I wonder if you could combine blue ray tech with the size of those old huge laserdisks and have an analog CD reader...
None of that made any sense. Audio compact discs are digital, not analog. However, Laserdisc was analog video—hence the need for such a large disc. And what does Blu-ray have to do with any of this?
Most Blu-ray players can also play DVDs because they have a dual laser head. Since I don't have a set-top BD player, I don't know if they handle audio CD, as well. All three formats use different frequency lasers.
If you want to be nostalgic for old formats, see if there are any CED
players still functioning.
