Multimedia, AV Many of us grew up with the idea of the component audio system. A receiver (or a separate preamplifier and amplifier), tuner (radio), record player, tape deck, and later on a CD player. If you were into more fancy stuff, you had a DAT or MiniDisc deck as well. While some of us cling on to this mindset like there's no tomorrow, the real world seems to favour a different method of consuming music. According to Erica Ogg (what's in a name), the component audio system is on its way out - thanks to the iPod and the commoditisation of music.

It's been "a few years" since one could go to a Pink Floyd show.


November last year - no current dates though...

I'm not sure if that would classify as Floyd. I saw Waters after they broke up when he toured with Clapton playing Floyd songs. 5 man band. It was amazing. Then I saw Gilmore later when he toured with his Floyd. 20 musicians on stage. So much processing you couldn't even who was playing what. Definately didn't feel like a Pink Floyd show other than the lights and sound system.
My 2 cents.
