This type of discsion does bother me. Why in the world do we have so many formats. Yes I know every company needs their peice of the pie. But look at the first the problem with DVD's you have people argueing over DVD- and DVD+. Now we have the same issue with DVD-A and SACD. If one is approvable by the DVD forum (as in DVD-A) why doesn't the forum just charge Sony a royalty for messing things up and releasing a nother format to confuse people. (Sorry I had to get that out) But seriously if software companies got their act together and release a Home or Family version of authing software for either DVD-A and SACD, then we might have a winner and then our audio will be availble. Classic lost music recordings I would love to see come back (lots of stuff on record still hasn't be release). I think we do need a format.
