  • Do you still use Audio CDs?

    Those little roundish silverish discish thingies to hear music.

    I feel totally retro, but I was still using them quite a lot --- well until yesterday my beloved, age-old Sony CD player decided to go south. It was one of the "changer" thingies for multiple CDs, did a great job for a really looooong time without any prob. Now it's history

    Dunno if I just buy some other CD thingie, seems it's outdated tech since MP3/Youtube/whatever. But I still have all those CDs, and they don't seem to sell those "changers" anymore, just see a lot of single disc players. Could copy/convert them CDs all to MP3 I suppose. Bah.

          I have nowhere to play audio CDs now. For a couple of years I had a car that could play them, now I do not.

          If I was going to get a new media for audio, I would get vinyl. It is unlikely though.

                Similar to Jon, I used to only listen to CDs in the car (although most of the time I just connected my cellphone and played Spotify directly), but now but even that.

                I think music streaming (though I do have a large amount of songs directly downloaded to my phone for connectionless spots) is so much more convenient that it's very unlikely I'm switch to some physical media again.

                    I still have Audio CDs in my possession ... but it has been years since I actually listened to one of those.

                    Some of the songs on CDs I have converted to mp3s, so I can put them on my phone and I also own lots of mp3 files bought from Amazon ...
                    my mp3 collection alone is several days of listening without rrepeating any song ...
                    aside from this I also have Amazon music Premium, so theoretically I could put all my CDs on the Attic

                      I have a CD library and I transferred a bunch of songs to mp3. Learning new tech is a pain but worth it to have tunes golfing

                        I donated all my old CDs years ago. There is a CD player in both my vehicles but I no longer use it.

                          I have never owned an audio CD.

                          I did have tapes, long ago.
