Default SACD quality itunes?

Looked at the Whos "Tommy" on itunes and noticed 2 versions. The regular one and one thats called the deluxe edition. In the review it says the deluxe edition was remastered and remixed by Townsend in 5.1 for SACD. Does anyone know if this is what you get from the itunes download (as Is implied from the itunes page) or only from the store bought CD(SACD) as I believe, and the itunes review is a decieving ruse.

Aside: any other old MAC users who feel shafted by an Apple who changed from a great computer maker to a media/cell phone pusher? (I subscribed to a MAC magazine last year and the crap was 80% ipod/itunes and iphone)

Regarding the aside: I've been using Macs since '95 and I couldn't care less if Apple makes mobile phones or sells media as long as they keep producing great computers.
Which they do and they are surprisingly cheap: When I got my current MacPro I tried to configure the same machine with identical processors and components on the Dell site.
The Mac cost 1700 (incl. software), the equivalent Dell 2400 (excl. software).
And before anybody says anything I have absolutely no interest in building my own.
All I want from a computer is that it works straight out of the box without any fiddling and Macs continue to do just that very admirably.

I have nothing to comment or offer regarding iTunes as I have never downloaded any songs, legal or illegal, whatsoever.

The Deluxe Edition of Tommy is a Hybrid SACD 5.1/Redbook release. iTunes probably just copy and pasted the text from the write-up that was sent to online sellers of CD's.
