    Hi,
    I'm shortly to recieve my DVD-Audio capable DVD player and was wondering where good places to get discs would be.
    Prefer shopping on the net as normally pretty busy. Any good online retailers for price & selection?

    Any help on this would be great.

    Cheers.

    Dan.

    most B&M stores don't know DVD-A from concert videos so its going to be frustrating to ask. and the last time I was in London, DVD-As were's even sold yet, so...

    Forget London if looking for DVD-A or SACD. I've looked all over Oxford Street etc in HMV & Virgin and couldn't find anything. For DVD-A they just said to look at the music DVD's and for SACD's to look at the standard red book CD section :mad:
    Tower Records were good (well better anyway), but that is now a Virgin store :rolleyes:

    I've used all the sites recommended by FeisalK. Just look around them all for the best price.

    More importantly than where to buy them, is whether-or-not you'll actually find something you like!!

    I think DVD-A had about 10 non-classical releases in it's short existence!

    ;)

    ... and after you got these few, some of them might not even play on your equipment?

    he's kidding, by the way. there are actually 15 non-classical releases. :p

    I've had some luck in HMV OXford St. Basically they do not differentiate between DVD-A and normal CD's, so you will find them mixed up!!! E.g Porcupine Tree (excellant DVD-A by the way and very recommended if you like Smith's / Cure / Gun & Roses genere....very hard to classify their sound) and the Eagles are in standard Rock / Pop section.

    Play.com and Amazon have a reasonable selection. Not used dvdpacific yet, but will see what they have. Seal is supposed to be a good disc which I will be buying. Have also purchased Tubular Bells, Santana, Vivaldi and a couple of others. Very impressed

    I only went and bought Goldfrapp Supernature on Super Audio CD lol.

    I've just upgraded to the NAD T562 high-end DVD player,but unfortunately it only supports HDCD as the extra format.

    My god, how many formats are there swimming against the current?

    HDCD, Super Audio CD, DVD-Audio etc.

    Wish they'd make up their minds and spend so cash on getting some albums recorded in multi-channel. aarggh.

    Thanks for the help though

    Dan.
