Archiving rarities to DVD audio

Hello All,
I get a bit nervous taking some of my more rare records to gigs,
-basic wear and tear adds up after a while, and often the tunes would be very expensive and difficult to replace.
It occurred to me that most soundcards these days sample at very high sample rates that would allow one to make use of DVD audio's
better dynamic range. Also DVD burners are cheaper now than ever.
One could simply play back through a regular DVD player. Of course this means no pitch control, so it would apply more to DJing Soul,
Funk, Rare groove etc where beat-mixing isnt as much of an issue as House. ( Of course I speak for myself there..)
I dont know how a DVD player would react to high SPL's I remember
cheap CD players skipping because of bass years ago.
Has anyone given this a try? I'd rather play my records than put them on CD of course, but for preservation purposes maybe this idea
has some merit.

Peace,
Nick

if you have the $$, there's the option of getting Pioneer's new DVD turntable, which supposedly handles DVD audio.....

wouldn´t it be possible to play the tracks via your notebook - I don´t know if there are any DJ-programms which support playback with higher bit and sampling rate than 44,1 Khz and 16 bit, but I´m sure there must be

Ableton Live does this, although it's not exactly DJing software... more like performance software. Still great, though!

From what I understand, the pioneer DVD will not be able to read dvd audio.
You should also check the deepspace forums as I remember FK talking about playback of high quality sample sound

hope this helps

Peace

It is able to read DVD audio, but they've not engineered it as such, which makes suspect they could've done a lot better job on the D/A so the sound quality may not be as fabulous as we'd hoped it to.
Also, the Pioneer DVD retails at something like $3000 and upwards so it's a pretty high asking price for something which is more suited for advanced VJs, rather than DJs.

dvd audio

well not quite dvd audio but you could use final scratch and a laptop so you still have the vinyl feel and the digital audio and preserve your wax.
just a thought

well depend on what kind of dvd-audio... i was thinking about an "home made" dvd with wav file on it. here is a quote from the forum admin :
----------------------------------------------------------------------
CORRECTION on my statement. It does NOT support DVD wave files so NO you cannot put 8 hours of uncompressed audio on DVD to play on this player Sorry I was mis-informed.
