I had heard that on a XM music talk show on Monday. I say that I love the CD format, but looking back, I only bought two CDs in 2017 (one was a Christmas gift, Rush' Farewell to Kings reissue).... The ones that I have, I convert to digital and never play the CD again.
CD's are the best quality audio format, but it seems that folks care little for that any more. I have a good system in my car and at home, I can tell the difference, but it's not enough for me to give up the digital convenience.
