Happy Birthday to the CD

http://blog.wired.com/gadgets/2007/0...t-disk-is.html

Wow 25 years eh, yeah they're being replaced by DVD's and SS storage but they're still extremely useful.

With the HD format wars ongoing this is still going quite strong. Actually I wonder why music is still being sold on CD still? I half expected them to be sold on some sort of Compact flash disk by now.

Must be because no-one particularly feels like replacing their 20-year old audiophile equipment. =)

I hear CDs aren't as durable nowadays as they used to make them: is that true?

Hehe...didn't Sony/Phillips introduce some DVD-Audio format? Clearly that hasn't seen much in the way of adoption at all.

What? 25 years? That means the CD existed in 1982! I didn't know that.

/ME takes some notes

Think some newer disc are actually thinner, but don't know if it makes them less durable. However some older decks do have trouble reading them, especially top loaders.
Philips and sony introduced super audio cd, SACD, it was competing against DVD-audio, from dvd forum.

Thanks for clearing it up for me, Sides.

Looks like there hasn't been any format replacement for the CD which has been successful. Unless you count iTunes of course =P

The CD are still used a lot but slowly they die and DVD's will take their place.

Artists aren't going to record that many songs on a single album, so CDs are still very much viable. Higher quality recordings probably would have negligible difference on most people's audio systems, and even hearing that difference is quite difficult. What would succeed the CD, is something of smaller physical format with greater protection. Could be anything. =P

Never ever underestimate the power of a good placebo. If people are told it has better quality, most of them will think they can notice the difference.

I burned one... last week! I use them for bootable OS CD's for troubleshooting.

The only thing i can think is, to have the instruments and vocals stored on separated tracks, so one could listen either to a piece as a whole or listen to the single tracks. That would be a reason to require bigger storage. But other than that their is no real point, except for live recording, to use something different than a CD.
