A CD is still just another digital music format. A vinyl is the real deal. It's a real psychical duplicate of the music. So for that reason I think it's very symbolic and musicians will continue to release on vinyl if only for the tradition of it, and the ever growing collection of enthusiasts.

It was a fine warm up for the digital music world, though, as far as keeping the music available in one format or another, and while it will still be around for quite a while in my opinion, it's mainly going to be with genres that have a strong standing fan base ranging from Underground Metal to the most mainstream of Country (Always proven to have fans who stand by their performers) while the Pop world will move onto the Internet for it's quick-fix scene.

I can see both The CD and the vinyl living good lives with music fans who need to have the physical work of art in their hands.
Well said.

Vinyl is the ultimate vanity format.

I want to be able to actually listen to my music collection not have it looking pretty in a big sleeve on a shelf.

I was glad to see the back of my vinyl collection.

And CD's are not going to be replaced by downloads just yet. Not while people like my parents exist.

I hardly own any CDs. I don't download either. Only stuff I have on my computer is instrumentals, beats, and songs I've made over those beats. I usually just youtube everything when I want to hear music. And in the car I listen to the radio a little bit, but mainly just spend the drive freestyling.

You sound a bit like a friend of mine. I don't know how you can do it. YouTube's quality is horrible and they usually don't have anything but singles.

Only times I really listen to music are when I'm at my computer just ****in around on facebook or here or wherever. I don't like to exercise with music and i dont like to listen to it when i drive. I probably listen to a lot less music than most people here

I think it's a perfectly acceptable way of finding something to listen to. Youtube usually has what you're looking for anyways, and there's no waiting time. It's like people who get high and mighty with their high-def telvisions and Blu-Ray players and consider films on VHS an abomination... IT'S THE SAME MOVIE

If CDs went extinct, I would stop paying for music. I won't pay money for something intangible, like a file, when I can get the exact same product for free. Vinyl is unfortunately, not as affordable to collect, so I doubt I would turn to it.

Yeah, it's fine to find stuff. I don't say you should download every song you just want to hear once or twice... but relying on it as your main source of music is something I could just never do. The artists put a lot of work into their music, and the producers put a lot of work into the mixes, so why drown all that work out with over compression or poor bit rate.

I can't relate to the VHS thing because I hate VHS and I'm glad that we as a society have found a better means of preserving artwork.

It's like another friend of mine who's speakers are either completely treble or completely bass and the only reason he doesn't care is because he can't tell the difference. I'm not saying you can't, I'm just saying because it bothers the heck outta me when my music sounds like an Edison Era Wax Tube when it could sound like they were right in front of me.
