Computer Audio System anyone?....

Digital edge has really taking us in the fast lane in every aspects of our life and this also has an effect to our hobby, listening to music.

There are various format of hi-res audio and they are all look promising and for me to venture into CAS is alright...but, I'd like so see the stability of the format and availability of recorded hi-res music.

I don't like the idea of getting the material from cds to HDD/SSD and if that the case, I'd rather stick to cds...period. No doubt there is an improvement over upsampling etc. But I just don't buy the idea, it just like copy a vinyl into a cd for convenient reason. I have to agree that less moving parts in player will further enhance the playback and I 'll say SSD is the best.

In future I hope to see shops selling maybe a code (download over internet), or maybe a flash drive contain music material which you can transfer to music server/SSD. Buying online is more likely for digital music and in the future we can see closing down of music shops...

The CAS is okay in technology advancement...but I'd rather wait or perhaps enjoy this archaic format while I can...
