  • I love CDs, and find buying all your music online just isnt as fun as buying a cd, or, even better if they still made them, record albums. What do you guys think? And do you think that CDs will ever be abolished from the Earth?

  • I haven't played a CD in years and I am not too keen on them. I play all my music from my PC and enjoy the ease of it. My wife had around 300 cd's in the cellar we tried to get rid of at a flee market. We sold 7.... so I guess I am not the only one not interested in these shiny discs.

    Yes they will soon be obsolete.
    Not collecting any more but I still enjoy comics now and then...

  • I disagree. I am having issues with older downloads and getting them onto newer computers, or ipods. But CDs, that's simple, just rip them again. I love album art, I love bonus tracks, I love B-sides when you accidentally buy the delux version of the album.

    But I do agree, no one buys CDs at garage sales. No one wants something that's going to skip.

  • I use Spotify whenever I want to listen to music, with that there is absolutely no reason to buy a cd ever again.

    Yeah, the cover art is one reason why ive always liked cds, although today the cover "art" usually consists of the musician opn the cover with some random backround. There not very creative at all today in music in general, but thats just my opinion.

  • I love buying music in a physical format, whether it be CD's, Vinyl records, or even the occasional cassette tape. I almost never buy digital audio files unless it's a last resort. I admit, a lot of the time I just use the computer for my music source but thats only out of shear convenience and portability and a majority of my collection is rips from my CD's and records. If you don't buy pre-recorded physical formats, you should at least back up your digital file collection onto a permanent format such as a disc. I don't know how anyone can say, "No, I don't own a single CD or any other physical audio storage medium." I believe CD's will be made for at least another 15 years.

  • exactly, i mean, how did people who say that they don't own any cds get music before it was available online? They had to buy CDs! Someday soon they may be obsolete though, which is what im kinda worried about. But, if it happens, it happens

  • I use to love CD's in college before the onset of DVD's - then I loved DVD's and spent most spending money accordingly - truth is though - I wish I could go back and take all the money I spent on CD's and then all the money I spent on DVD's and used it to buy comics back then instead!

    CD's and DVD's just aren't collectible to me in the same way - that true printed media is - with computers/handhelds and services like netflix I no longer feel the need to own them - at some point a few years ago I decided I would only continue to collect books and comics for a few reasons - 1 it's just not very practical to enjoy books/comics digitally imo, 2 I should still be able to read long into retirement, 3 books and comics will last - gave up on video games for this reason because books and comics don't require any hardware to "play" and 4 - there's just too much stuff these days - can't buy it all!

    BTW - I also think there's such a glut of CD's available second hand because people just rip the discs and then sell them...

  • I completely agree with your last statement haha. Alot of people make a living off selling bootleg CDs and DVDs.
    And, I guess its true that its better to spend your money on com ics then electronics, and I definetly choose comics over CDs and DVDs, but, for some reason, I HAVE to buy my favorite Cds and movies on DVD, I get an impulse and feel terrible until I buy it. Its very strange haha. But I would be better off iof i could hold off buying CDs and DVDS, I would have a way bigger comicbook collection

  • I buy CDs. I like buying CDs. Don't like digital copies, and don't pirate any music or movies/tv shows unless they aren't available through legal means... which is very rare

    Yes it takes up physical space but I don't care. They look good on the walls, along with my massive DVD collection (see Comic book movies here for a small sample of my DVD collection)

    that's all I've got to say on the topic.
