I have a music server. To be honest, it isn't the revolution I thought it would be. Frankly, I still enjoy opening the cd and listening to it for the first time on my "reference" player rather than the server.
As to lossless, I had my money down on an Audio ReQuest unit last winter. It was $2200 and did lossless. I just could not come up with the scratch so I bought an Escient Fireball SE80. It only does MP3 320 kbs. You would be hard pressed to tell the difference between it and a cd. Hard pressed.
I buy my cds on line. From Amazon. I can usually preview every song, they offer twenty different sellers........It is cheap and easy.
The under thirty crowd have beaten this one into the ground-"if cds weren't so expensive, we would not download" . From the get go I have considered downloading "free" music stealing. Unless and artist wants their music downloaded, if you aren't paying for it, it is stealing. If gas wasn't so expensive I wouldn't have to steal it would be a similar argument.....
Frankly this topic is the classic "the sky is falling" stuff. I don't think the cd is dying, but if it is then as long as there is money to be had, and people want to enjoy music, you can bet there will be a way to deliver it.
