Much as I liked the format a few years ago, I believe advances in
solid state memory have doomed the MD. I think at this point it needs
to be seen as a transitional technology rapidly giving way to solid
state recorders. I think the ATRAC algorithm was brilliant & provided
vastly (audibly) superior data reduction over MP3. However, it just
seems irrelevant anymore to have to consider any lossy scheme for
anything other than extremely long continuous recordings. Sad to see
MD go the way of the dodo, but technology marches on.
