    CDs are even more valuable as a playback medium, with the advent of the Direct Stream Memory Player from PS audio.

    Does this gizmo play the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround-sound track of Blu-ray discs for classical concerts, opera, and ballet?

    I've got several players. I even have a Walmart DVD player that cost $40 that plays CDs as well as any of my other players.

    Any suggestions for the best online sources for blank CDs? None of the retailers in my town carry then anymore.

    I’ve had good luck through Amazon with plenty of choice:

    Prices have come way down and I generally stick with brand names. I do not always burn discs at the fastest speed for sometimes better results.

    You act like you're 12 years old sometimes.

    You act like you're 112 years old, all the time.

    BTW, I liked your 12-year-old humor in post #48. That guy is a real poopy-head!
