I have it on DVDA. It sounds good in stereo. I haven't tried the surround mix. If you can play the original at all, you might be able to make a CDR from it.

The war's officially over. Both SACD and DVD-A lost.
I prefer DVD-A to SACD, especially on rock and jazz recordings. In fact, given a choice of "Harvest" on HDCD or XRCD or SACD, I'd choose either HDCD or XCRD over SACD.
BTW, I have no idea if "Harvest" is available on HDCD or XRCD. I was simply using "Harvest" as a hypothetical.
While I like HDCD it doesn't come close to the quality of SACD. I like DVDA and SACD but give the edge to SACD for almost always sounding better than it's CD counterpart and ease of use. DVDA can and does sound great at times but is harder to play and some discs just sound horrible even compared to the CD version. There is no war by the way. They can both exist and do.
