That is essentially what I’m saying, except that, to be clear, as I understand it, at this point in the future development cycle…etc. - they are only planning on losing the ability to play Factory SACDs. (PS Pals, feel free to weigh in at any point. Though Jah knows, I will not fault you for NOT wasting your weekend on this. On the other hand, Paul, you started it ; )
You’ve gotten closer to what I was pondering, which is that, in order to extract the max awesomeness of DMP2, you would want to be conversant in DVD-ROM ripping of .dsfs and so forth. Hence the disconnect - you wouldn’t think the new buyers would be into that unless the thing is $2k or something. Otherwise, they would buy the Octave.
Everyone feel free to weigh in - we’re doing free product development on Sunday : )
