Until iTunes starts selling higher quality digital downloads I will buy CDs. Also it would be nice if they had a better selection of classical music.

All the new CDs I've purchased in the last few years have been blank CD-Rs for archiving mp3s or for use in my truck that has a CD player but no USB port or audio jack. It's the rarest of CDs or digital albums hat has only excellent tracks. Why buy the crummy tracks just to get the keepers?

I bought a nice compilation recently, otherwise all my stuff is real old. I try not to give money to record companies but i still don't like digital downloads. Not happy about the sound quality and the lack of real ownership.

Like, a physical CD?? No! Why would I want that? I but the digital albums! (unless the band has stated that they do not mind piracy, in which case i sample the wares before buying individual songs. That's rare, though)

I love CDs. There's just something about them! Just a few of the ones I purchased: Snow Patrol - Up Till Now, Mayday Parade - Mayday Parade, Jimmy Eat World - Catch This Light

Yes! Actually! Within the last ten months, I have just fell in love with music. I probably have purchased about 10 physical CDs and 10+ albums on iTunes. And even more singles.

Yes, I buy CDs for my 3 year-old from time to time because, well, he likes them and because they are almost always dirt cheap at Target or Wal-Mart. It helps that my kid would rather listen to a Bach or Beethoven cd than modern music, though.

Stopped buying iTunes. Started buying used CDs. Once I found out I was just borrowing my huge music collection I won't buy anymore iTunes.

Paid over $70 for a used cd: Switched On Bach by Walter/Wendy Carlos. Original album 1969, cd from 1984.

@ladyniner......uh, you only get viruses from dodgy mp3 sites so that's on you if you decide to use those websites. If you use iTunes or other accredited sites you should be fine.
It's not technology it's the human that can't use the technology.

My friends who consider themselves to be "artsy musical geniuses" with eclectic taste, have to buy the CD's to look like real music enthusiasts.
CD's sound good, but they're dying off. Digital is cheaper, quick and you don't have to overpay for a lot of songs you don't like on an album.
