This topic does not seem to have it's own individual thread. So I thought I would bring this up. Have you guys heard of something called DVD-Audio? I found out about a year ago what its like. It sounds pretty cool. Check out the link below for more info. http://www.surroundedby.com/what-is-dvd-audio/index.html Just like the CD, DVD-Audio focuses primarily on linear PCM digital audio. However, it provides a great range of audio sampling rates from a minimum of 44.1kHz (the best that a CD can do) to an outstanding 192kHz. The maximum number of channels is 6 (5.1 surround). In six channel mode, the sampling rate is limited to 96kHz/24-bit. The ultra-high samplng rates of 176.4kHz and 192kHz are limited to 2-channel stereo. Higher sampling rates result in extended frequency response which improves clarity and realism. DVD-Audio also has extraordinary dynamic range of up to 144dB (versus 96dB for audio CD).
