It would seem that MovieMars has one SACD in stock again

I am 1000% with you on surround mixes. I even went so for as to install 120 degree monopole surround speakers identical to my LCR. THese are in addition to the full-blown 7.1 surround array with Tripoles. The rear surrounds are inactive with 5.1 content and I MANUALLY swap the side surround dipoles for the 120 degree monopoles at the wallplates for "in the band" content. To really make this all ideal, I have different Audyssey calibrations I load depending on the content I am using.

If a movie or concert video or a TV show isn't on blu ray it darn well should be.
