CDplus.com is a fairly decent Canadian shop for music & movies. Prices are often more interesting than they are elsewhere.

Until recently SACDs were hard to find on their website. Now CDPlus.com has added an SACD category to their catalog.

go to http://www.cdplus.com
From the tab bars at the top, choose "CD"
Once you get inside the CD shop, in the darker-coloured menu on the left side of the screen, just below the search box, you get the option to browse Super Audio CDs (along with other buttons for Greatest Hits CDs, CD singles, and Under-10$ CDs)

Could this be a sign that maybe the SACD format is picking up a little more than it did until now and customers are asking for the product?

This is very good news indeed! I hope they offer reasonably quick delivery times on SACD titles. I'll give them a call tomorrow (Monday) and check out the situation.

Up until now most of my SACD purchasing has been from Elusive disc in the USA but, that meant taking a chance on extra costs from customs and postal charges.

If I can order a titles up here at reasonable prices that is what I will do in the future.

Looks like there titles are limited to "Domestic" distributors at this point. I'll ask about import plans.

Some of their titles are listed as being "In stock". I take it those ship out fast. It has happened that I've ordered stuff from cdplus.com on Monday, and gotten the discs by Friday even when the discs were listed as "Available within 1-3 days". On the other hand, I've also had some titles cancelled by the store because even though they're found in their online catalog, the store can't get the CDs from the suppliers within 45-60 days.

My SACD experience with CDplus.com is limited to Universal titles. Mostly, if you pre-order those, you can expect to get them in your mailbox either the week of the title's release date, or the Monday right after.
