Until now, a major gripe with DVD-Audio players among consumers and manufacturers alike has been the lack of a high-resolution digital output, in particular for audio. Copy protection issues have led to the majority of manufacturers (with a small number of exceptions) limiting their digital output capability to "CD-quality": 44.1 or 48 kHz sampling, while the DVD-Audio specification allows for superior quality sample rates, up to 192 kHz. As a result, consumers have had to rely on the digital converters built into the player, which are not always as good as they could be and are certainly not in the same league as external converters or those in a good receiver.

Concert Ticket sales were down in 2001 according to Pollstar Magazine but the prices were up $2 to $43 on average. That is before fees and surcharges which are also seemingly on the rise. September 11th was as much of a factor on concert ticket sales in 2001 because many of the big tours were already over before the attacks. How fears of terrorism will impact concert sales for the summer tours in 2002 is hard to predict. Some say they will be lower because of fear or peoples lack of interest momentarily in popular music (see 2001 record sales story). Others point to the record moview box office returns for Q4 2001 and say large scale concerts offer an even better escape.

Death-rocker, Rob Zombie has announced that he will team up with Korn and Ozzy for a pre-Grammys metal show at the Los Angeles Sports Area called "The Concert for Artists Rights" says Rollingstone.com. The issue is artists claiming that the music industry takes part in unfair and deceptive practices pertaining to long term recording contracts.

Classic rock legends, Aerosmith have just cancelled three shows due to lead singer, Steven Tyler’s, "unspecified illness." Tyler had been having throat problems in recent months but the "unspecified illness" has sparked rumors of much more. Perhaps much of that is based on George Harrison’s secrecy before his sickness progressed to terminal levels.
