I read and panicked when they came out with yet another disc format (the DualDisc), since I just bought a universal player that plays DVD-A and SACD, so I HAD to try it - although I knew it should play on any DVD player...okay okay...I was just looking for an excuse to try it

Of course I played it safe and bought another Diana Krall (Girl in the Other Room), I know how she's "supposed" to sound...

I like it...wait...I LOVE it! I don't know how the album sounds in the other hi-res formats, but she sounds pretty darn good on DualDisc!

Has anyone else tried DualDiscs?

Am I wrong or isn't this just kind of DVD-A's version of a hybrid SACD? But you have to flip the disc? DVD on one side, CD on the other?

I still don't understand why SACD isn't taking off. A hybrid disc (which most of the newer releases are) will play on ANY CD or DVD player. If you're lucky enough to own a uni-player or cd/sacd player then you also get the added bonus of a 5.1 mix.

Spiff,

I sure don't know the answer, but I think you're right. I just had to try it...

I read some players have a problem in that it is too thick..that's why i wanted to try it... thank goodness it works on my player

I just got one too.

One side is a DVD-V(DD5.1), the other CD. No hi-rez content on the one I got.

I recently purchased Nine Inch Nails "The Downward Spiral" on DualDisc. In this case, the DVD side does contain high resolution mixes. However, on my Denon 3910, the CD side skips on the last few tracks.

If DualDisc provides high resolution content...I like the format. However, if the DVD side is used to provide a few videos and interviews instead of high-rez mixes, I am not interested in it.

FWIW, I just got Rob Thomas' DualDisc, and my 2900 is having problems playing the CD side. I have an Avril Lavigne DualDisc that has no problems.

Apparently, DualDisc has problems with a fair amount of players.

I picked up Kind of Blue on Dual Disc, and the CD side had no trouble playing on my 2900.
But I didn't really like the 5.1 Dolby Digital processing on the flip side.
Just found and ordered a true SACD of the same from Tower. Looking forward to hearing how that one sounds.

I just exchanged the Rob Thomas' DualDisc for another one in hopes that it was defective.....and guess what....the new one plays fine! Maybe they are having teething problems in production.
