    Mark, thanks for the news. Things are looking up for DVD-Audio, assuming that forthcoming releases -- Dark Side of the Moon, The Beach Boys Pet Sounds, and Queen The Game, for example -- pan out. Glad I upgraded my DVD-Audio player! [​IMG]

    According to my contact at DTS, Queen's The Game is on target for the latest delivery date of 4/29.

    You left off two other upcoming DVD-A titles, Fleetwood Mac's new disc (slated for a day and date release with the CD (I forget the title)) as is Steely Dan's Everything Must Go

    John, I wasn't trying to be complete in listing upcoming DVD-Audio titles. I certainly would welcome titles from Fleetwood Mac and Steely Dan. I also read in the current issue of ICE that Jackson Browne is working on Running on Empty for DVD-Audio. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Why would Guthrie have a problem with it? He wished for SACD and he got it. Now there is the opportunity for Pink Floyd and EMI to make even more money by releasing another format, and he's going to stomp out of the room in a huff?

    No kidding. This is an album that begs to be heard in surround sound, not to mention any added visual material. I highly doubt many in the general public care only about the stereo-only track on SACD; it's the 5.1 draw that's getting a few more people to buy SACD players.

    Because if the much higher # of DVD surround systems out there than similar SACD setups, this release - if it in fact happens - will create much more noise than this warm-up act.

    I have no problem with EMI trying to make more money. The whole music industry is hurting. They currently have a $25 list price on DVD-As, which, with the exception of titles like DSOTM, have little chance of selling many copies. The new hybrid SACD release is selling very well: http://www.highfidelityreview.com/ne...umber=11569324

    This certainly won't hurt future hybrid SACD efforts. Whatever the DVD-A sells will just be gravy to EMI.

    One thing I have a problem with is that Best buy advertised it in the sunday ad they had and it said that it had 5.1 sound but said nothing about only playable in SACD player or such. I think this might mislead people into thinking they could put it in their cd player or dvd player and hear it in 5.1 on any surround system while in fact most people won't be able to hear it in 5.1 at all or even in High res.

    Oh, boo-hoo.

    Why does it seem that in every thread on this forum, someone attempts to justify this or that complaint or concern on the basis of what the most ignorant and uninformed among us might mistakenly believe? Fuck 'em. Let 'em stuff LP records in their VCRS, let 'em cut their hair with lawnmowers, let 'em melt cheese in toasters, let 'em chew on pens until the ink runs down their throats, let 'em lick freezing cold lamp-posts, let 'em stick their penises in vacuum cleaner nozzles, let 'em run around swimming pools with pinking shears, let 'em eat their own bloody boogers, let 'em do every goddam stupid ass thing they're gonna do anyway despite the warning stickers, despite their own experience, and despite the good advice of their mamas.

    Yes, no doubt about it, as robert so persuasively states, this release is a huge disappointment, a catastrophe, a boondoggle, a folly, and a failure. Should never have even been conceived, the world would be a better place without it, and I'm throwing away my disc when I get home.

    To think, for once I thought I was with the popular crowd, running with the herd, participating in the prevailing zeitgeist, when all along I was hand-holding a loser. Fie, evil unpopular disc, fie!
