I keep a big collection of CD's with that system and that's what I listen to. Often with a computer or Ipod type arrangement you can't resist fiddling, and you stop listening. A bit like trying to choose something to watch when you have dozens of channels.
A brilliant statement completely sums it up for me :clap:
I haven't sat down and listened to a cd for years though, I don't even have a cd player. They are all ripped to FLAC and then stored in the loft.
I don't buy any downloads because the quality is rubbish. Would I buy downloads if I could get the same quality as CD, no probably not. The only way I would possibly convert to buying media in download format would be if you could get proper Hi-res downloads. Even then they would have to be the same price if not cheaper than the CD counterpart.
CD's will die out though, as my generation (and that's young compared to a lot of you on here :-D) stops sucking air the younger generation, who are growing up with downloads, will carry on doing just that and the CD will be consigned to history.
