Re: Open Source DVD-Audio authoring program released

This is a great project - thanks for the work. I think that for this group, the 24 bit capability will be the main hook. There's quite a few of us doing 24 bit recording but always sharing the 16. While we can do 24 bit with DVD-V, it has to be resampled to 48. I record in 24 bit at 44.1 kHz because the ultimate destination is cd. With DVD-A I keep the 24 bit, 44.1 (that makes sense for anyone ripping a cd collection tool, rather than resamping to 48).

As far as players go, the Pioneer 578 is nothing fancy but for $100-140 it plays everything (CD, DVD, DVD-A, SACD). It's got coax/optical digital outs if you have a DAC. It's a bit flimsy but so is most everything it seems.
