A survey of the music habits of consumers aged 13 and up has confirmed that the music industry is experiencing some vast changes, and is increasingly reliant upon digital methods of distribution.  In 2008, fewer people bought CDs and more people turned to authorized, online music services than ever before.

Buried in the rubble of an audio disc format war, with no winner, lie the remains of two high-resolution audio formats, SACD and DVD-Audio. These formats held tremendous potential in their day and have left the audiophile and music enthusiast communities desperate for a high-resolution answer to their audio questions. A deeper casualty from the high-resolution audio format war has been the death of the concept of the album and the near death of music mixed specifically for surround sound. While Hollywood movies in the theater and on various disc formats, HD video game titles, and even Las Vegas shows like Love and Blue Man Group are designed to wow audiences with high-resolution audio in at least 5.1 channels, today’s music is increasingly being sold the easiest way possible – through low-resolution downloads for easy consumption on iPods and computers alike.

Before the days of grunge and during a time when the compact disc offered the consumer a fair value for $18.99, the domestic music business briskly sold north of 30 billion dollars’ worth of music per year. Powered by catchy pop acts and surprisingly well-crafted rock and metal, the music business in the early 1990s made a product that could be sold in a profitable format in high volumes and that mainstream consumers truly wanted. Roll the tape forward just a few years and couple the Nirvana-esque, “I don’t care if I tune my guitar, brush my hair or even blow my brains out, whatever” attitude with the grunge scene, and you see the beginning of the problem. Add in the commercial success of Apple’s iPod paired with the launch of the DVD, which gave consumers both an audio and a video experience that lasted two-plus hours, had supplemental goodies, surround sound and ...
