Just noticed this today while browsing through the CD' department at b.buy.
A noticable amount of new CD's released under the Sony Music label are being created through the 'DSD' process instead of through regular PCM.
This suggests to me that Sony has given up on SACD (where DSD encoding originated) and crossing over SACD's technology to the CD format in order to squeeze as much quality out of it as possible.
The first CD I saw that said "DSD" I looked everywhere on it for an "SACD" label but there was none. What do you guys think about this?
