I get nervous if I don't have a copy on my hard drive... I horde music.

I prefer CDs I have about 90 at home. It sucks that there are about 30 which I can't copy on my mp3 because the computer has a problem with reading them(probably because of some copy protection, most of them are new). I also like the booklets in them.
Only thing that really annoys me is how fast the CD cases are damaged and get scratched(moved 2 times=most of the CD cases look old) :/

I find digital downloads, or online music more reliable more reliable than CD's. They're also much easier to acquire thanks to certain websites.


You must be a pirate too....

I've been downloading music for a few years now, I don't trust buying CD's straight off the selves anymore, seeing as you don't know what you're really buying into if you haven't heard what's on it before. Too risking. Thank internet for downloading/previewing music. :D


Come on, that's half the fun of buying a CD!

Given the choice between a CD and a 320 KB/s MP3, I'll gladly take the CD any day, both for the satisfying feeling of owning a physical copy of the music and the visceral thrill of tearing the cellophane shrink-wrap off as well as PCM's glorious audio quality.

But given the choice between a CD and a 192 KHz FLAC...

Hit me up with that FLAC!

It's really too bad that Blu-ray Audio never caught on... that gives you ridiculously high fidelity and a physical disc in the same package.

Online. Easier to find, quicker to download than actually to buy (well, not always, but I can just do other stuff while it's downloading), can be higher quality, you can't physically lose it, and if I really need a CD, I'll just burn it.

CDs as Amazon doesn't offer FLAC. Vinyl is much better in terms of SQ but finding vinyl of new music is difficult as its rarely done. What would really be nice is if DVD-Audio took off. Then I could have digital music that's as good as vinyl on a media format that doesn't degrade every time you play it. Edit: There is Super Audio CD but its rather proprietary and requires a separate player and as such, isn't widely used.

CDs. You can put music from CDs on the computer, as many times as you like without fear of DRM. Also, it can be used in a ton of devices, while you can't easily swap devices w/ electronic media.

Arrrgh! Digital all the way.

CDs are for my car, only because its safer than listening to an Ipod while driving.

As for paying. I got nothing wrong with buying them, digitally of course, but most of the time I dont. If it is easier to obtain through purchase, though, I usually will not hesitate to buy a song.

It's a shame how it's dying. I have some more coming in the mail from Converge and Silver Mt. Zion that I have to spin. Records sound GREAT.

Have to go with CDs, as they are already capable with car stereos and my jeep doesn't have a USB port for online music via Ipod. Though online music is much more convenient as it is faster to get.
