Being a supposed DOOM player (which I am not; yet born in '64) I disagree with you. I was fortunate enough to listen to both formats at their inception. And I think you've gone wrong in your insistence on focusing on SACD. Indeed, I was unimpressed with that technology when I heard it. BUT! DVD-A is clearly better sounding than CD's of any sort and noticably better than SACD. To leave out the superiority of DVD-A to make the point that well produced CD's are good enough is disingenuous.
