[quote] I beg to differ: hirez always improves the sound of instruments. And any consumer can hear the difference on a modest system on most recordings. [quote]
As I said, it's a marginal improvement.
In some cases, I couldn't hear the difference - ie. the extremely crappy sounding "Just Push Play" from Aerosmith.

And from my experience, most people I demo'd for couldn't tell the difference between the CD and SACD - and that's with some damn impressive SACDs.
These are the same people who couldn't tell the difference between a CD and a 128kbps MP3.

I also am of the younger crowd (24 here) and have a nice 5.1 system and dvd-a and SACD and would love more recent stuff like coldplay or john mayer or any modern rock. I think some of that while maybe not taking huge advantage of Hi res might at the very least be great in 5.1 sound. I agree that a lot of people my age won't care about higher quality sound but I do think they would spend money on some cool music in 5.1. While linkin park's DVD-A may not be the best sonically it is really cool to listen to and a great party disc for when friends are over.

Let me say this right now. If Linkin Park's album, Meteora comes out on DVD-A, I will probably wind up buying it. As I have said many times, I want more metal on DVD-A/SACD!! I am part of the younger crowd, and would love to take advantage of the technology, but there is not enough content that really interests me as an individual.
