Has it not occured to people, that it would be good to have a HD based 'cd player' for use in the house ? a full sized unit, with large HD, so that people can transfer their CDs onto the HD, in wav format I know Sony USED to make one model ( Har-l500 ) which had a 40gb HD, and supported wav and atrac and also Yamaha sell the cdr-1300HD which has a 80gb drive and supports wav but no one else seems to make them why ? considering the spaces cds take up in the living room, you would think there would be as many of these set top units for sale, as there are i-pod type portables ????? even Sony have stopped making their unit, I wonder why ? I have seen that Accoustic Solutions make a HD player, full size, with 40gb hd that costs £ 200 in uk but surely the Japanese brands would make them too ? I for one, do not want to buy something like the A-Solutions, and would rather have a Sony, or Denon, Pioneer, Philips etc etc SOMEONE PLEASE wake up these idiots at these companies - its incredible weve had i-pods for years, with minitaure HDs , state of the art tech, yet hardly anyone has decided to make a full size unit, with conventional HDs, that would be CHEAP to make and EASY !!!! anyone else agree ?
