    That's it. Is there a list online of Non-Hybrid SACD?

    My James Taylor's Hourglass (outstanding album) SACD arrived yesterday and it got me thinking how many other Non-Hybrid discs are out there?

    Is it now a thing of the past? (I hope so). All new SACDs are Hybrid right? It's so much nicer being able to own just one copy of the album.

    A lot of the early SACDs were NOT hybrid discs and they usually were US imports like Hourglass.

    Also many SACDs were re-issued as Hybrids for the UK/Euro market. The Peter Gabriel back cat was issued as SACDs only in the US but hybrids in the UK (this may have changed now).

    Saying all that I haven't seen a SACD only disc in years.

    www.sa-cd.net has pretty much every SACD ever made. I can't seem to find lists for hybrids/multichannels etc., but if you're looking for something in particular, all titles come with logos next to them saying whether they are Hybrid/Multichannel

    Thanks both.

    I use SACD.net every now and again. It's a useful site.

    It's a pity no one has started a DVD-A site.

    p.s - The "Single Layer" option on that site looks to give all Non-Hybrid SACD cool.
