I don't think the genre matters, really. I'm not much of a classical afficionado, but my tastes are not exactly mainstream either, and I always find something worth listening to.

I don't think many book authors have the option of raising their live performance prices to compensate for cheap eBooks.
So how's that working for movies, or TV shows?

As a librarian, I think you should be all for DRM.
Heck, no. It's a daily royal PITA.

It's central to the only library eBook system that's working at all, Overdrive.
I think your world view might be somewhat limited. There are other systems as well, and some of which even forego DRM. In academic circles Springer does exactly that: they licence all of their books for university-wide use for a yearly flat fee. They seem to be doing fine.
