Does this even exist? Not on any of the thousands of dvds in my library. Sounds like a question for Stacey, because you have to wonder how the audio transport layer (and associated hardware) can support and sync bitstreams other than the usual suspects: pcm, dd, and dts. And even if it did, we don't have a way of sending it out on toslink, coax, or firewire, yet.

DVDs and SACDs are currently independant of each other. Who knows what the future will bring.

If he's talking about DVD video titles with SACD, there's no such thing, nor will there ever be. It wouldn't be possible to accommodate the data rate for both SACD and DVD video on a standard DVD. As for a future HD-DVD format, I VERY much doubt that SACD will EVER be on it. We'll likely get DD, DTS, or MLP DVD-Audio.

I would definitely "settle" for DVD-A and HDTV :)

...SACD stands for "Super Audio Compact Disc" (note that it says "Audio" - no video there!) - a proprietary thingy from SONY - and, as its name clearly indicates, has absolutely nothing to do with "DVD" - which, as everyone knows by now, means "Digital Versatile Disc"...


...on the other hand, DVD-A stands for "DVD-Audio" - an entirely different and, again, proprietary thingy developed by PANASONIC - and one that makes allowance for Video...


...more info can be found here ...
