well, the -V layer of good-sounding DVD-As usually sound very good (for multichannel, the same 5.1 mix, in DD or DTS), and there is sometimes a hirez (24b/48kHz or 96kHz) stereo track in there as well. Check out the AIX releases
, Porcupine Tree
and the King Crimson releases.
you can also play DADs (Digital Audio Discs) from Classic Records - which are DVD-V with a hirez stereo-only track (see the catalog
). Even HDAD
s will play on your machine, you just wont be able to access the 24b/192kHz are in the -A layer.
talking about dying formats, you can even play Dualdiscs
(CD on one side, DVD-V on the other, usually with a hirez stereo track and sometimes multichannel DD/DTS)
Ironically, you can't play SACDs (well, hybrids, but no hirez, only the CD layer)
