Consumer Reports

Richer in sound Compact Discs | (UPI) After a 10 percent drop in compact disc sales last year, the record industry is trying to attract baby boomers to buy CDs richer in sound and appeal.

The discs in question are not in the 20-year-old CD format but in two more advanced forms: super audio compact disc and DVD-Audio, The New York Times reports.

Both contain music remastered in high-resolution digital audio, often in cinematic surround sound, like DVD movies.

Although the two formats have been around for years, recordmakers have lowered their prices to typical CD levels and labels are re-releasing classic albums such as Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon."
