As an old quadraphonic vinyl fan, I enjoy the surround effects (although some producers admittedly went WAY over the top). The idea of beyond CD quality with DVD movie surround sound is something I am looking forward to, and I believe it will be the "next big thing" as far as consumer audio is concerned, at least I hope so.<P>Naturally, though, it will be replaced in 10-20 years by something thats cheaper, better sounding, and more rugged with no moving parts other than your eardrums. That's the way it goes with technology. Just as you get a good collection in place, it's obsolete!
