    They may get it right eventually. I favour SACD but I'd like to see a better DVD-A+ since I would buy some of them.

    Thread header is a bit deceptive. Single sided Hybrid is dead. I figured that it was a dead end all along anyway due to player incompatibilities. The dual sided Hybrid is still in the pipeline and should be out come June. I am actually more in favor of the dual sided Hybrid as it provides the greatest compatibility of any format. By having a dedicated CD side you do away with the problems found with SACD Hybrids on some players. It also leaves more room for information, as the DVD side could potentially be dual layer, meaning added extra feature.

    The dual sided DVD-A would be the ultimate Audio format. Hi-res Stereo, Hi-res Surround, low-res DD or DTS, Redbook CD, videos, lyrics, interviews and any other goodies all on one disc. This could be a medium that gets people excited about buying music again.

    The hybrid dual layer solution doesn't work and there's thickness issues with the other method. That makes it dead for now. Maybe they'll come up with a way to resurrect it, but for now it's dead.

    I never wanted that dual-layer disc anyway--too many chances it wouldn't work in all types of players. The last thing I would want to see on a dvd-audio package is a disclaimer including the words "AS IS" like a recent high visibility hi-res release has. [​IMG]

    I've known for a while that the hybrid DVD-A disc ala SACD was not a viable option from industry sources on both the hardware and software side.

    Flippers could well be further along than anyone connected to the article realizes. Conspicuously absent are comments from labels that press DVD-A titles.

    Lee,

    You have made a huge leap in culling from the article this statement:

    Lee,

    You can't run more than 2 channels at 24/192K on DVD-Audio now, how would this capability suddenly appear without a higher storage and available bandwidth media?

    Keith,

    This statement is incorrect:

    You know, I could have sworn that Blair Witch 2 shipped in the US as a dual-sided disc with the film on one side and the soundtrack in Redbook on the other. If that was allowed, why wouldn't replacing the VOB data on the DVD side with DVDA data?

    Or was it that the disc was indeed too thick, and they got complaints about it?

    Lee,

    In your earlier post, you were not clear that you were referring to BluRay. Since both Keith and I raised the same question at different times, this isn't a case one of us misinterpreting. Thank you for the clarification.

    I sent a note out to Mark, but have no idea if/when he'll have an opportunity to reply. Heck, I don't even know where in the world he is [​IMG]

    I do know the holdup for flipper style was thickness or they would be out already. The last I heard from a different industry source, the latest samples were within tolerance for both the CD and DVD specifications.

    Regards,

    Iain,

    I haven't touched the disc you're referring to, I might have to pick it up just for that tidbit of info you passed along.

    Michael,

    If one has no interest in Blair Witch II, then it would have been easy to miss this [​IMG]
