granted it's unbelievably expensive, and you have to rip your own
disks. Or this magnificent example of Swiss engineering:
Or for the more practical: http://www.tivo.com/4.9.asp,
It seems that hard drive storage is the wave of the futur, the real
battle will be what quality of music will be on there. I like many
still find vinyl to have a bit of an edge.
And, lastly I don't remember the composers of Europe, and Asia,
holding off on creating music because they couldn't sell their
records (actually such a thing didn't exist.) I think people will
still be making music the distribution will have changed.
