Default Who won?

I have been out of it for a while. (Seriously) SACD or DVD AUdio? Who's winning? This fence post is starting to hurt.

very interesting.....It seems even many people on this forum have high regard for SACD. I am thinking to maximize available materials a universal player is the way to go......

With the new foramt wars, internet downloads of 24/96 and better may well gain ascendency. No Audio standards yet for BlueRay or HDDVD, but it seems Sony has given up on DSD (ie SACD)

Some times it kills me that the music media market is so big. Means that most consumers are fine with CD's and MP3's. No one wants to throw alot of money at R&D for new BETTER for formats.......because there aren't enough people who care.

This would probably be ok with me......To be honest I am not too interested in the multichannel aspect of a new format for music. It's interesting....but stereo is the way to listen. My PC has the ability to play DVD-Audio. I bought FZ qAUDIOphelia and it is awesome. But I think the surround stuff is tooo.....forced. Doesn't add much to the experience to me.

Backwards thinking that is. New formats drive new sales of things you already own, except when format wars do the opposite. Blame Sony for once again trying to lock up a consumer format. A pox on their house.

Backwards? SO you think jo blow that thinks the MTV top 40 is good cares about a higher bit resolution or sample rate. If people don't buy stuff corporations don't care about it........maybe i am to much of a pecimist...............I agree about Sony though.....they are probably still pissed about the minidisc.
