And an DVD-A authoring program called Disc Welder is $99.99 now And programs to mix 5.1 have been here for few years now, like Nuendo and Vegas. This is entry level gear of course(bedroom wh****ers) :roll: but it gets the job done. So, as far as I can see, DVD-A has an advantage over SACD, at this point. I would love to hear the Audiophiles, response, here on RO, to this.
