People are not demanding these day, so manufactures don't bother.

I agree. I store all my music in Apple lossless on my ipod and listen at home on Apple TV (digital optical to stereo). I recently put in one of my older DVD Audio Cd's. Quality is MUCH improved. Not sure I would go back to dealing with CD's in the car though.

Would be nice if future Ipods had even more storage and could actually store DVD quality surround sound music.

I had my music at 192kps MP3 and could easily hear the sound degradation. Drove me nuts actually. I gave up on MP3's. Even in the car it doesn't sound good enough for me. At home, forget it!! Like one post said, seems most get used to the "compression noise". Perhaps in a few years Cd's will go the way of LP's and compressed music will be hallmark of sound. If people can say Lp's sound better than Cd's, why not. Noise must make the music.
