Re: Will there ever be another meaningful SACD or DVD-Audio release?
Well I agree, but a few of us still enjoy the music which is why we spend thousands of dollars in gear and rooms. I think high def audio will be of interest for a few SA-CD.net has a catalog of over 5166 SACD so I would not call that completely dead but it is targeted towards fans of classical music.
The advantage of today is that now in addition to good music, you can watch a good movie at home on systems that are far superior than you local multiplex. In addition one doesn't have to be bother with noisy people, people kicking your seat, comercials, sticky and stinky food smell and sub par sound and image quality and if he movie is unbearable you just pop an other one in.
Long live high definition movie and uncompress sound!
