If you want to keep high quality sound, then you have to keep file sizes larger, which then negates the whole portability issue.
Granted, storage is getting cheaper, but it'll be some time yet before we get better and cheaper.
I like CD's, and the new SACD is even better and would kill even a modest 60gig hard drive.
For me it's not cumbersome to carry CD's in my car.
That's why I dislike BMW's insistence on single CD players.
Everyone else can manage a 6CD changer in the dash except BMW.
Darn shame. iPod is no substitute for that.
256bit encoded MP3s are quite good. Most of my 500GB plus library is setup that way.
