TVPredictions/TWICE is reporting that Home Theater Specialists of America is endorsing Blu-ray over HD DVD in the high-def disc format war.

The HTSA member survey found that 92 percent of their high-def player sales have been Blu-ray players.

“The industry looks to HTSA as an expert for custom Home Theater, built upon a foundation of the top consumer electronic retailers across the country,” said HTSA executive director Richard Glikes.

Glikes cited greater device capacity, better resolution, larger manufacturer adoption and content availability as deciding factors for consumers in choosing one high-definition disc camp over the other.

    “…HTSA made the decision after an an internal study revealed that 92 percent disc player sales by HTSA members were in Blu-ray players, with the balance comprised mostly of dual-format players.”

    The 92% of their sales sounds like a lot, but with Dual Format players holding less than 5% of the total standalone sales, this statistic no longer holds the same weight as they, or the BDA, would have you believe.

    92% of nothing is still nothing.

    That’s because most of these retailers carry BRANDS that make BR players. Toshiba tends to not be found in higher-end retailers; usually BB/CC.
