Title: CD player production ends at Linn
Post by: dsanchez on March 06, 2010, 05:37:46
Linn Products has become the first manufacturer to announce it will give up on CDs from the start of next year. Instead, the niche company, based in East Renfrewshire, will focus on producing digital streaming equipment.

The firm, which makes systems costing from £2,500 to more than £100,000, said discerning customers recognised the superior quality of digital streaming.

Yet it continues to make turntables for vinyl records, as there remains a demand for the quality of sound compression offered by older record technology.
