    Warner released quite a few high profile artist DVD-A titles in December 2001 (Eagles - Hotel California, Hootie & The Blowfish - Cracked Rear View, etc) but I haven't seen hardly any title announcements so far for this year.

    Anyone know what is going on with new titles for this year or when they might start getting some new announcements?

    I just kind of make it over to BB once a week. First I check the DVD-A section, then go to back of the store and check the SACD section. If nothing grabs me I make my way through the Redbook section on the way out.

    My method has a major hole in it, as BB only carries the Sony SACD discs and not the other labels. I kind of wish I still worked in NYC so I could hit the Tower store at Lincoln Center once a week. Ah, the good ol' days.

    Speaking of new titles, how is the multi-channel Al Green's Greatest Hits mix? Has anyone here picked it up?

    Larry Geller,
    PPCM is only needed if there is not space for the regular PCM tracks. If the compression isn't needed for space purposes on the disc there's no reason to use it. It's not like more bits cost more to press. Also, from what I've read many DVD-Audio players do bass management on only uncompressed PCM tracks. (there's not enough power to handle both MLP and bass management on high res PCM at the same time)
    The thing is, if they're using uncompressed 48/24 for the stereo track why do DVD-A? [​IMG] Use DVD-Video for that track and everyone can enjoy it whether or not they have DVD-Audio! (same goes for 96/24 stereo tracks) My Psychedelic Furs live DVD has a 48/24 stereo track and it sounds fantastic.

    as for the al green thing..

    this is why i made another post concerning the unevening, non-standard of dvd-a...you simply don't know what you are getting unless they print it on the package (as they did with hotel california)... there should be a standard bit/khz as with cd...no variations so all recordings follow a standard. surround in 24/96 and stereo in 24/192 that's it! jeez what if i buy a dvd-a disc with 16/44!! i'd be pissed.

    Didn't Ah Via Musicom by Eric Johnson just street.

    I saw it at Best Buy the other day but I haven't listened to the CD enough to warrant me buying the DVD-A just yet. Nothing against EJ, just haven't had the time.

    I agree with Peter_A.

    Let's have some newer groups on DVD-A. Or even not-so-new groups. Imagine some of R.E.M.'s albums in multichannel.

    The nice part about having new groups in this format is that they'd actually be around to mix it (or they'd still have their hearing, unlike Pete Townshend or George Martin).

    From what I recall, the Beatles on Compact Disc was the breakthrough for that format. What band could do the same for DVD-A?

    What do you all think?
