Not necessarily. He may prefer the convenience of downloads. He may consider optical discs to be useless legacy clutter. And on and on.
The OP asked about where to buy FLACs and some noise was introduced about saving money by buying cheap CDs and ripping your own. Fair enough, but I was suggesting that maybe money wasn't the OP's top priority, and that like he said, he just wanted to know where to buy FLAC downloads. If he'd wanted to know about cheap CDs or SACDs or DVD-As then he probably would have asked. And if he reads and posts on Computer Audio at head-fi then he is probably aware that he can rip his own if that's what he wants to do. But none of that is what he asked about.
