Looks like DVD-A has the theoretical advantage over SACD.  I've heard there's not much well recorded material available on DVD-A though.  Anyone?

I have some classical stuff (Handel, Mozart, Grofé ans Shostakovich) on DVD-A.  I also have Gaucho (Steely Dan) Tommy (The Who) and Love (The Beatles) on DVD-A.  The Pop/Rock stuff sounds terrific, and some of the classical stuff sounds great too.  Others less so.  I think it has to do with the master and the mastering.  But, because none of the stuff I have is done at 192kHZ (only 24/96), SACD is superior.  I also have a couple of  DTS CDs that sound pretty good (my favorite is The Police Every Breath You Take DTS CD.

I agree with Bill in that the main difference is in the ORIGINAL recording & subsequent mastering.  An SACD can sound like crap if it's made from a bad master/source.
