I wish there were SACDs or DVD-As of Christian music...

    I'm probably in the minority here, but I wish I could justify buying a SACD player or use the DVD-A capabilities of my RP82. I realize that the actual musical talent is not so great in Christian music (other than the vocalists), but there are some bands that would be truly amazing in some kind of high def audio format. I enjoy Dave Mathews Band because of their sheer talent. One band I would really like to see is Switchfoot. If anyone has seen A Walk to Remember, they are featured many times throughout the movie. That song that Mandy Moore sings was done by them. Check out "Love is a Movement" for a display of their talent. Does anyone else here listen to this stuff, or am I the only one?

    Have you checked out any of the albums by Aaron Neville? He has two out on DVD-A, Devotion and his latest Believe. Other then that though, there really is not too much in the way of religious oriented music in Hi-res. My guess is if either format ever takes off, you will see some more then, but with the overall sales being as miniscule as they are with mainstream acts, Christian recordings would probably be a major money loser.

    Maybe a Lifehouse of Jars of Clay hi-res CD would fare okay. Can't say that I am a fan of Aaron Neville and I agree that Christian discs wouldn't be nearly as profitable as their secular counterparts. Oh well.
