Introducing Digital Audio

The advent of digital audio enables anyone with a personal computer to make reasonably acceptable (and, depending on the format, bit-for-bit perfect) digital copies of songs from compact discs, and to store these copies on their computer's hard disk. Digital audio also lets any PC user with an Internet connection trade songs with other users, and download copies of songs that other users have made. In addition, digital audio lets users download their favorite songs to portable audio players and listen to them while they're away from the computers.
