There are a number of roadblocks preventing the release of back catalogue titles in QUAD as I was led to believe: If MoFi or AP have released current stereo SACDs AF won't touch them....professional courtesy, I surmise.

It's more a case of looking for titles to bring to SACD that haven't recently been released on SACD to maximize sales and insure a return on the upfront investment (licensing costs, cost to press "X" number of SACDs in the agreement,etc.)

I have the DVD Audio. The stereo is superb but the surround is sublime IMHO. One of my favourite DVD Audios.

Not a big fan of Audio Fidelity due to their underhand marketing tactics - E.G. The 2 Yes SACD releases were marketed as being limited to 5000 numbered edition. Bulls~@t! the first 5000 copies had a numbered sticky label on the outer cardboard cover the rest didn't. There was nothing limited about it apart from a sticky label. Highly misleading and a marketing ploy to get the item demand up prior to release.

I have to agree with onenairb. I stopped buying AF releases, cause they sound thin to me. period.

So, let me get this straight.

AF actually made MORE than 5000 SACDs. And...

You are complaining.

LOL!


I hope you enjoy paying OOP prices.

David, if you've followed the various posts regarding the superlatives afforded AF releases on this and QuadraphonicQuadforum then you have to ask yourself a simple question:

Is is ME?

Try either a bass boost or raise the volume. The AF multichannel releases are encoded at low levels and by raising the volume you should get extremely satisfactory sonics. I find this to be true for MOST mch SACDs (whether popular or classical).
