How long ago did SACD die?

Some say it died at birth, that would be 1999 (last century), but new SACDs are issued every day.

ImportCD lists over 5,000 SACDs in their current catalog with 50+ issued in the last few weeks or available for pre-order.

Not all great, but I can't keep up with all of them and I'm just interested in classical.

How has the SACD managed to survive this long without 'mainstream' acceptance?

Yes, downloads will obsolete the spinning silver disk in all of its forms, including DVD and BluRay, eventually.

In the mean time Marantz just introduced a $7000 SACD player. OK, not for the 'mainstream' market, but still, not to bad for DOA technology.
