CD's are a budget minded choice now. I'm a platter lover forever so I welcome it though with a sigh as LP's have gotten so expensive. During the dominance of cd's, records and vintage equipment were a bargain. So the market has flipped. Who knows, the future may do it's fickle finger of fate again in a nostalgia for the promise of "perfect sound forever" after the baby boomers become a footnote in history.

Fickle finger of fate! Gotta love it!

I'll digress on that for a moment on that one. I have a disk set with the Laugh-In series on it. So great to see all the laughin', drinkin' and smokin'! Just awesome.

I don't drink or smoke anymore though. Still, good times!

On the vinyl albums, that's freaking hysterical. And awesome. I can remember 20 years ago when some audiophiles lamented that the audio apocalypse was here 'cause there were no vinyl lovers anymore.

But we've always been a small niche bunch and for some reason, we never see that. We think we're shrinking, but in fact, we've never been a large group.

All that aside, I think the main reason CD has declined is most kids today download audio files onto whatever media they own rather than to purchase some sort of removable media.

"Oh the humanity!"

Just a matter of time ..... The nay sayers were wrong. Not that it mattered to me with 6 turntables and many LPs. The cost though is bad..but the days when I could get a new LP for under $3 are long past and if you go by inflation $25-30 is probably not out of line. Thinking back I was only getting paid about 5K a year...now my retirement is more than that per month. Rolling Eyes

Good Listening

I have quite a few LPs from the 70s to the 90s. I'm guessing around a hundred. After the move is over I'll be going through them and, if any are unplayable, I'll just order replacements from an online store.
