This a quick poll to try and gauge how many DVD-A discs you people own on average and if you have any then what are your top ten discs, or top three if you don't have ten.

My top ten discs are:

1: Flaming Lips: Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots
2: Donald Fagen: The Nightfly
3: Mike Oldfield: Tubular Bells 2003
4: Steely Dan: Everything Must Go
5: Steely Dan: Two Against Nature
6: The Band: The Last Waltz
7: Fleetwood Mac: Rumours
8: REM: Automaic For The People
9: Grover Washington Junior: Winelight
10: Missy Elliott: So Addictive

Any other recommendations?

Only just bought my player, but Sting's Ten Summoners Tales benefits greatly on DTS over the normal CD version.

Will check for DVDA or SACD versions before buying albums in the future.

I've got

the corrs in blue
foreigner 4
queen - the game
queen - the other one I cant remember
police best of
eagles hotel california
and another 4 or 5 I cant remeber - about a dozen in total

no claisscal yet tho - temted with Holst's The Planets


I've only got 2:

Queen - The Game
Queen - A Night At The Opera (The 1 you can't remember?)

Would love to get more, but never seem to remember to look for them when on the web sites. Never seen them in the shops, not that I go into record shops that often.

I have (in no particular order):

REM-Greatest Hits
Alicia Keys-Songs in A Minor
Foo Fighters-One by One
Staind-14 Shade of Grey
David Gray-A New Day at Midnight
Holst-The Planets
Les Brown-Session #55


I have one; Missy Elliott - So Addictive.

Unfortunately, a lack of interest in dodgy MOR reissues has prevented me from buying any additional titles.




I just have
Norah Jones' first album and the best of REM
but only cause i couldn't justify replacing ones I already had on CD which covers almost all the rest of the ones I like!

Donald Fagen - Kamakiriad is an outstanding DVD-A especially the videos for Snowbound and Tomorrow's Girls

Steely Dan- Two Against Nature is also a fantastic DVD-A

Both thoroughly recommended

I own one DVD-A disc but don’t have a player (I use it on my DVD-V player and the 16/48 LPCM track) but I wont be buying many more :

Porcupine Tree : In Absentia (fantastic album BTW)

The only DVD-A content on this disc is a measly 24 Bit – 48 Khz Surround track, how it passes as a DVD-Audio at such a low rate Im quite astonished TBH but that’s big industry for you.

Are you guys not kicking up a stink about this ? Never mind the lack of titles, the quality & resolution of new DVD-A discs is a scandal. They don’t deserve your custom IMHO until they improve the resoltuion of these discs. Anyway this thread may be of interest to those wanting the best quality recording from the DVD-A standard :

Like DAB appalling bitrates if people just accept lower quality “its all that they will be served up”

Not being negative, but imho, people don't exactly have shed loads of DVD-A.

I would like to add it to my DV27 but just can't justify it. Nowhere near enough software.

Is this format ever really going to be any bigger than it is now?
