True.

So (too?) many gadgets currently available to amuse the masses instead.

That's why I so loved growing up in the 70's, so many people into audio. Big ass speakers, reel to reels, super expensive Nakamichi worship... etc.

I still hold out hope that music in high res surround sound will capture the imagination of the young. All we need is a young artist/band to create the next "Sgt. Pepper" or "Dark Side Of The Moon" in that format exclusively. Oh, and for it to be popular. \:\)

Super Furry Animals tried at least with "Rings Around The World"...

I'm afraid your right. Case in point. Here at work today, two of my friends returned from the holidays bragging about their Boxing day finds. The first was a Sony receiver with no HDMI ports, a built in DVD player and only composite and older inputs,(that's right "composite".) But it was an awesome deal because it was a Sony was her reply to my inquiries. The other was a small subwoofer chosen because it fits in a cabinet.

I refrained from negatively commenting on their purchases so as to not destroy their excitement.
