Anybody else here waiting for music BD to really start showing up ? There's one or two here and there but a lot of music I listen to doesn't have the budget for HD filming and true high quality sound. (I listen mostly to Death Metal and Tech Metal) Also, I can't find any music BD's really floating around, anybody have a list or site where I could browse some that are currently available ?

Right now, concert dvd's are your best bet. I just bought Rush's Snakes and Arrows BluRay and it sounds fantastic!
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.

I'd like to see more Blu-Ray music-only discs, but I'd be happy enough with more Blu-Ray concerts. Like SACD, Blu-Ray music-only discs will be a very niche market - so I'm not expecting much of a push. Pioneer announced yesterday in the press for CES that it will be demonstrating Blu-Ray as a new hi-rez format for audio. Again, I don't think a lot will come of it. I think they next step for audio and video will be moving away from these silver discs and moving towards flash-based/solid-state media. Hi-Rez audio will probably still remain niche regardless of the format.

Reference Recordings sells DVD-Rs of ultra-high resolution recordings (playable from a computer)... it's their HRx line. Reference Recordings in the News
