Can anybody please tell me if this DVD-A is that much of an improvement over the regular CD.
Not that much of an improvement. I don't have a dvd audio player yet but the dvd a release does have a dd 5.1 layer that plays on regular dvd players
Luis, please dont take this personally, but what you said makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE.
I'm kind of tired of reading over and over again people stating that the DVD-Audio version of something is "not that much of an improvement", and then finding out that they don't even own a DVD-A player!! and in fact were listening to a crappy lossy-compressed version and haven't even heard the PPCM version!
Why not try listening to a product as it was intended before passing judgement on what is or isn't an "improvement".
Again, Luis this isn't targeted at you specifically but it hurts the industry when there are people out there that deride DVD-Audio, when in fact they have never even heard it. I'll say it again...putting DD tracks on DVD-Audio discs was a BIG MISTAKE. For every person that understands the difference, there are 10 that do not, and that is bad for the format.
BTW, the Corrs-In Blue is a VAST improvement over the CD. Both the 5.1 mix AND the High-Resolution stereo mix are fantastic.
