Ok, ok, I did a search on the forums here, and I didn't really find much that fit my question directly...so before I get crucified for asking *that same old question again that's already been answered a million times here before* :D if anyone can point me to a thread that answers this, I'll happily go read it.
Otherwise, I just wondered if you, my wizened brethren, could offer a quick primer on what the differences are of current high definition audio formats currently available today.
I'm aware of course of standard CDs, and I know that there are at least two other formats using higher sampling rates correct? Redbox or something like this? And SCAD or SRAD or maybe it was NORAD, or perhaps even I'MBAD. I can't remember off hand. :p Then, there are DVD's you can buy with just music - though I'm unaware if they are all recorded at a higher rate or not. Blu-ray is supposed to offer 'uncompressed' sound - or at least that's what the marketing guys would like us to believe. Is that *really* uncompressed?
And if you have a Blu-ray player, I assume you can not simply play all formats interchangeably correct? I imagine you are stuck buying some ridiculous expensive proprietary player (like what Blu-ray was a couple years ago), and that your selection of titles will be disgustingly limited (like what Blu-ray was a couple years ago), and that you'll regularly have to sell body parts to be able to afford the discs (like what Blu-ray was a couple years ago)... hehehe
Anyway, just curious as to what's out there these days, and where and how to hear it. You all is da best! Thanks for humoring me! :D:D:D
