- Although SACD is a superior audiophile format, the growth of the user base and support for the SACD appears to have slowed in the USA market, and hence, mastering in this area is now less frequent. ZAREX HD is tooled up for Blu-Ray formats, and expects Blu-Ray audio and video formats to supplant SACD by 2012.
