I hope I represent a market niche. I hate CD's but like the new digital formats such as SACD (DSD) or PCM in 24 bit at 192K in stereo played on a DVD-A player. I love the multichannel mixes on the 2 releases "Holloween" & "Quadiophiliac", but couldn't you easily transfer the master stereo tracks you already have on analogue for the CD releases newly available directly to DSD or PCM 192K/24 bit. I am so sorry to say I just can't listen to CD's, and I have gone looking for all the pre digital pressings of Frank's stuff on vinyl. Can't you make more of the new stuff that I would love to buy available in other better sounding formats? P.S. Neil Young has recently given up on the PCM stereo releases for DVD-Audio due to lack of interest by the computer loving/digital hard drive folks with iPods. So he is releasing PCM 96K/24 bit stereo which any DVD-video player can play (sans lossy compression files of the music). That would still be very superior to PCM 44.1 at 16 bit depth(i.e. compact disc). Of course all of these better formats could also be downloaded as the software to write it to a disc becomes available. Thank you. Bret Miller.
