    Having stumbled upon DVD Audio by accident (my new progressive scan dvd player has a DVD-A decoder), i have a lot of questions... i really haven't followed the development of DVD-A at all, and even after many searches i can't find some basic info...

    why is it that all of the current dvd-a dvd players pass the audio only through the analog outputs? How can 5.1 be passed that way? what's the point in going halfway when one of the major benefits of DVD-a is the multichannel audio? also.. - is the 2-channel analog DVD-A going to sound better than PCM Digital?

    is there a FAQ list anywhere for DVD-A? How committed are studios to putting out a lot of quality titles on DVD-A? The only album I saw at Best Buy that I would think of buying is Rumours.

    thanks for any info
