    Hi Suzzanna

    That is an excellent illustration – and the relative sizes really tell the story.
    You wouldn’t happen to have the original link, would you ??
    Many thanks

    Paul

    Hi there,

    Was not to sure which post was most relevant in this category however; I thought yourself and your readers may be interested in this opensourse project

    http://dvd-audio.sourceforge.net/

    It allows you to author (burn) 24bit audio dvd’s each containing up to 9 groups of 99 tracks each.

    Hope somebody finds it useful with all these albums to download now…

    Regards

    George.
