I was in a large local Music Store today looking for a couple of DVD-Audio discs and there were a couple of people behind the counter and one guy in front talking to them. Well I asked where their DVD-Audio section was and they said they didn't have one. Then the guy talking to them jumped in and said he was a rep for a recording company and they were backing of DVD-Audio in favor of SACD. We got in a conversation and he said they were going with SACD because of the backward compatibility with existing CD players and people were not buying the DVD-Audio titles. I hope this is not the case because I love the sound from the DVD-A discs. I picked up a Panasonic 72 for the PQ and bought one DVD-A just to try it out, WOW I was sold. When I said why, when DVD-A is so much better than SACD he brought up the BETA v VHS story, where a superior technology is pushed out of the picture because of software availability. If anyone wants to hear what DVD-A can be then pick up the Fleetwood Mac Rumours disc. I remember listening to this when it first came out in the late 70's and it never sounded like this.
