quote:Originally posted by neilepYep, I owned a couple of independent stores, one in North London, the other in central London we had demonstration rooms for Hi Fi & Home cinema. I did it for seven years but it was getting too much for me...despite the love of music and the equipment , I was bringing too much work home with me. (admin)..and doing an installation up until midnight was not conducive to a happy household !!...so..ten months ago , I sold up !Unfortunately, SACD and DVDA I think will always remain an elite format....who on Earth would want to replace their already substantial cd collection for yet another format ?..I know I wouldn't...yet..SACD does sound absolutely amazing....but....with up sampling technologies they can almost make an original CD sound as good...though...........well...it's not really...but close ! The difference is quite clear...yet subtle when you change from one layer to another in a machine where the capability exists to choose the CD or SACD layer...it is most definitely an ear opener !!!It's a shame...I really never had any doubt that those formats were going to remain elite.....even more so with people now investing in MP3 only based systems...it seems the humble CD may even eventually become an elitist format. Men are the same as women, just inside out !

There are plenty of Audio forums out there !..I don't frequent them anymore but I wonder if there are any Oz ones...have you looked ?...but if you find one....don't leave this place eh ?  Men are the same as women, just inside out !
