    The new 3 Doors Down album, Away From The Sun, came out recently in 5.1 SACD. But I just saw that they also just released a DVD-Audio version this past tuesday (oct. 21). I plan on buying the Pioneer dv-563a that supports dvd-a and sacd so i can get either one. Is one version any better than the other sound quality wise? If there's no difference i'm guessing i'll pick up the DVD-a version because I think it has some video clips or something.

    I would recommend the DVD-A, the SACD is a crest cracker.

    I believe the SACD version has a CD layer as well, which is a bonus as you can listen to the disc in your car as well.

    The way the thread is taking shape their does not seem to be a sound difference between the two besides conversion theories. I have the SACD and I love it but the decision comes down to which is more important:

    DVD-A The extra content that is provided. Not sure if it has stereo option if you prefer that to MC. Can play DD version of MC wherever a DVD and a theater setup are present.

    SACD MC and stereo hi-rez versions plus CD layer to play in your car or elsewhere. Hi-rez only available with SACD player.

    Seems like a nice problem to have with a universal player.
