Of course they're worth it, and they're not a dead end or a dead format in any way! There are over 5000 SACDs released around the world - is that a dead format? We don't need audio-only Blu-rays! If you're a concert music listener with a surround setup you're in Nirvana. (Unfortunately not many jazz or pop releases though, in spite of Chesky doing all their new releases as SACDs.) Certainly don't need absurd 7.1 or 6.1 systems - in fact some of the best multichannel SACDs (they're nearly all multichannel & hybrid now) are only 4.0 - such as Opus3 and Ray Kimber's IsoMikes. Most classical and jazz SACDs are 5.0 channels. The best use of the unneeded (for music) sub and center channels is the 2+2+2 format (look it up) but few people will bother with the setup of two additional speakers above the front L & R. See www.audaud.com & www.sa-cd.net for SACD reviews and purchase sources.

Of course they're worth it! Multi channel SACD or DVD-A are the best. (those with 2.0 vinyl fetish can't be reasoned with so let's save readers the trouble; I have good vinyl it doesn't compare with SACD or DVD-A)

The Genesis box sets are reason enough to invest IMHO and they are not even the best examples of the format.

Blu Ray DTS MA is even better but it remains to be seen if a catalog will result beyond Neil Young's Archive release. Some producers tend to think so.

Sorry to the vinyl fans like jbk. But SACD and DVDA beat it. Noticably. The "vinyl is better" argument is gone. But for the mp3 industry killing hi-rez audio. Shame

Wes,

Multi-channel anything won't happen in my current home. The living room layout isn't conducive to the multi-channel layout.

My current system: VPI Scout with Shelter 501 MkII, Blue Circle BC23, VTL 5.5 PreAmp, Krell KST100, Krell CDP, Oppo 983, Talon Peregrine X speakers and Chimera Labs interconnects with Sound String Speaker cables.
