Last week we asked about the relatively low-resolution MP3 format. Now let's get your opinion on ultra-hi-rez: the Super Audio CD.

Your comment regarding the masses not caring is really another major issue here! Unfortunate for us all!

Lower price player that will play CD & DVD in all formats. Most consumers remember VHS/Beta.

I think SACD already has mass acceptance. People just want so much (channel options, more software, consumer level players, etc...) so fast since SACD has proven a success. I work for another Japanese electronics corporation as an Industrial Designer. It's easy to crank out the machines/players but there's so many other factors involved. I say wait a year for the dust to settle.
