If hard drive betters optical digital retrieval

Then why doesn't someone develope a cd/dvd player that reads the disk transfers the data to hard drive, and plays it back from the hard drive since it sounds better?
Then when another disk is inserted does it all over again writing over the old data.

The new $24k Boulder basically does this, but it uses a memory buffer, not a hard drive.

I expect to see more of this type of thing as solid state storage matures.
