Sony Disc Manufacturing will install a new hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) line at its U.S. manufacturing facility in Terra Haute, Ind., by April 2003, with production slated to begin the following month. The line will initially produce 15,000 hybrid SACD discs per day; replication services will also be available to third-party clients.

"As a developer of the SACD format, Sony is dedicated to expanding the awareness for, and broadening the acceptance of, this trailblazing technology," said Michael Mitchell, VP and general manager at Sony Disc Manufacturing. "Our new hybrid Super Audio CD line reflects Sony's and Sony Music's shared commitment to providing the most advanced recording and playback technologies so that every music fan can experience unsurpassed SACD sound quality on equipment that is fully compatible with their existing CD collection, stereo and home-entertainment systems."
