    Dvd-a

    Spent a few hours looking for an Acura ELS DVDA demo disc since DVDA is about as dead as can be. Wanted to check out what it sounded like in the 2013 SRX. Once a I found someone hosting 5 rar files containing the 2007 Acura RDX ELS demo dvd I started downloading. Took a couple of days... Spent another couple of hours trying to get the ISO burned correctly to DVD. With final disc in hand I went out to my vehicle all excited... Put in the disc... Reading... Ejecting... Wtf. After some further research I discovered the 2013 no longer support DVD audio. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Yet, another coaster...

    I fail...

    It is too bad that format died. They really do sound good. I have around 30 discs myself.

    It's time for some Blueray audio only discs, but there doesn't seem to be much demand for Surround Sound music anymore. People just want the convenience of MP3 files.

    I would use the ryushare links and unless you have a premium account it will take some time to download

    http://www.hdmusic.me/va-acura-rdx-d...dvd-audio-iso/

    I would use this to burn the ISO

    DVD-A is phenomenal. I was bummed too to find out my collection is worthless now for playing in my SRX. No DVD or DTS playing either. I guess Cadillac thinks most SRX owners are 30 something and only listen to music on their iPods and flash drives and decided to save a few bucks by not including the software. The excellent Bose speakers deserve better.

    Is it the 2013 SRX that will not play DVD-A, but early ones will?

    The worst part of this story was my impatience got to me and went ahead and ordered Tommy by the who in DVDa from amazon while I was downloading the els demo disc. I do need to see at home to see
    if i have any players that support the format. At least amazon has an awesome return policy. If someone downloads the els demo please let me know how it sounds in the caddy.

    I'm doing the long tedious process of downloading the demo to try in my 2010 SRX. Excited to give it a try.

    I have DVD-A audio ELS demo discs from my many former Acuras I've owned. Acura introduced DVD-A audio in the '04 Acura TL (The TL also had a cassette player!!!), which I purchased in December of 2003. The system is made by Panasonic.

    Re: Dvd-a

    Currently at work, but really looking forward to the drive home....I just finished downloading/burning the demo DVD-A. I went out to my car long enough to verify the disc works. Very cool, onscreen menu with album art, etc. Played about 20 secs of one of the songs just to see....so neat, it's the first time i've really 'noticed' those speakers on the hatch doing anything. Can't wait to really crank it up and listen to more of the music. great find!

    Just burned the Acura DVD-Audio demo disc (after I wasted one not realizing I had to extract the RAR files). Sounds awesome in my 2012!!! I liked the surround demo of the speakers, and I agree, first time I've really heard the back speakers on the lift gate. Now I've got to buy or download moar!!!

    Just pop in any 5.1 DVD and you'll hear those rear hatch speakers clear as a bell.

    I was trying to find a CD to DVD-a converter, but had no luck. I know those audio channels don't exits in the CD format, but I was hoping to find a converter that simulates 5.1.
