go to Elusivedisc.com if you want it.

    The market power of the LP Record

    I spent 4 days with some relatives who are "IF IT MOVES DIGITIZE IT!" type people. The shelves in the lounge were bulging with their CD Collection (its all on a 4Tb Hard Drive now). I asked them "what are you going to do with those?" NO ANSWER! About 25 to 30 metres of shelf space holding up hundreds of never to be used again CD's. I have sold quite a few CD's / SACD lately ; I was asked "why are you selling them".....money.........I don't play them any more. The look I got was a bit weird.

    The market power of the LP Record

    The whole area of downloads and CD ripping and also making digital "copies" of the LP itself is a bit odd to me. I have a big collection of CD's and SACD; why would I want to duplicate them and load them onto a hard-drive. The novelty of having my music collection on say my iPhone ? I think I am missing something; a "brain" probably!
  5. Looking at the "COMING SOON" section of the www.acousticsounds.com" there are 226 LP Releases coming out in the next 3/4 months versus only 10 SACD releases (all but one of them is a Classical title) and 1 only CD. For an Aussie to do any Pre-ordering you would be looking at serious FEDEX damage as well as buying in USDollars. Same situation at the other 2 MUSIC DIRECT and ELUSIVE DISC. I'm no marketing guru but there is obviously a massive market for LP's in the USA and throughout the world. Just looking at some of the LP titles that are unlikely to be released on SACD makes a digital disc turner grind his teeth. Cheers

    I bought a copy of REFLECTION by Brian Eno on UHQCD just waiting for the Japanese crew to do Ambient 2 on UHQCD. Interesting to read about how Eno got the idea to record this type of music. Apparently he was off colour and listening to music at low level with only one headphone cup working. Doesn't sound like a winning formula. Wonder if Bryan Ferry will have him in the band when he tours Australia. Cheers
