I've been re-burning discs with the static problem, but at some point I expect I'll replace my CD changer. I'll probably end up getting a DVD player or changer -- something that can play standard CDs and DVDs, as well as CD-R, CD-RW and MP3. If I could find one that also played SHNs and FLACs, I'd be in hog heaven.
Anyone want a couple of discs of Branford Marsalis at the Village Vanguard in 2001? Not guaranteed to play without static on your CD player.
