    Universal screwed up big time by not including the 5.1 mix of the album on their 2013 HFPA Blu-Ray release, but that was back when they thought that no one really wanted surround sound on these HFPA Blu-Ray discs. Boy, were they wrong…

    Let's petition MOFI to include this award winning surround mix!

    You're wasting your time. In the past, every time I petition MoFi to include a surround mix on their SACDs their reply is the same: WE DON'T DO SURROUND.

    While I somewhat agree with your philosophy, Francois, I was told that MoFi prefers to do everything 'in house' and their mastering facilities are stereo/mono only. The few multichannel SACDs which MoFi produced were outsourced and the higher cost of licensing the multichannel layer is another deterrent.

    While we can expect a few more mch titles from Audio Fidelity and the occasional multichannel release from Analogue Productions, our present hope is England's Dutton Vocalion......who I hope in the future releases more popular titles other than easy listening but again, they are catering to their customer base and based on [robust?] sales of their upcoming Tower of Power and Main Ingredient QUAD SACDs, hopefully more popular fare will be on the horizon.

    Boy, I really hate MOFI. I really do.
    Here's another missed opportunity (like "Layla"):
    http://store.acousticsounds.com/d/12...id_Stereo_SACD

    Like many of you know, this album has an amazing surround mix that has been out of print for quite some time.
    This would have been a perfect opportunity to reissue and include the surround mix on this new SACD, but alas, I guess some things will never change, will they?


    Surround yourself with the best.

    That is a big reason why Mobile Fidelity does not release Surround SACDs.
