I suddenly realized I have two SACD players (original 60GB PS3 and new Oppo Blu-ray) and figured I'd give it a shot. My favorite artist is Peter Gabriel so I ordered So and Up on eBay. I ordered an import hybrid So new, but it came with no shrink wrap. When I asked the seller about the switch, she said that imports sometimes come without shrink wrap.


My question is, is this plausible? A Google search pulls up simialr claims by import companies, but it seems like a bit of a collective scam.

About those Peter Gabriel hybrid SACD releases:


One thing to look out for is the sticker on the front of the super jewel case. I have yet to see a shrinked wrapped Peter Gabriel SACD, but those that are genuine do have that sticker on the front. It's square and states "hybrid SACD" or something along those lines.


Again, lots of CD releases over here leave the factory without being sealed. It's actually an effective way to avoid unnecessary damage to our environment. Unnecessary in that any seal can be faked by questionable sellers.
