I think BMG said they had sold about a million of the Living Stereo
series all told so far. Sorry, I can't reember where I read that.

Maybe if they made the slightest attempt to market the SACD, it might
sell a bit better. 99% of potential customers have never heard of it.

The other problem is that only well recorded content really benefits.
