Re: SACD and DVD-Audio, Doomed Formats?
What everybody tends to forget is that the players do not make a new audio or video format: the software content (albums released) makes the format. Who cares if the latest Sony Blu-Ray player supports SACD; that doesn't matter. What does matter is that SACD discs are being produced every month by a wide variety of classical and jazz labels. No other hi-res music format has near the same level of support. Neither Blu-Ray nor HD-DVD show any signs of getting any music software support. When it comes to hi-res music, SACD is the clear winner.
