SACD/DVD-Audio

SACD and DVD-Audio still to this day represent the best in audiophile digital audio formats. Audiophile record labels have adopted SACD over DVD-Audio for the most part and to this day, you can get many audiophile specialty albums on hybrid SACD, stereo SACD and even mono SACD. Others collect DVD-Audio and/or DTS CDs for their 5.1 audio mixes and video supplementals. Some audiophiles even search out a handful of Dual Disc titles for their 24 bit audio.
