Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

SACD and DVD-Audio - 1999
Blu-ray - 2006

Three better formats for music since CD's first came out in the early 80's and two fucked themselves from the start by being in a format war and one the industry is too scared to try. They are not going to try and create a new physical media for music, it will be CD, vinyl or Blu-ray.

Look at the decline of CD sales in the last 10 years. It declines on average around 15~20% each year and last year it was still king as far as albums go, so for sure it has another 10 years of life left.

I hoped the industry might start releasing some CD+BD discs by 2012 but so far the only releases like this have been artist driven. Execs can't see the forest for the trees.

Format doesn't matter.

Just wish there was one option where NO PEAK LIMITING was applied during mastering.

I know it's a outdated format but a Super Audio CD would be nice.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that the vinyl will hands down deliver the best mastering of the new album.

And when I say "go out on a limb" I'm being facetious.

Why can't they offer the DVD/photo book/bonus disc bundle, but swap out the CD for the vinyl?

Yeah I said the same thing today to BrahmaBull. I want that DVD, but fuck I have to pay for all the other shit in the Super Deluxe when I only want the vinyl?

Would be awesome if the vinyl WH edition had an 8-track vinyl with the live tracks, lol. That would make up for missing the DVD.
