    Today I was in my car and I put in a cd that has text info on it so it would scroll the name of the album and then the title of the track on my deck.
    Then I was thinking what if they came out with a source (DVD/CD player, or car deck) that scrolled the lyrics being sung on it's display? I mean like closed captioning or something, but in sync with what you hear.

    Is this already out and I don't know it?

    Anyway, I just thought that that'd be cool.

    Yes, Ive already mastered the art of driving while eating, shaving, and talking on my cell phone. Reading little tiny text on my head unit would definately add some excitement to my morning commute. It sure does get boring staring at all those cars in front of me.

    I mean for all players as a more standard feature. Without the bouncing cue ball.

    Lyrics are copyrighted, they would have get permission from artist/label to do that, don't expect to see it soon.

    That type of information (lyrics) would need to be imbeded on the CD, and arent CDs already over compressed (hence the push toward DVDA and SACD)?

    CDs are not compressed, they use uncompressed PCM wave file.
