So how well are DVD-Audio and SACD discs doing in the marketplace? News follows at 10. Yes folks, another train wreck of a format war rolls out before our very eyes. Don’t buy that player just yet, will ya?
‘DVD-Audio sales remained stagnant in 2003, with a 0.08 percent increase in sales to approximately 400,000…SACD sales were tracked for the first time in 2003, showing 1.3 million discs sold during the year…But for the formats to become truly successful, major labels will need to release significantly more well-mixed surround sound albums from high-profile artists, with marketing and PR that is far superior to their current efforts.’
