With the capacity of a holographic optical disc, we would never have to take it out of the player. According to ExtremeTech, it could hold our entire collections (and more) on a single disc and we do not mean MP3s, but the highest quality audio.
For all the geeks and nerds like ourselves, here is an original research paper to read.
Some might find the holographic optical disc very useful and convenient, but for majority of us the super-sensitive and stubborn audiophiles will simply not do the job. We would not want to miss the whole fun and joy of flipping and changing discs or not being able to hold record’s artwork and admire its contents.
The new medium definitely seems to be cool and is worth following to see how it will develop and progress...or disappear. So as old school sound lovers we are opposed to yet another invention that may endanger our favorite formats in their classic forms. On the other side, we pay our respect to the scientists and we are in awe for their huge discovery.
But the fight is still on.
