    Well, there are quite a lot of inacuracies, but the point was to just get the word out about it.

    From the article;

    "Iverson says it will take more must-have catalog releases before consumers start replacing CDs with the new formats in mass quantities.

    He recalled a recent trip to the record store where he spent a half-hour explaining to the store's personnel what SACD and DVD-Audio was.

    "Educating the public is a key issue here for these formats to become more successful," Iverson says, "and I don't really see people making a big effort in this regard."


    Good luck, it's a "pearls before swine" issue again.
    They will have to be beaten over the head. This is especially true in North America where new technologies
    (like widescreen) are more difficult to introduce than
    in say Europe or Japan.

    But proponents say it took the CD format years to make real inroads among consumers."

    Yes, but DVD only took 2-3 years.
