    Some new releases in general would be good.

    No, not all, it would then be just normal 'DVD-Video quality' which defeats the object of Advanced Res DVD-A.

    DVDA is more of a 'listening experience' than a 'Visual' one.

    The fact that you need a TV/screen to set the audio etc just adds to the confusion.

    Correct - biggest turn off of all for me with DVD-A is the fact that I have to turn on the TV when I want to listen to music. :thumbsdow

    SACD wins hands down for me because of this.

    That depends on how well you kow the menu for the disc you are playing. I know my way around about 10 of my favourite discs without ever having to use the on screen menu.

    Or if you have a Pronto remote or similar then you could set up a simple macro to select and play your fave soundtrack.

    Not really an issue for me as I refuse to buy DVD-A. Apart from two to test the system when I bought my player, Flaming Lips "Yoshimi" as it was recorded specifically for the format, and "Pet Sounds" as I was curious to hear what the hi-def mix would reveal (nothing more than the HDCD re-master as it turned out), I have not bought any more DVD-A.

    With SACD I can play it in my Universal player, both my CD players in my downstairs and upstairs system, my PC, Walkman, etc. Can't do that with DVD-A. Likewise if the format disappears (which is quite likely for both DVD-A and SACD) with SACD I've still got a usable CD layer.
