The variation in the quality of studio recording, mix and mastering is far greater than CD, DVD-A or SACD, IMHO. Some will be worse and some will be better. The SACD remaster of Aerosmith Toys in the Attic was done by Doug Sax - it sounds awesome compared to earlier CD masters - sounds the same in two channel on both SACD and CD format to me (you can buy both the SACD and the redbook CD version separately - but on CD I needed to buy a three album box set as there is no CD layer on the SACD and previous CD releases of Toys in the Attic were not remastered by Doug Sax and are not quite as good)
These format wars are painful. Surround has 5.1 6.1 or 7.1, DTS or Dolby,wide screen, 4:3...
DTS sounds better to me but they don't always have room for it on a full length DVD.
And now we have HD DVD, just another way for us audiophools to part with our money I guess...you can own the same movie on VHS mono, VHS stereo, on VHS analog dolby surround, then on DVD stereo and then on DVD Dolby digital surround and then on DVD Dolby DTS 6 or 7.1 widescreen and 4:3...and now on HD!! Not to mention the one or two disc limited editions with directors cuts!!!
1 Movie released in 50 formats over 30 years, the movie studios with the archives are laughing all the way to the bank!
and now, ladies and gentlemen, Just released from the vaults for a limited time only, buy "Ariel" beautifully restored for the first time on a two disc limited edition DVD....get it fast while supplies last (whatever you do, don't wait for the HD version which we will release next year, as we want you to buy that one too!)
