A thorough review from International Audio/Video Review that shows SACD to be very inferior to DVD-A and on it's way out. Read it Here: It's very long, but they start with the more basic information, and then go to the reasons why. Having just purchased a SACD player this weekend and a DVD-A player to be delivered today, I will soon be able to listen for my self. Because of the titles available on DVD-A I choose this for my main system. I only paid $199 for the Sony DVD/SACD player and it comes with 5 free DVD's, so it's definitely a good deal regardless of what happens to SACD. It was purchased to replace my failing Panasonic in my bedroom, and the TV is not progressive scan capable.
