OK. Somebody please help me comprehend this. Many sources I've checked list the new Foo Fighters dualdisc "In Your Honor" as DVD-A (96 kHz/24 bit), though its not labeled as such. It's an RCA records release which is owned by the Evil Empire-Sony. Why? Is anybody thinking that maybe Sony is getting with the program?

probably they just didn't know about it. sony's too big to keep up with all of it's sub-labels these days.


but "getting with the program?" no. case in point: Blue Ray.

Si senor! The "big 5" are down to the "bIG fOUR": Sony, Universal, Warner, and EMI.


Today pigs flew jets for Delta, Saddam made a sincere apology and pleaded guity, Alchemy really works, Barbara Striestand switched to the We-publican Party, tobacco smoke was proved safe, and Sony released a Dual-y Disc with DVD-A content, NOT! :D What was it Frank Zap-ster used to say...? Oh yes, " ...Eddie are you kidding..."

Here's what BMG says about itself.

About BMG Music Service


BMG Music Service has been bringing people and music together for over 50 years. Launched in the mid-1950s, the Club was part of the RCA family of music until it was acquired by Bertelsmann in 1987. The company is the largest direct-to-customer distributor of music in the world and has millions of members across its various genre-based music clubs.
No mention of Senor SONY.


But at the SONY/BMG site it all becomes painfully clear:

Read all about it and see pictures of some of the higher paid putas, tambien.

Zappa also said, in the persona of clueless middle America, "It can't happen here..." And yet it did. Just ask Suzy Creamcheese. ;)

It's not an insult to a Ferengi, who are always talking about "mergers and acquisitions."

I get it. but it is early


Question Are we to the point were we will be buying used DVDA and SACD because both formats will be dropped like Beta? If not now then how soon?

I believe Sony is quietly doing away with the SACD format. Not only is this format non-intuitive from a technical standpoint (i.e. all audio and DSP engineers are trained to understand PCM audio -- i.e. sequences of integers, not streams of bursting bits), but it confuses the marketplace. DVD audio (multichannel PCM) is perfectly capable of delivering the ultimate audio quality as perceivable by at least 99.999% of all people. If we had just one hi-res / multichannel format, we might not see the DVD-Audio and SACD bins at Tower Records no wider than my outstretched arms (I hope everybody is noticing how the low-res formats (MP3, AAC, etc) are out-selling hi-res formats by 1000x or more). My conclusion is that the content companies need to rally together behind a common multi-channel format and market the hell out of it, and stop confusing people with all the different formats that are out there.
