    Similar to www.hdcd.com
    I just bought a Panasonic RP-82 and would like to find out what's available on DVD-A.

    Allan, welcome to the Forum! For a listing of DVD-Audio titles, go here:
    http://www.digitalaudioguide.com/
    This web site has information on both DVD-Audio software and hardware.

    Jesper, your signature is amusing. However, it isn't true. [​IMG]

    Jesper, SACD sounds so good you might think you are dreaming! [​IMG] By the way, I have a DVD-Audio player and 22 discs, but I prefer SACD. More software would help my appreciation of DVD-Audio, though.

    High Fidelity Review has the most comprehensive (and accurate) list of titles released to date.
    It can be found attheir website

    Raul,

    The link in my post takes you directly to the page that lists all DVD-A titles to date.

    To get their conventionally, click on DVD-A in the title bar at the top of the page, and you'll see the link you click to get to the page I listed above.

    Regards,

    Cool, High Fidelity Review has reviews too.


    Elusive disc seems to be a good place to buy?

    And (cheap plug), when I look for comprehensive DVD-V reviews, I shoot to WSR. (I particularly like how they always compare newer editions to older editions. Audio soundtrack and video. Has saved me some money in terms of not having to always buy the latest and greatest to be sure that I have the best quality.)

    Anyone know if for example, any site/person/mag that reviews a DVD-A/SACD, that they compare it to the best CD version available too?

    John, good work. I only visit highfidelityreview.com occasionally and have seen the reviews and the lists of labels supporting the two high-resolution formats. However, I had not seen lists of available titles. Thanks.

    Keith thanks for the welcome.

    I'm starting to think I should have bought a player that does SACD instead of DVD-A since there seem to be so many more SACD titles available.

    Keith,
    No problemo.
    There are some good lists out there of DVD-A titles, I wish there was the problem of having so many titles it would be impractical to list them.
    There are 3 really good lists out there, the digitalaudioguide.com site isn't one of them [​IMG]
    For reference, there are:
    Two lists from the Quad Forum, includes dates when available:
    Upcoming DVD-A list, includes dates when known
    Current DVD-A list
    One from HFR, which I listed above, and am repeating here for a single post with my resources [​IMG]
    HFR's Released DVD-A list, supported by Meridian
    Regards,

    dvdaudiopreview.com lists some DVD-As, but it has not been updated for a while. At least it may be a start for you.

    Allan,
    It's never too late to pick up an SACD player. For around $350, you can get the Sony SCD-C222ES by mail from an authorized dealer. For around $600, you can get the Sony 'C555ES, which is a better player.
    John,
    Thanks again, for the information. I have heard about those web sites on this site and Audio Asylum, but I haven't visited them yet.
    I too wish there were too many titles on DVD-Audio to keep track of. That would be a nice problem to have. [​IMG]
