Yes...I noticed it several years ago before leaving the U.S. in 
mid-2004. It is the same here in Canada from the limited looking that 
I've done.

What's worse, is that Sony discontinued the CDR-W33 CD writer which 
was one of the joys of simple digital conversions.

My kids use cheap DVD players as CD players but they lack the 
displays and really need a TV which is not going to happen in the 
kids' rooms for a while.
