This is not meant to be one vs. the other in terms of sound quality which will boil down to too many opinions. What I am wondering about is the mechanics of the whole deal and what is available in either format. I'll tell you what I THINK I understand about the formats. I already figured out that Sony Music titles are available on SACD and Sony makes most(?)if not all of the SACD players. I think SACD titles are more geared towards the original CD configuration without bonus commentaries or video interviews and such. A more "pure" approach if you will. DVD Audio titles seem to brag about these bonus features on the back like DVD Videos do. I know that at my local Best Buy the DVD Audio titles are mixed in with the concert and performance DVD videos and the SACD titles are mixed in with the CDs. At my local Circuit City The SACD titles are in a special display in the Audio section right next to a Sony SACD player and the DVD Audio titles are... Well, I don't know where they are because when I went there the salesperson had never heard of DVD Audio and only could find the SACDs after much prodding! Right now I have a DVD Audio Player and only 8 DVD Audio titles. Most of these have both an Advanced Resolution Stereo and an Advanced Resolution 5.1 mix as well as a DVD video compatible Dolby Digital mix. I have never tried the DVD video compatible Dolby Digital mix. I have been listening almost exclusively to the surround mix (is this the norm?) and I have never done any comparisons of the Stereo DVD Audio vs. a stereo CD because I feel it would be pointless since I usually listen to the surround mix anyway. Does SACD have more than one way to listen as well? Do they have a Surround Sound mix or does this vary from disc to disc? I know that I couldn't figure out how to hook up my DVD Audio player until I plugged in all five cords to the 5.1 channel inputs. (I didn't get anything through my regular optical cable that I listen to DVD videos with). Did I hook it up right? Is this the only way to hook it up? Does SACD hook up the same way? If so, how do I hook up both at the same time? I don't have an SACD player yet but I would like to get one. Do I need a receiver that has two sets of 5.1 inputs? These seem to be very expensive and I just bought This player and I don't think I can afford an SACD player AND a new receiver yet. My current receiver is only a year old by the way! Also, Is this even posted in the right section? Boy, am I confused today! I think I had more qusestions but I'll wait to see if anyone cares enough to answer these first. Plus, I can't remember what the other questions were right now.
