Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Downloads are "better, faster, cheaper".

I understand what you are saying Tony.

This is the reason 'in a nutshell' why industrial lossless music downloads [ie Sony Records, BMG et.al.] are not common place...note this is 5+ years old. My business instructor explained, as with all things time=money. Servers on the industrial scale needs to be able to make X-amount of profit/time period. Downloading lossless music has not yet been able to prove itself profitable enough to replace the hardcopy CD in terms of profit/time and demand for product. For small companies who servers do not download 24/7/365 individual sales of lossless data can tern enough profit to justify sales.

Still, imo CD'players aren't going anywhere soon. There is just too much legacy product around.
