AnandTech: Future Format Frenzy: Digital Audio and You

There is an interesting little article on Anandtech about the future digital audio standards: DVD-A and SACD (the two most populair right now). They compare the two briefly and highlight alternatives and so on.
Why do we need a new digital audio standard, you might ask? Well, CDs can only play stereo music and there is no room for actual digital surround sound, let alone dolby digital 5.1 sound! And with everyone buying these now that DVD players have become so cheap, it's only a matter of time. And wait 'til you hear one of those CDs...! :D
