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 ;-)

High rez downloads will be the death of commercial CD's, store or internet bought. There will be no reason for them. The only viable physical media left will be LP's. Amazon and Circuit City both have extensive online LP catalogs now.
As for the Squeezebox, coupled with Rhapsody, it is a great source for music, though still lacking in even CD quality resolution. I still use my SB extensively and sounds pretty good in my system through a high-quality DAC. It is certainly enjoyable and saves me from buying CD's if I don't care for the music. It also hooks up with Pandora, numerous internet radio stations around the world, Live365 and other services. Considering the price, it's a no-brainer.
