Are you serious? That's both incredibly odd and incredibly awesome.

First I download anything I like (hey, it's legal here, shush!) or think I might like (for example an album of an artist of whom I just heard a track).

 

Then, if I really do like it, I buy the CD. Much easier than going to a CD store and sampling CDs with their crappy headphones etc.

 

There's no actual reason to buy the CD other than that I like to buy them (to support the artist and of course to get a super accurate rip).

 

I voted 2-4 weeks.

Oh yeah, I am not kidding. When you tear open the plastic cover, you will smell the cotton candy on the packaging for a few days. I noticed it right away, but I did not comment until another member pointed it out for me.

This morning at a garage sale I bought 5 CDs of techno and electronica for 50 cents each. Two of them were double disc sets, and all of them were scratch-free.

I bought Linkin Park's A Thousand Suns today.

Bought Iron Maiden - The Final Frontier today after blindly buying the last two ones on pre-order. Anyways I seldom buy records the first month as the price gets reduced after a while, pre-listening is great when there's hardly any record stores left.

 

I remember when Eno & Byrne released their latest record, that's the way to do it: http://www.davidbyrne.com/music/cds/everything_that_happens/index.php

I get (on average) 2+ used albums per month from eBay and other various second hand cd stores.

Prices of new CDs in Australia is grossly inflated, hence I purchase them from all over the world and tend to stick with used copies.

 

I'm one of the few teenagers I know at my school who still buys CDs. I greatly appreciate my fathers old record collection and would hate to pass on a external hard drive to my children as a representation of my music collection.

Plus the booklets are fun.

6 CD's today, "111 Years Of Deutsche Grammophon" and more than 6 hours of music in one compilation. Plus Jay Z's début album...

 

Hero Kid, the booklets are indeed fun...

I finally picked up Telegram by Bjork. I'm back in the 1 Cd/week category. Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.

I bought the soundtrack of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker last week.

 

My source is a cd player hence...

I bought 3 CDs at a concert last night.

 

I had the pleasure of being the first person to submit track information to FreeDB for two of them.

The last CD I bought wasn't for me, does that count? It was the new Stone Sour CD for my brother's birthday.

 

The last CD I bought for myself was less than a week ago, it was Daniel Lioneye - Vol II. I buy tons of used CDs off amazon and ebay. It's become an addiction. If I don't have at least 1 CD in transit to me, something feels wrong.

 

I used to pirate music, I have Fido2 to thank for making my wallet that much emptier.

Couple of weeks ago, ripped to FLAC, CD stored in big box in dark corner... tongue.gif

I buy CDs whenever I can afford to, and the only download I have ever paid for is the Head-Fi/HD Tracks collaboration Open Your Ears album, which comes as lossless.

I haven't bought a cd since I got my iPod.  And that was several years ago.
