can it long before cd's are gone completely?
It can be long before CD's are gone completely - just as Vinyl has not completely gone...
I think of it like this
CD = Physical
Physical = Collectable
Collectable = potentially valuable
Some of my CD's / SACD's are now very valuable.
For those that doubt this - this this exercise.
Go to Amazon.com
Check out the price of the following CD's.
Thriller, Michael Jackson. SACD New = US$350 Used = $100
Avalon, Roxy Music. SACD New = US$500 Used = $100
UP, Peter Gabriel. SACD New = US$150 Used = $100
La Luna, Sarah Brightman. SACD New = US$650 Used = $335
Golden Years, David Bowie CD 24k collection = US$1000+
What are downloads worth? Nothing right?
