    There was a rumor about Tool doing their entire catalog on vinyl. Some current releases are either rare and expensive or on yuck sounding picture discs or you have to go bootleg. That never happened & if that's not happening to a market way bigger (vinyl vs SACD) I doubt SACD is ever going to happen.

    I'd love to see the #s on how much this VH SACD run is costing vs how many copies sell.

    I would never count on Tool releasing SACD’s, doesn’t mean I don’t want it to happen.. The fact that they are leaving money on the table from vinyl (because all would sell out quickly) just shows they don’t need it or care. But they will sell 700 posters per show for $100-$300 (and they go quick) makes no sense to me at all..

    The VH SACD’s will sell out, and so will the vinyl… I myself will buy all of it, but I’m a huge DLR VH Fan..

    Lateralus has an HDCD layer, I think that's the closest we'll ever get 😔

    Give Music Direct a call. I currently have 14 One Steps on preorder. Not sure if they handle the SACDs differently than the vinyl.

    I just signed up to be notified for all when they went on sale.
    I may call to see if they are allowing pre orders

    One thing to be cautious of. If you preorder directly thru Mobile Fidelity they will charge your CC when they take the preorder. Music Direct charges your CC when they ship.

    Awesome! Thanks for the info Ivan. I would have probably missed the opportunity before they sold out.

    I ordered the full set of SACD’s and my three favorite on vinyl, Debut, WACF, and Fair Warning.. I will probably regret not doing the full set of vinyl down the road, but oh well, that’s a good chunk of change..

    I feel the price will only go up on these. Yes it's not inexpensive but I feel in the long run we saved money.


    Ps.
    Knowing my luck next year they'll be selling for $8 each
