Who else plays CD's?
CD's are still the best IMO.

who else tries to listen to mostly CD's and collects some?

I have a **** ton of them - probably more than 1000. But I don't really listen to them anymore. I don't have room for them, but if you're specifically looking for lossless audio and you want an easy way to support the artist and have room for them, CDs are great.

I'm at 2200 and counting. I still buy a lot of CDs. I think I picked up about 30 in August.

CDs still hold the best sound award.

Imo actually playing the Disc on a nice system will Trump any HiRes stream.

Streaming services also have crap for selection if you want to listen to anything even remotely not mainstream. Also I've noticed a lot if compression in the sound of some of the music on Streaming services, they Streaming in high resolution but it's still be stored in crap.

I have the remaining amount of CDs in my car that I rotate. Can't do the Aux cord because only one speaker works when I do that. So it's CDs for now

I have a whole bunch and, yes, I listen to them. Not in my car anymore since my new car doesn't have a CD player, but on my stereo that's all I listen to.

I probably had around 1500 CD's 10 years ago. Sold about half of them over several months a few years ago and have bought maybe a hundred since. Have around 900 now.

I have about 200 cds, which feels like a lot to me. About half are original store-bought albums, but all the recent ones are of music I've downloaded and burned.
How do I play them? The quieter music on a home stereo, the louder stuff in my car.

I'm more of a vinyl guy but, like Lisna, I had about 200 CD's at the peak of my collecting. I've since burned everything onto MP3s.

There was a mix CD sitting in the player when I got the vehicle I'm in a few months back. I let it play through and the only tune I recognized was a Skrillex song, so I tossed it. Just about every CD I've owned is scratched to hell and sitting in a box, but I have more mix CD's than actual albums. The majority of the music I listen to resides on ext HD's.
