In reply to:

I can have truly "vintage" gear



sorry, i had to chuckle when i read that.

to think right now, that our SACD players will be "vintage" when we are old men, its just funny. our grandkids will have ipods the size of nickels, and cell phones will be obsolete cause they can just implant receivers and transmitters in our heads. and we can all get together, in someones basement, and pull the crumbling, dusty blanket back from our 'old school' system. and there lies, my trusty 563A. it was a classic!!!

thanks for the laugh player!!

SACD and DVD-A are not taking off because it requires special hardware to play them, and to hear the differences, you need a decent audio setup.

How many people have the capability to play a SACD or DVD-A versus a CD or DVD?

The biggest selling point of DVD-A and SACD isn't the hi-rez audio...it's the 5.1 mixes.

More and more people have 5 speakers and subwoofer sitting in their living rooms. Seems a waste to only use them for movies. SACD and DVD-A fill that need.

Plus, many people would buy an album they already had again just to hear it in 5.1 proper (vs. a 5-channel stereo or DPLIIx mode).

Well, I would, at least.

No question. The difference between a properly mixed 5.1 disc and a 2-channel disc run through DPLII or even DTS:Neo6 is night and day.

A lot of the the DTS mixes are studio. But I think you are right, most are concert mixes.

Still though, it doesn't require an investment is new equipment.
