Has anyone heard any type of music on both of these two formats? If so, which format would you invest buying music on? At the Stereophile/HT Show in New York I heard SACD and was completely amazed at the sonic detail captured on SACD. I heard DVD-Audio at a local retailer, and according to what I heard I wasn't impressed. It sounded a little better than ordinary cds, but not to the level where SACD stood. Now, I must admit; maybe it had something to do with the speakers that were connected to it; I don't know. According to a few publications that I subscribe to everyone seems to be in favor of SACD. For me right now would not be an appropriate time for me to invest into either format, due to the fact that either format does not have enough software. SACD has just a few labels, and of course Sony Music and all of its subsidiaries. Where as DVD-Audio has a few more big record labels supporting it, but still not enough music on it. If I had to chose between the two, I would pick SACD. How do you feel about the two formats?
