    I thought it might be of interest to those assembled here that DSOTM will also be issued as a DVD-Audio discs by EMI sometime later this year. This is reliable information as it came directly from the company...that's about all I can say at this point.

    With UMG and BMG now firmly committed to the DVD-Audio camp, there should be little doubt that the format will not only survive but prosper. Some very important new acts will be preparing DVD-Audio releases for this year...not just catalog stuff but new albums.

    Uh-oh, if Dark Side is on both high-res formats, we could end up with a debate over which format is better.

    I wonder who will mix it and if it would be significantly different than the SACD.

    Don't have the time or the URL right now, but I thought one article stated that he mixed the 5.1 in analog.

    All technical bullsh!t aside, I will hold off all "one format is better than the other" until I have both copies in my system and can tell myself[​IMG]

    You've gotta love the sublte opinionistic bashing of one format by a supporter of the other. LOL

    Well, the term "upconvert / downconvert" carries connotations that can be either positive or negative.

    I think the term transcode is more accurate, since we are talking about two different encoding schemes.

    I would agree with Lee though. If the *original* mix is in DSD, then "downconverting" is the right word to use, because *any* conversion whatsoever can *only* result in the same fidelity or worse. 2nd law of thermodynamics at work. [​IMG]

    I have yet to see anyone prove that the multichannel sacd tracks have the same resolution as the stereo sacd tracks.

    Great news for DVD-A. The are many possibilities for bonus material for a release such as this.

    I also wonder if this disc was mixed already in PCM, since it was originally rumored to be a DVD-A from the get go. What if the SACD that was just put out was mixed in DSD from already existing PCM masters for the earlier rumored DVD-A release. Uh oh, don't want to open that can of worms.

    Even if this disc does come out on DVD-A from a DSD master (remeber DSD is supposed to be an archiving tool and not an audio format), wouldn't this be a giant slap in the face by EMI for Sony? Sony and EMI are competitors to begin with in the music market, so it looks like EMI took the charity Sony gave them, and is now going to stab them in the back by putting out a DVD-A with mastering paid for by Sony.

    With all this talk of the strategies of the various companies in getting Hi-res accepted by the masses, this has to be the best one to date. [​IMG]
