1. Are you happy/unhappy with the audio quality of standard audio CDs?
I'm happy with the quality of well mastered, well engineered CD's, but there's still a lot of poorly engineered CD's released, increasing sampling rates, adding bits isn't going to magically improve that.
2. Have you heard about Super Audio CD or DVD-Audio? Do you have a preference?
Yes I've heard, I have a slight leaning towards SACD, but given the hi-fi industries obbsession with home cinema, I'm expecting DVD-A to be more popular than SACD.
3. Do you think high-resolution multi-channel digital audio is important enough to warrant buying new discs and a new player?
What would i do with my existing large CD collection ?, would a new multi-channel player be able to play standard CD's as well as my existing CD player, or would i need 2 players ?
4. Do you think high-resolution stereo digital audio is important enough to warrant buying new discs and a new player?
Nope, although the Genki supports HDCD, which seems to have flopped, I haven't heard much about it recently.
