    I personally dont give a F about D2, but if I have 300 INR left in my pocket i would buy it for the additional tracks.

    I hope they launch an A R Rehman collectors edition sell like hot cakes!

    CD-audio is encoded in 16-bit and has a max sampling rate of 44kHz.

    DVD-audio is encoded in 24-bit and has a max saapling rate of 192kHz. The DVD's that we see outside normally have 96kHz sampling rate because with 192kHz, max of 2 channels can be added. The max. sampling rate for full surround (5.1) is 96kHz.

    This means that you can pack more amount of detail into DVD audio disc than that in audio CD.

    The difference between cassette (8-bit and 16kHz) and CD is almost similar to difference between CD and DVD.

    Due to the availability of more number of bits and higher sampling rate, DVD has higher fidelity and more number of channels can be added. Right now, the max. number of channels that can be created in DVD is 6.

    I would say that with DVD-Audio, we can hear music at concert quality

    Actually DVD-Audio has enough potential to make anything sound good, even the music of Dhoom2. And now that Dhoom2 music is available on DVD-A, others will soon follow suit and come with their own versions of DVD-A. This will directly result in drop of DVD-A players prices. Regular audio CDs will also get cheaper.
