I thought SA would be the winning HiRes CD format like Blu-ray even though I have a universal player. The marketplace (in my opinion) drove DVD-A off into the sunset because of its non-hybrid technology unlike SACD. At least a hybrid SA could be played in a conventional CD player. One of the issues I found with SA is that the format released very few new recordings, there are and still is an abundance of re-issues. It now looks like SA is also heading for the sunset, sans classical releases. Like Wes' note, I noticed that Chesky records is launching a high-resolution download store called HDtracks: http://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?fi...gename=aboutus
with liner notes in PDF format, (i.e.) : http://www.hdtracks.com/images/tom_harrell.pdf
This may be the future of HiRes audio.
