I don't think there is any SACD manufacturing in the USA. THere was capability at Sony's Indiana 
plant when SACD first came out, but as I understand it, only Sony Japan still has SACD 
manufacturing. The discs made in Austria were made by BMG. Universal briefly made SACD in Germany.

Along the lines of where disks are manufactured, the three SACDs I got from Amazon of Van Cliburn 
and Strauss all had "MADE IN AUSTRIA" on their seals.  Still waiting for "MADE IN U.S.A.".
