I've recently purchased some new music on BD. These tunes can be played in stereo, as well as DTS, and Dolby 5.1. They sound real good. Will BD audio replace SACD as the defacto high-end music standard? I think it could.

I've long felt that it's Sony's plan to replace SACD with BD. I don't have any BD music discs but I'm very interested in how they compare sonically with SACD on both 2CH and MCH._mykl

The tunes I have are: Diana Krall, Live In Rio, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, MOJO. The MOJO disc is DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround sound, and 48K 24 bit PCM stereo. The Live In Rio tunes are specified as LPCM stereo, DTS-HD Master Audio, and Dolby Digital 5.1.

I believe it could catch on but I don't think the masses need a new "perfect audio" solution like the Compact Disc...What I do beleieve is how great the Uncompressed PCM BD movies sound via analog interconects in stereo.So basically the New audio discs are just "DVD audio" all over again with another name.I would buy some but i doubt most people will.

People are getting tired of format wars.  I have already invested in SACD, I am not sure I want to start buying high resolution audio on BD.  I think I would rather buy unprotected versions from sources like HDTracks than start over again on a new media.  I will continue buying SACD if what is available interests me.

Pink Floyd has announced a major release program.  Blu-ray, SACD & other formats are mentioned.  A 5.1 version of "Wish You Were Here" will also be released.  "Wish You Were Here" is definitely on my list if it is in SACD.

Hello David,

You hit the nail right on the head. I feel that we are all tired of the format wars and the money it costs us.
Good for you for sticking with SACD. I hope the format is available for a long time,

Joe

From having had a conversation with Mastering Engineer Steve Hoffman I became fully aware that the quality of the playback is not determined by the Format, but rather in the skill of the mastering engineer to commit the original recording to the Format.

The Hoffman mastered CDs I have do sound exceptional, but it would be nice to know what he could do with the same source material onto SACD.

I am pretty sure that any new audio format that uses physical media will be only a niche format - it will not enjoy mass market success.

Along those lines, I doubt that blu-ray will match DVD's success. People are just going to switch to streaming media for everything.
