Fraunhofer states that they have come up with a new codec called HD-AAC
that allegedly provides better sound quality than audio CDs.

My question is whether we need another lossless codec after all. Don't we have excellent codecs like FLAC and TAK which are both free and open-source (FLAC at least)?

Why does everyone and his grandmother keep ringing the death-knell for CDs? As far as I am concerned, I will never buy anything only in its digital form. If I can't hold it and touch it, I won't spend money on it.

That being said, I can't see any inherent advantages of this format over FLAC which is now becoming popular even commercially. This might be yet another thing that was dead even before it was conceived...
