Desire for high quality audio is as strong as ever, and a growing market for audio-only discs in DVD and Blu-ray format is furthering that demand.
Utilizing 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound technology, audio-only DVD and Blu-ray discs respectively are an audiophiles dream, with audio quality capable of up to 96kHz/24bit quality.
DVD audio discs have been around for several years now, with classics like Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and the Eagles’ “Hotel California” being released on the high quality DVD audio format.
But with the increase of Blu-ray technology usage and the availability of 7.1 surround sound on Blu-ray, Blu-ray audio only discs have emerged as a contender among audiophile choices for listening to music.
Artists have utilized the Blu-ray audio medium for many releases already, like Led Zeppelin’s “Celebration Day” live concert, Stevie Wonder’s “Song in the Key of Life” and Beethoven symphonies.
Universal Music Group is planning to release hundreds of titles in the Blu-ray audio format by the end of 2014, and many artists are including a Blu-ray or DVD audio only version of their albums in remaster packages and box sets.
