DCC vs. SACD/DVD-A
Look, I hold Steve Hoffman in the highest regard possible. I have some DCC discs that are a VAST improvement over typical redbook offerings of the same material.
That said, I just got an e-mail from Elusive Disc (whom I also hold in high regard) asking me to spend $100-$150 for DCC/MSFL discs that are available on DVD-A/SACD for, say, $17.99.
Now, be serious with me for a second. Would you spend $149.99 for a DCC disc that's STILL nothing more than 16/44.1, when you KNOW the high-res version is 24/96 or even 24/192, AND is 90% cheaper?
Some people like DVD-A, some prefer SACD...some think it'a all worthless because it'a not analog. I can accept each of these viewpoints. But $150 for a 16/44.1 CD when there's a 24/192 version of the same disc available for 17 bucks?!?!?
Who would spring for a glorified REDBOOK version when high res can be had so much cheaper (and so much better, if I'm not wrong?)
Just trying to understand the logic...help and comments greatly appreciated.
