Sting: Sacred Love        (1 of 1 found this review helpful)
  July 15, 2004

Not one of Sting's best albums. The audio is heavily over-produced and has a bit of a gritty, digital-like texture to it. The surround mixing is of much better quality on the DVD-Audio of Brand New Day and the DTS CD (yet to be released on SACD or DVD-Audio) of Ten Summoner's Tales and Nothing Like ... more

Lossless CODESC vs SACD's
October 14, 2007
Blu-ray already has some stellar live concerts using PCM high resolution (uncompressed or losslessly packed) 5.1 audio. I think that may be the future, at least for the executives making the decisions. Blu-ray can do 8 channel 24/96 audio or 6 channel 24/192 audio, so it can best SA-CD and DVD-Audio if someone so chooses to release their discs ... more
The future of SACD in 2007
April 20, 2007
The only possible way multi-channel high resolution, or high resolution audio in general has ANY chance of surviving is if Blu-ray or HD-DVD (I'm hoping for Blu-ray) stick around long enough. Universal Music Group and Sony Music labels have endorsed Blu-ray. There are many audio options available on Blu-ray, as an example: DTS-HD Master Audio ... more
Blu-Ray or HD-DVD (whichever wins): The last hope for high res. audio?
September 21, 2006
Would it be safe to say with DVD-Audio and SA-CD (the former even more than the latter) basically reaching a dead-end in the audio market that Blu-Ray or HD-DVD is high resolution audio's last hope? With Blu-Ray and HD-DVD both supporting 8 discrete channels of 24 bit/96 kHz or 6 discrete channels of 24 bit/192 kHz Linear PCM (in either ... more
Blue Ray Disc could damage SACD & DVD-A
January 5, 2005
If you look at Blu-Ray's current (unratified) audio specifications there is NO mention of DSD at any resolution... at all. The last I heard it was a locked 27 Megabits/sec (up to) for an audio stream and 8 channel discrete 24/192 Linear PCM as the maximum output. Uncompressed. At the moment lossless compression (if used in Blu-Ray) means DTS-HD, ... more
