I think people are more intested in ripping and burning than listening.
Ripping -- Yes.
Burning -- No. Who burns? The ripped data goes to a hard drive, not a writable CD/DVD.
Listening -- Maybe. Let the DSD vs PCM debate reignite! As DSD capable DACs hit the market, there will be a renewed war of words re: these two formats.
If DSD didn't include it's copying roadblocks, I think it would have stood a much better chance with consumers.

Unlikely, since the industry is quickly moving towards universal type non-physical digital media, I don't think people will really care or even acknowledge what "format" it's in ... as long as was recorded properly and it justifies it's cost.
Joe, I think the old DSD/PCM debate may be less heated if it comes up again. People are discovering that things are not so B&W.
There was a time when I could not listen to red book for long. SACD was my only choice (not able to rebuild my lost LP collection).
While, to this day, I listen to classical/orchestral music via SACD if I have a choice, the advent of upsampled PC-based red book has narrowed the difference significantly. For example, much of the Jazz sounds great via my PC system. If I am in a lazy mood, I can use the PC instead of going to the SACD player. Then again, when I have the time and the SACD version, I am less lazy, on avarage. LOL!
I use Korg Audiogate Software, burn DSD discs from any Hi-Rez sampling rate, and play them on my VSE Sony 5400. Guilty as charged!
