From a producer's / hardware standpoint, that is. Let's face it. I *had* to buy a SACD in order to listen to DSOTM in multichannel surround. No ifs, ands or butts (oops!). Or else, I'd have to face a remastered CD layer. So I bought it. Last year, I bought Queen's "A Night at the Opera" in DVD-A. Basically, one of my top 3 albums ever. Did I buy a DVD-A? Heck, no! That's why they put the DTS / DD layer on it! Before you bash me to death, yeah, I know all about the increased fidelity of DVD-A. But I just wanted to listen to ANATO in multichannel; and let's face it, I doubt the original master tapes can really sound any better than what they already do in DTS. I did so without paying an extra cent. I can *assure* you, I'd have bought a DVD-A on spot if it hadn't had the DTS layer on it. Bad business move, although they make me a happy customer. I own a SACD player, *yet* I own more DVD-As. What do you think?
