CD Audio length

Post by boat » Thu Nov 13, 2003 4:33 pm

just a tidbit i found out a coupla weeks ago...

the length of an audio cd is based on one man's music tastes. when they were trying to come up with the standard/format, when asked how long a cd should be, one of the contributors suggested taht it be long enough it fit one of beethovens' symphonies (5th symphony i think :-? :oops: ) on it w/o interruption...which came out to 74 minutes.

:D
