With the advent of CD-Rom technology, are brands like McIntosh still on the market? I've read that sound aficionados prefer the old technology with whatever impurities exist to the too-pure digitally reproduced sounds now; seems a contradiction, since the goal of the hi-fi guys was to achieve a cleaner, purer, sound, I thought. Then when it arrived it was too clean for their taste; at least that's something I read. Somebody tell me the score. I put on the cd-rom and it sounds good to me, plus I don't imagine I'm scratching the record as with the old long-plays with the diamond needle, not to mention the old 45 "rock around the clock" rpm records we used to spill beer on.
