..I've been using Windows Media Player 9 for a couple weeks now, and I gotta say, it's pretty darn nice. I've been copying a bunch of my CD's into 192k .WMA files and they actually sounds pretty darn nice. I REALLY like the fact that it will let you copy from the CD and listen to your music at the same time. It will start copying from the CD, and then start playing the tracks that it has copied. It's not a big technical leap, but it is a nice feature not having the wait around for the copy to finish before you can listen. I don't have any intention on copying the music to any sort of portable device or anything, so the .WMA format is perfect for me. I've also noticed this "Windows Media Audio Professional" compression that it says is mathematically lossless.
