Not to worry.

The reason why DVD-Audio was created, was to deliver music with better 5.1 sound than Dolby Digital or DTS... simply because these two existing DVD standards "compress" the Audio data files to leave lots of room for the enormous Video data files.

But both HD-DVD and Blu-ray have a lot more storage capacity... and can deliver Hi-Rez PCM UNCOMPRESSED audio... which can be identical to the original masters.

So all you have to do, is swap out your Acura player for a new HD or BD version, whenever they start releasing music-only discs... and your system will sound even better!!
