From Channel Classics web site:

"All releases are Super Audio, recorded in Super Audio as hybrid CDís to be played on your normal CD player if you do not have a SACD player. We are not [releasing] a separate normal CD anymore. They take too much space in the warehouse and a good deal of our distributors are only taking SACD only releases."

What a sensible idea. Actually, when I was SACD shopping yesterday, I was given a Channel Classics Sampler CD and every excerpt on it (with two from Rachel Podger's Vivaldi "La Stravaganza" concerti, incidentally) was mentioned as being an SACD/CD hybrid.

My only disappointment was that, when I put the disc into my SACD player and set it up for SACD, it reverted to plain ol' CD! Never mind.

I've ordered two discs from that sampler.
