Downloads are OK if the quality is there to burn to CD, but to me that only at 320kbps with a decent quality encoder for mp3, or ideally .wav files.
.wav files are available on some sites, but there's usually a £1, $1 or €1 sort of premium to pay on top

I think my preference is music downloads. Easier to manage.

Very rarely find much in HMV unless your just after whats on the radio etc - which I generally aint

Actually I have to wonder how long stores like that can survive for music sales compared to online retailers who also have good preview clips of everything etc.

i think computer nerds like us and Dj's are only really aware of DL sites mainly, joe public still utilize HMV and iTunes, there is still stigma with value for money by actually obtaining an actual cd and case with some people too

I am pretty sure I read an article about HMV being directly affected by online music sales from other rival outlets funnily enough. It must affect them.

Its not the actual CD thing so much for me - its that I absolutely refuse to pay the price of a CD single for an equiv number of poor quality 128kbit mp3s.

And I will never (while we still have a choice) buy DRMd electronic formats.

And I must admit - I do often read the crap that gets stuck in the CD case, and still these days I listen to CDs (and even vinyl EPs still) more than mp3s at home, though just use the ipod away from home.


There is one plus side for mp3 etc is that on an album full of crap apart from one track (ie most bands albums) you only have to buy the one track thats actually any good - I have to wonder if thats actually whats really hurting the old-world album sale driven record industry - that albums were often fundamentally a couple of good tracks and alot of polyfilla and now that folks have a choice to buy only the good tracks in electronic format and leave the rest - albums sales are maybe down? If so - time for bands to get better and stop with the polyfilla approach.

Since I've been a grown up (surprisingly longer than a week) I hardly buy any. I'm not into wearing a headset and I've no occasion where I can listen to music other than by the PC and you can get every track you can think of from the net in a few clicks. I bought an MP3 player years ago for about £10 and have hardly ever used it.
