So what are you supposed to do with the "old" stuff [which may be expensive/high-end equipment]........chuck it???? I would love to see a re-birth of SACD/DVD-A! Just my 2 cents!
I agree that chucking is not good. Though, it seems sometimes they expect us as audiophiles to do so. Like we have all this disposable income lying around the house.
I just said this on another thread, depending on how far this all goes, should a lot more discs become available, what we may need is what I proposed during the format wars. A true "universal player"that plays sd cd`s, sacd`s, dvd-a`s, and blu-ray discs. Those of us that still have current universals, I guess we use them until they die off. Its unfortunate, but what else can we do at this point?
