Default BD Profile 3.0 (audio-only)

As an SACD owner, I wondered why the PS3 discontinued SACD support. Really, since the 80GB became discontinued, no 'currentlly' manufactured PS3 offers SACD ability. It will be interesting to see if the new sku's offer this high quality audio ability.

I am 'speculating' that Sony will be 'replacing' SACD with BD-Audio (supposed to be profile 3.0.) I have mixed feelings about this. First, I really like SACD's. But, BD-Audio could be even better and since SACD is pretty much dead (with few exceptions) this could bring new life into HiDef music. If supported, this could be really cool.

I think with the format war winding down we could be seeing the BDA begin to implement profile 3.0 discs which would be awesome. Also, the BD camcorders have piqued my interest also. I'm glad that it was planned to be a versatile format in the first place.

I think that the BDA made a horrible mistake in releasing BD's before the spec was finalized. Now there is always gonna be a newer BD in the works which won't work on current BDPs...

Ummm, 3.0 is a music only profile. IE a replacement for your car CD stereo with HD audio. This is not a movie profile.
