    NY Times Article - "New Audio Geeks"

    Interesting read, particularly regarding the generational differences in how we access/listen to our music. Of course it contains the typical popular press misunderstanding of several things regarding digital audio. Corrected a bit by some of the comments, but plenty of myths also perpetuated by the commenters.

    Read it in it's entirety, including the comments. One it particular even laments the demise of the Squeezebox! Overall, the story gives hope that at least some former iPod/MP3 devotees are beginning to appreciate listening to uncompressed music with a decent hi-fi or headphones.
