Players designed with DualDisc in mind are expected soon, like Sony's PS3.

Keep in mind, if the DualDisc has DVD-Audio content on the DVD side, you'll need a DVD-Audio-capable player in order to listen to that portion of the disc. Even if you don't have a DVD-Audio player, most discs will have a multichannel Dolby® Digital mix in addition to DVD-Audio, so that they can still be played in a regular DVD player.
