The high resolution audio format war continues with no clear cut winner as of the summer of 2002. Sony is making strides in the world of tasty SACD stereo titles geared towards Baby Boomers and audiophiles. Warner Brothers (WEA) remains focused on 5.1 mixes for music which appeals more to home theater enthusiasts and the GenX-GenY audience. No matter which side of the fence you are on (that’s assuming you have picked sides – yet), if you ask consumers, almost all of them say the same thing. They want to see more worthwhile high resolution recordings hit the shelves before they get started with a new music collection.

Minnetonka Audio Software announced the release of discWelder STEEL, a basic DVD-Audio writing program that allows pro and consumer users to deliver high-resolution audio from his or her own PC, at the price of $495. With discWelder STEEL, the user can import all Linear PCM formats supported in the DVD-A specification, including non-encoded / uncompressed surround (consisting of up to 6 channels of 24-bit, 48KHz audio), and/or high-resolution stereo (two channels of 24-bit, 192KHz audio). Surround and stereo tracks may be used on the same disc, in WAV or AIFF file format, and a discWelder-burned disc will play on any DVD-A player that supports DVD-R.

Will a black felt tip pen defeat Sony Music’s latest CD copy protection system? CNN.com says it does. CNN obtained a copy of the new Celine Dion disc "A New Day has Come" distributed in Europe with much fanfare over how it can’t play in a PC and will crash a Mac. CNN reportedly couldn’t get the CD to play on a PC but then covered the edges of the CD with a black felt tip pen (just like the old days of the green CD Stoplight pens) and voila – the CD played flawlessly in the PC.

Say good bye to the lame ass elevator music that serenades you at a select number of your local Cineplex for a screening of the latest blockbuster film. A group including Warner Music Group, 5.1 Entertainment, Century Theaters and Dolby are teaming up to bring a 5.1 channel DVD-Audio demonstration to waiting movie goers who have bought tickets for Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones. The music will include tunes from Eric Clapton, Buena Vista Social Club, Barenaked Ladies and Dishwalla. The first theater to start such demos will be in Corte Madera, California and the demos will start May 16, 2002.

Both new audio formats, DVD-Audio and SCAD, are randy for consumer momentum and significant record company support after basically missing the all important Christmas season in 2001. A clear-cut format war between the Sony-Philips team vs. Matsushita, AOL Time-Warner and others isn’t helping clear things up either.
