Default Does anyone listen to actual cd's anymore?

I have a cell phone/mp3 player/mediocre camera/mediocre camcorder and I can listen to it using earphones(obviously), but I also can plug into my stereo at home and my car stereo.

I'm just wondering do people still listen to cd's?

When I'm with my family we use them in the car... aside from that I don't think I ever use them anymore.

Also, I don't actually own the physical disk for pretty much all the music I listen to.

I own my favourite CDs (physical albums) I only have around 5% of the music I have on my laptop (all pirated) but when I listen to the CDs, THEY SOUND BETTER!

Yes I do still listen to CD's. Mainly in the car, but I do have a old stereo system in my basement, in the drum room, I use to play along with.

These days never. At a high enough bitrate (like 320kbps) you'd need a good hi-fi to tell the difference. I can only tell the difference if I listen to one straight after the other. If you've got a high end sound system it's a different story of course. Even albums I have on CD I listen to on my computer. Also, without getting into a debate about the ethical side of music piracy, fact is I can't afford CDs these days. It's not a case of buy it or pirate it, it's a case of pirate it or don't hear it. If I didn't struggle to put petrol in my car and food on the table it would be a different story.

When I drive in my car I like to use the CD player. No, I don't pirate music. I haven't downloaded much, but I payed for mine. I don't steal and I wouldn't too happy if somebody stole something from me. Hey anybody ever listen to those black shiny plastic things that you set a needle on (****shows his age *********)-- LP records? What about 8 tracks?

Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction.
