That matches what I'd be tempted to say also, whether we're talking about multi-channel classical/orchestral music - or the War of the Worlds SACD and the preferred mode of listening.
For the information of a previous poster, there are absolutely loads of classical/orchestral SACDs available (and still being released) with multi-channel mixes. This genre certianly isn't being overlooked - just don't expect the same type of mixes as other types of music, e..g. Pink Floyd or Kraftwerk!
