MOFI release a lot, keep an eye on Amazon etc. Many come from Japanese market.
Obviously not as many as in the past but you can still buy a new SACD albeit not cheaply.
Ok that's good to know.....

Its a shame that so many of the 'new' releases are re-masters of such old stuff though. A lot of them were recorded in the 1960s in mono, seems such a waste of the fidelity.......I'd love to try and hunt out some more that were specifically recorded and mastered for SACD though. I don't even mind listening to a bit of J-pop if that's all there is, its the sound quality that interests me the most!
