What is the future of CD ?
Well, If you have a CD
player or disk manufacturer's shares, the recommendation is SELL. You
can quote me on
that. The near future for people who refuse to rely on MP3 is probably
a good PC with quiet fan and good sound card, and a HDD drive loaded
with all CD collection in loss-less packing format . A touch screen LCD
human GUI. A lampized DAC chip and the rest is traditional. I do not
expect ANY NEW INVENTIONS WHATSOEVER in the HiFi arena. Speakers or
amps - None. Nada. Niente. Nic.
The more distant future will be wireless internet playback on demand,
like pay per song.
