    John,

    Thanks for the great news.

    Those of us that have playback for DVD Audio simply pick up titles we want when they come out... [​IMG]

    Steely Dan is coming to DVD Audio / day and date with the cd... June 10.

    Jesper,

    I was referring to the Capitol Records material of Steely Dan's catalog titles.

    John,

    I understand. I guess you haven't resorted to drastic measures to get the information we need. You know, dead fish, etc. [​IMG]

    Keith,

    I thought the old DAN catalog was on ABC Records....

    It's been way too long since I've had one of the old album covers in my hands to verify [​IMG]

    YES!!! This is news I have wanted to hear for a long time!!! Roadrunner is part of Universal, so that means more high-res metal. [​IMG] [​IMG] Finally! I have a format to adopt!

    I am still waiting for Universal (A&M) to re-master the back catalog for STYX. I would love to hear them on DVD-A in 5.1 surround if Universal decides to release any of there past albums. There music would do well as DVD-A or SACD as it is very layered.

    As I have a Pioneer 45a I can play both formats so I am sure Universal will get some of my money with whatever artists/titles they put out.

    Patrick,

    Not to mention the CDs I've heard of the material sounds like crap.

    Of course if it's the original multi-track (and stereo) masters that sound like crap, all DVD-A or SACD would do is let us hear the crappy sound in all it's glory [​IMG]

    Fun material though!

    John,

    The remastered Greatest Hits (part 1) cd sounds so much better than the material off of the original cd's. Bob Ludwig I feel did a great job bringing those songs back to life. Whatever "Audio Master Plus" is/was that A&M was using to master the songs on cd made the songs sound kind of lifeless to me. My old records sounded much better if I remember correctly. So, there is hope I think for a better sounding DVD-A or SACD product.
