Re: This is what we're up against..
I think one of the most telling misconceptions came from the very last comment from poster Arie net who stated that SACD/DVD~A offered NO significant improvement over RBCD....an argument that an [unnamed] poster kept promulgating over at the old SA~CD.net.

IMO, Blu ray audio [BD~A] could have been a panacea of untold riches but poor marketing, lackluster titles [again] and incompatibility with existing RBCD players has also doomed it to niche market status.
As the sun is rapidly setting on the 5" physical disc, I suppose we just have to accept the grim fact that the 'crumbs' (as wonderful as they are] continue to trickle from the majors and some minor record labels in the form of surround titles [mostly from the past] and that's as good as it gets.
