    From www.avrev.com:

    Here's the link to the article: http://www.avrev.com/news/1204/16.dualdisc.html.

    By the way, I wonder if this site was lumped into their credible "Various Websites" source. Great referencing there. :rolleyes:

    I'm supposed to risk my Lexicon player to listen to surround sound (not even DVD-A)?! No way. :shake:

    I can't imagine anyone owning one of these high-end players trying out a DualDisc.

    This is what I wrote at the end of the thread oblio mentions:

    I've bitched about audiorevolutions "news" stories before. This guy hates sacd and clearly hates dual disc. All he's doing is rehashing the warnings and making it sound like the who's who of high end manufacturers are all having problems playing dual disc. While some may have problems (I know goldenboy has), I really haven't seen anything on the internet about actual problems with all these manufacturers. They state they need to test things out before consumers attempt to play discs.

    Look at his sources! He's making proIcomations based on nothing real.

    Now Meridian has become the only hardware company I know of to endorse Dual Disc. http://www.highfidelityreview.com/news/news.asp?newsnumber=18302049

    Although, if we connect the dots, we couldn't be blamed for thinking that it is because this format seems to be the only future support most record companies want to adopt that includes its MLP technology.

    Very true!

    At least they're honest about the technical difficulties. Notice they aren't related to disc thickness - since dual disc is within the 1.5 mm that the dvd and cd spec call for. The problem is optical.
