While SACD and DVD-A seem pretty much format roadkill, do you have any hopes that the new Blu-ray and HD-DVD formats will use their high-resolution audio capability?

All we really want to hear from our systems is the music, but sometimes there is still a little unwanted noise tagging along for the ride. Do you have any humms, buzzes, or other unwanted noises emanating from your audio system? What do you do about it?

The times they are a changing, and many audiophiles have added video to their audio system. Others have kept their two-channel systems intact by creating separate home-theater systems. How about you?
