Re: CD vs Vinyl
I don't fault the iPod, yes it has weak sonics, but in the 80's we all were listening to Sony Walkman's, how good was that sound? Pretty lame as I recall, but it kept us involved with music, and the iPod does this as well. Sure, not all iPod users will get into this hobby to any significant degree, but they are all potential high end geaks waiting to be released!
If you took 100 seriously hooked iPod people and exposed them to their music on a good system, uncompressed source, many of them would be floored, never realizing what they had been missing and likely would become interested. This is what I expect will happen, at least hope.
At least they are involved in the music, and that is the start of this hobby.....
