Im curious, but surely the idea of large hard disks, would be too allow people to store complete CDs in WAV format ? Isnt quality more important than quantity ? everyone seems obsessed with storing 1000s of files, as opposed to having 100s of true wav files, for the best possible sound quality - why ? Mp3 / atrac etc are no substitute for Wav files, if people demand cd quality for home players, why is it presumed we want lower quality for walkmans ? whats the point of having 1000s of mp3s etc ? I can hardly think of 50 good cds worth listening too, let alone 1000s.......... Its a sad day, when people prefer free downloaded mp3s, stored in their 1000s, as opposed to having , say 10 excellent cds stored.......at wav quality lets face it, MP3 only exists because people can download it for free........no one wants to pay for MP3 quality, as its just not good enough seems the manufactures are now selling us high priced HD walkmans, almost in a way to subsidise the free illegal music people download, and loss of sales therof very sad.................... anyone else agree ?
