I asked this question back in November, didn't get any replies. I 
haven't found any application for creating DVD-A discs on OS X. I've 
found 2 for windows: Minnetonka and Sonic (I think Sonic might have had 
some sort of DVD-A stuff on mac, but I can't find anything). The other 
issue is that even though Minnetonka has a $500 offering, most people 
recommend buying the big brother (Chrome I think) that's ~$5000. 
Sonic's pricing is around that point too.

I haven't looked in-depth at DVDSP, as I couldn't find anything 
informative on the webpage (I don't own it). Most DVD-Video apps simply 
do not do the MLP encoding that makes DVD-A worthwhile. Its 
frustrating, as you'd think *someone* would realize there's a huge 
market to capitalize on and write a DVD-A solution for the mac...
