Wouldn't it be great if you could just go out and buy the surround sound music titles you're interested in without having to worry about whether they're on DVD-Audio or Super Audio CD (SACD)?

Psst! Hey, you! That's right - you! You wanna hot deal on a DVD player? I've got an SUV full of factory-fresh hardware. There are a few scratches and dents, and maybe some broken glass inside, but I'll give you my full lifetime warranty. Any problems - just bring it back to me here, in the alley off Broadway.

Integrated A/V systems may not appeal to home theater elitists, but they have enormous appeal for people with less-than-capacious living quarters---apartments, condominiums, and town houses. That's a category that includes most people in most cities. It's also a market niche traditionally catered to by Bang & Olufsen.
