When I mentioned to another colleague about hi-res audio formats, he said that MP3 is just as good, because it's digital.

To which you should reply:

There are a number of reasons, not least of which is that the medium is under marketed. The only people I know (excepting members here) who are aware of SACD are those I have personally informed of it. Then there are those folks who (the majority) just don't think music is worth further investment. They paid big buck for their PCM based Stereo and don't want to contemplate further expenditures.

Among those who might be persuaded to invest further in a music system, are many who are influenced by nay-sayers who speak with enormous authority, and who were there from the first disseminating misinformation - such as that fool Petrus in a new thread today - to which GROOT GULIUD has responded with intelligence and real information.

Wait however, see what Petrus will come up with to continue his foolish uninformed rant. We have at least 2 others that post similar nonsense on a fairly regular basis. I would like to wet Mr Wetmore for instance, with a fire hose sometimes!

With "friends" like these who needs enemies?

I'm still buying both formats, and expect them to provide enormous pleasure in the coming years. If Blu-ray "takes over", doubtless I'll get into that format also. At least Blu-ray offers easy access to hi-res audio and video in one format.

I have just finished enjoying Rick Wakeman's Six Wives Live At Hampton Court on Blu Ray - filmed in HD and encoded in DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound - it's an absolute feast for the eyes and the ears... for a price much more reasonable than what I have paid for most of my SACDs...

If more discs of such quality this get produced then no one should deny himself such a treat. Simply wonderful.
