    Thanks for the update, soundboy..

    Fortunately, I have both on multichannel SACD.

    Apparently, a reissue of Billy Joel's "The Stranger" on single-layer stereo SACD is also coming.

    Are we absolutely certain that the Celine Dion and Carole King SACDs are stereo only?
    Look at the pictures for these SACDs on preorder from amazon.com:
    https://www.amazon.com/All-Way-Decad...dp/B0000635ZN/
    https://www.amazon.com/Tapestry/dp/B00005UOU7/

    Coming soon in 2017: "Songs from the Wood" (Jethro Tull); "Misplaced Childhood" (Marillion); "Eye in the Sky" (The Alan Parsons Project) and "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"

    Front and Rear of both upcoming HK SACDs indeed indicate multichannel. As far as being single~layered, that part might be questionable. But it would be great having these mch gems available again and of course those who buy their discs from either ImportCD or Deep Discount should expect them to hover around the $28~$32 price point.

    Good sleuthing, rt!

    Wonder if the upcoming HK SACD of Billy Joel "The Stranger" will also be multichannel?

    And, if so, perhaps another conduit for Santana multichannel SACD releases! Sony HK did, after all, release a Best of SANTANA collection last year, albeit in Stereo [and ALL HK Universal/SONY SACDs are pressed in Japan].

    Looks like the artwork from the Original Sony Music Japan Single Layer Multichannel SACD series.
    They may be reissues in the truest sense of the term - Multichannel and Single Layer.

    Billy Joel, Carole King, Celine Dion

    That's a pretty feeble preliminary description, lacking details or even an image of the actual item. I realize it's an 'import' but that's all the more reason to have a good description at those prices.

    Agreed. And I wouldn't purchase unless it's confirmed that it is indeed multichannel. I did check out HRAudio.net and CDJapan and neither lists this upcoming release.

    But again, SONY hasn't produced any single layered SACDs since way back in the early 00's so perhaps they're competing with Universal's single layered SHM~SACDs.

    As bmoura pointed out: the mch stickers on the HK import of Tapestry [displayed in the AmazonUS listing] sport the original 2000 ones so unless it's absolutely confirmed it is a single layered mch SACD, BUYER BEWARE!

    It would also be desirable to know whether it's a NEW DSD remaster from the original analogue tapes or the original 2000 DSD remaster.

    I must admit, the photo looks like it came from 2000. I have an original 2.0 sacd in cardboard sleeve, hybid-
    confused as to why it's only hybrid. anyone get it yet?

    I took a chance on this and it's on its way from ImportCD. Will let you know hopefully by the end of the week.

    I am very suspicious that this is an official Sony release. On eBay there are other Sony SACDs that are numbered such as Celine Dion's greatest hits and Billy Joel's The Stranger which recently surfaced. Has Sony Music ever issued limited edition numbered releases? I am not aware of any such cases.

    The font used to mark the number just seems too generic for lack of a better description.

    I still cannot fathom to this day why these reissue companies are so damn secretive about their hi res releases, including Audio Fidelity. These are, after all, 'specialized' titles and why they cannot state upon pre~announcement/pre~order PRECISELY what we are getting for our hard~earned $$$$. Checked again over at HRAudio.net and they have NO listing for ANY of the pre~announced HK SONY SACDs. Are they Stereo, single~layered Stereo/Multi.....Are they DSD mastered from old masters or new DSD masterings done in 2016~2017?

    It's not as though these are mass produced items........they are, after all, speciality items.

    Frankly, all this secrecy for these new SACDs is utter BULLSHIT and serves NO purpose other than to confuse potential buyers. Enough, already! And this conundrum extends to DVD~A/DVD~V releases which are sometimes mislabeled. Are they MLP DVD~As or DTS/DD?

    Perhaps we need a Wikileaks forum just for new Hi Res releases!!!!!!!!! http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/tNsLYBOfyQY/maxresdefault.jpg

    I just received this and it is indeed 5.1. I have nothing to compare it to, as the last time I purchased this was a Q8 tape in the 70's (with the awful reverb).
    It sounds great and it probably is the same mix as the previous SACD.

    So, based on post saying it's multi-channel. I ordered a copy from ImportCD (on backorder). Came to $33 shipped. I don't own this, so an easy purchase for me.

    It sounds great and it probably is the same mix as the previous SACD.

    Thanks for this post. Without it (and some helpful commentary on the album's thread on the QQ forum) I don't think I'd have pulled the trigger. I'm curious, though: your image indicates stereo and 5.1, as opposed to importCDs' image which specifies single-layer multi-channel. Either way, I'm looking forward to filling this inexplicable gap on my heavily "vintage singer-songwriter" shelf.

    Now the wait to find out how long importcds has it on backorder. I've never pre-/backordered from them so I'll find out soon whether they charge upon order or upon shipment.
