2000th Super Audio CD Released: Beyoncé and Jamie Cullum Among Artists Released Print E-mail
Tuesday, 04 May 2004
The 2000th Super Audio CD (SACD) title has now been released – a major breakthrough in the acceptance of this music format. Jamie Cullum’s highly acclaimed album “Twentysomething” has just been made available on SACD joining a host of international artists to embrace the new musical format as it comes of age. Additional artists like Diana Krall and Beyoncé are also planning to release their albums on SACD. The catalog of CD discs now encompasses all genres of music including pop, jazz, classical and rap. With her remixed SACD album Dangerously in Love due for release on May 10, 2004 Beyoncé explains: “I put this music on and I’m overwhelmed with emotion. Super Audio CD offers a new, more personal experience.”

“We’re now seeing dedicated space for SACD in record stores such as Virgin and HMV, Tower, Fnac and Media market, but also within the many small independent stores,” explains Sony's European SACD Business Centre Director, David Walstra. “There are now over 400 SACD listening posts in record stores across Europe, enabling consumers to experience the supreme sound quality of SACD in surround sound.”

Artists and labels have seen a reative amount of success with surround sound mixes by Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan and Elton John. SACD gives the artist an opportunity to offer fans more value, and in turn enables the record company to effectively create a new product and therefore increase sales. As a result, over 100 SACD albums are now being released per month.

To meet increasing demand, the disc manufacturers have tooled up to triple and potentially quadruple the amount of production lines for SACD.
