I read this earlier but my post wasn't posted for some reason. Anyhow I think this is FANTASTIC news as it would allow EP's music to come alive in surround sound 5.1 . I pods I am not too impressed with as far as sound quality goes. About High Def-I just bought a High Definition TV this week and it is AMAZING! They're coming out to my home tomorrow to hook up a Tivo and HD Cable. I can't wait to see all my favorite stations in High Definition! I watched the game last night through the local antenna channels in High Def and the picture quality is unbelievable! It was like I was on the field with the players.
Back to topic-I think EP's concerts would be the best and most logical way to go with this new technology. I think they would sell at record numbers by all the EP fans who would want to upgrade their live CD's from stereo to High Def. I will definitely be one of 'em.
