What are the specs for DAD audio?

It's just a DVD-V disc with 2 channel 96kHz/24-bit audio and no video. It was being marketed before the DVD-A spec was finished.

there's also HDAD which is 192kHz/24b


I think DAD/HDAD is being used as a formal format only by Classic Records

IS there a list of all available titles somewhere online?

An HDAD is a hybrid, dual-sided disc which features a DAD side (maximum 96kHz/24bit, 2-channel) which can be played on any DVD-V player, and a DVD-A side (maximum 192kHz/24bit, 2-channel) which can only be played on a DVD-A player.

That's a very small selection. Is that really all there is?

Probably. Not surprising. Never caught on.

Which is unfortunate. With its only requirement being a regular ol' DVD player, this was probably the most promising of the hirez formats. The dizzying allure of multichannel capability killed it.

I think, rather, that the allure of copy protection killed it.

HDAD is a marketing term for Classic Records' 24/192K stereo releases. There's only one DVD format that supports 24/192K and that's DVD-Audio.

I just bought one of those Classic Records discs on ebay. I hope it is as good as it seems it should be.

They are very careful with their transfers. I doubt you'll be disappointed.


Cheers,

Yes, you get to hear all the faults in the master tapes.

Note: ΧΟΔΕ releases are not DVD-Audio, a format that required the purchase of new equipment, were heavily laden with DRM and never saw widespread adoption. The Mellencamp album is a conventional DVD that will play in any player that supports 24/96 audio, which is almost all of them. The album is formatted as a video title. The video is just a still frame, but that's enough to persuade the player to play the audio. In summary, ΧΟΔΕ is not a new format but makes maximum use of existing formats which have become available since the CD was invented 25 years ago but have not been fully exploited for music until now.

So nothing special in the technology, just using the existing DVD-V format and supposedly maximizing the quality (lack of compression, etc).

Cheers,

I got the disc today - it sounds very well done, and has that raw analog tape sound; however, the performance is mediocre (Goossens Berlioz Symphony Fantastique).
Not recommended.
