    I also saw this post on AudioAsylum, and as I stated there, I will state here:

    All these titles, with the exception of a few listed at the bottom of the post are NOT DVD-Audio titles and may never be - they are all DTS 5.1 CD's.

    The facts are not all they seem to be - so please nobody get excited about this list - since it is plainly apparent to me this is called "misinformation".

    Michael, I agree with you. I saw the post on Audio Asylum and responded there too. This information is completely inaccurate.

    Jesper, whether or not you realize that these are DTS titles really isn't the issue. The issue is, why should anyone really expect that this many quality titles will come out on DVD-Audio on one day? Had this haul been announced three months ago for release on March 26th, I would have been skeptical, but I would have considered the possibility of it happening. However, we are supposed to believe that in less than one week, the stores are going to be flooded with Steely Dan, Paul Simon, Sting, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, The Police, etc. on DVD-Audio? Come on. It isn't going to happen. The music industry announces releases well in advance, so we should have heard about this a long time ago.

    Anyway, I own a DVD-Audio player and 18 DVD-Audio discs, so I am not giving you the pro-SACD/anti-DVD-Audio rhetoric that we see all the time on Audio Asylum. I am just being realistic. Based on what I have seen from DVD-Audio thus far, I doubt we will that many new titles by the end of year, let alone next Tuesday.

    To add to what Keith stated, many of these titles are owned by major labels (Sony, Universal, Warners, Captiol) - that have plans to or have already issued titles in a hi-rez format. We all know Sony is only going to release SACD, and Universal has pledged major support for SACD. And one of your titles on the list - Allman Bros - is already scheduled by Universal to come out on SACD. As for Warners - I most sincerely doubt that they would allow DTS to release the DVD-Audio of a title they own the rights to.

    Many of these titles were licensed to DTS to produce surround mixes before DVD-Audio/SACD was a marketing reality. Now that it is, I suspect that these titles from DTS will only ever be DTS CD's and not DVD-Audio discs on the DTS imprint.

    Jesper, I am sorry to controvert your information - but you are trying to state fact - where I can reasonably believe there is none. AS for the Neil Young titles, Paul Simon, Mark Knopfler - listed at the bottom of your post - YES - those titles have been floating around that they will be Warner Bros DVD-Audio titles released sometime in 2002. That part of your post is correct information.

    Hey, if by chance you are correct, I wouldn't complain as there are many DTS CDs listed there that I would love to have on a hi-rez format like DVD-Audio or SACD.

    I already HAVE all of the above titles--Apparently this must be new to Denmark, but they have been out in the States for YEARS on Brad Miller's HDS label. They are now being reissued on DTS' own label in DVD-Audio-type packaging, but they are still only DTS & NOT DVD-A.

    BTW--They ARE great!

    I noticed the classical titles listed are almost all compilations, with very vague labels. I tend to stay away from that sort thing, as it usually means you're getting second-tier performances and incomplete pieces. It's usually true for CDs; I don't know about DVD-A. However, it's something to consider.

    SACD, meanwhile, releases top-rate performances of complete pieces of classical music, with sound quality varying from pretty good to un-freakin'-believable.

    This thread (even if it's just rumor) is enforcing my perception that DVD-A is targeting wider audiences while SACD is carving itself out a little niche market.

    Actually Mike SACD is not an entitiy that "releases" anything. Your post makes me thing SACD is some corporation that releases stuff.
    I believe that there are some good DVD-A classical releases that challenge the broad generalizations in your post. [​IMG]

    Phil, I just phrased it poorly. I meant "released in SACD," not "by SACD."

    As for the catalogue, I'm just going by what I see in stores and this forum. I haven't looked online much. And believe me, if I could spend the scratch, I'd get a DVD-A player. Right now, though, I'm looking to trade me SACD player in for a better one.

    The DVD-Audio well has been pretty dry recently after the great releases of The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac last year.

    We are still waiting for the Queen release and the upcoming Yes/ Close To The Edge release on the DVDA format.
