Goodbye CD's


Seems that Borders by me is unloading all their cd's..They claim they are just not selling...Im sure this is just the beginning of the end in the retail stores for cd's...can it long before cd's are gone completely? Many Ive spoken with including some dealers have mentioned this and said "the writing is on the wall" for cd playback..

I have been on the fence about going to a file data system for music, and have been eyeing a Squeezebox duet and setting up my hard drive to take the plunge..maybe now its that time??

Or..maybe just Im just a geezer in my heart of hearts and should just look for old and new Vinyl to keep me going...hmmm..I could be very happy with a mainly vinyl set up ;-)

It can be long before CD's are gone completely - just as Vinyl has not completely gone...
Yes Tboooe!

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?
