+ - How much do SACD remasters cost?

Submitted by

jayegirl writes "I've been gradually acquiring more content on SACD over the last few weeks, after hearing the mind-burning excellence that is Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" on the format. It has prompted me to wonder, among other things, why there isn't more Pink Floyd available on SACD, and whether it might be plausible to set up some sort of online petition with escrowed donations toward production cost of further material.

So the initial question is, does anyone have any idea how much the remastering process onto SACD format costs a big record label to do? What about pressing the discs? What's the minimum production volume?

It simply strikes me that I'd contribute US$10 toward "Wish You Were Here" on the format, and I can easily imagine there are 50,000 like minded geeks who would do the same."
