Er, OK Don but the fact is the major owners of content have pretty much abandoned the format. Yes,
some small labels catering to audiophiles do continue to make releases, mostly classical music but
some jazz. Fact is, SACD failed as anything approaching a mainstream format.
You raise a good question about quad uptake vs. SACD and you might be right but note that
SACD-enabled players are not all DVD players by a long stretch, so they are a tiny subset of the
installed DVD base. Also note that DVD-audio pretty much failed as a mainstream format, too,
although some niche players are definitely active in that format too.
Bottom line is, more than 2 speakers for music-only listening is just not appealing to most people
despite how much you and I might like listening in surround sound.
