Well...it seems that someone has to ask these questions from time to time.

My preference is DVD-A because they are re-running so many classic Rock recordings.

But, with Sony and Phillips behind SACD...

DVD-A can already be digitally copied, and SACD cannot. What does the RIAA perceive as their biggest enemy? The answer lies within.

This has been discused to death on the Hi-Rez forum on Audio Asylum. Run a search on the archives. There is enough reading material there to take you days to go through.

I think both will survive, but eventually DVD-A will gain more market share, IMO, because it has DVD in its name. It'll be interesting to see how it all shakes out.

I think both will survive for the foreseeable future, but in the end it is the one that sells the best and that should be the one that gets the most significant artist support.

For now, that seems to be SACD.

How much does one cost? And where do I get one at a reasonable price? Surely a model with all of that would be at least 1200 USD.
