Who killed DVD-Audio and SACD? Well there isn't just one answer to that. Napster, internet piracy, greedy record excutives, electronic cartels all have contributed to the demise of it. Well when they were first available in the market many artists re-released their records in that format. Rolling Stones, Pink floyd, The Doors, Miles Davis were one of the first. I bought them and well I had to buy different systems for each format for which I was happy to spend money since the sound quality and experience were orgasmic to me (being a hardcore music lover & an audiophile). Overtime more artists came on board and then it just fizzled away. Why? Last year 'The Doors' released their entire catalogue in Dvd-Audio box set and I bought that too. Most of the time I find myself listening to these formats rather than a CD even though I have only 43 different albums in them though I have over 600 CDs in my collection. Nowadays there isn't a single new album released on them even older catalogue and some of them which are are mostly in limited edition. To me it just sucks, I am angry most of the time due to this and just can't seem to get over it. And worse still, computers can't recognise these formats so I can't even archive it and make copies of it for my regular listening. Some of discs purchased back in 2003 seems almost worn out and have developed scratches on them so it won't last very long. Right now they are signalling the demise of CDs too. What's the future then? Low quality digital files.
