Re: HD Disc Format War Not Over By a Long Shot
You are right, most people (the mainstream consumer) do not care. We certainly only clouded the issue more with the format war.
And, low and behold, the record companies do not care. Thus, the demise of SACD and DVD-A. People on this forum have to realize that the high end community represents a small market, compared to the rest. Now, there have been opportunities where we could have gotten more people to gain interest. I believed High Definition was one of those areas.
But, we shot ourselves in the foot, with the format war.. We don`t get many chances like this!!
A few weeks ago I listened to Dan at Krell at Sound by Singer talk about why he made the KID for the I - Pod. 125 million people have bought those little music servers. 125 million!!!!!!!!!!! They are hoping to tap somehow into that marketplace. Dan and Krell have the vision, what about the rest of the industry??!!
