Okay, as far as I can tell, the DVD-Video standard dictates that the audio track(s) must be encoded at a maximum of 24bit/48KHz. Can anyone confirm? I'm about to buy a rather oldie-but-goodie audio processor that only has a 48KHz DAC. Don't care about DVD-Audio, if it finally catches on I'll get a new processor/preamp, but I doubt it. There's mention of LPCM audio tracks at 96KHz, but I can't seem to find absolutely clear statistics on how rare a 96KHz DVD is (seems infinitesimal, though). Help, audio dorks!
Also, buy my couch/entertainment center/bedframe/dresser/Victrola, dammit!
