Very true.You might could also make an argument that Classical has kept the whole SACD format alive. Allowing us Rock, Pop, Jazz etc. lovers to slowly get our preferred titles. I for one still prefer DVD-A but it doesn’t have a RBCD layer. Aren’t there only a couple of plants making the SACD discs?
Classical and Jazz listeners are very focused on sound quality and they are big SACD and DSD Downloads fans.
Also true that there are a limited number of Hybrid SACD replication lines available. (Single Layer SACDs can be made on most DVD Video capable presses).
Definitely a factor when it comes to SACD availability and interest from the record labels.
