hmm im not so sure, i think what killed CD shops in that they largely only stocked the sort of crap that was in the charts, and all those actually buying and demandnig a real CD's had little option but to buy online.  high street CD prices were stupidly expensive in the UK so it took little prodding to make buyers of chart rubbish move on line too.  high prices and very very limited choice, that is what i think really killed them off.  hell i regularly used to pay about £15 for a CD in the UK!!!

Around here, the big boxes killed the cd shop. Stores like Best Buy treated big releases as loss leaders. No way for the little guy to compete. This was fifteen years ago.

And now Best Buy shrank their offerings to a fraction of the rows they used to.  Now Amazon or other online sellers are the only way to get a decent selection of CDs.  Of course Amazon always manages to break the jewel cases during shipment...  I still only buy my music via CDs to get the quality so that's the added cost to doing it that way.

I buy CD's all the time.  I refuse to steal music from the web...it's low-down....sorry

I often buy CD's, I just don't often buy NEW CD's.

Yes, the people downloading and not paying the artists royalties are what kills musicians livelyhoods.  Very low not to support the artists you listen to.

I buy a few CDs almost  every week. Almost never rip them. I have CDPs that spin them silver circles. I do have a lot of stuff in digital format, but I try to get stuff that I can't get in CD or LP in digital form.

it's been more or less statistically shown that the ppl who pirate music are those who also buy the most records..

I buy somewhere around 10 or 20 a month. I always torrent them first though to make sure they're good enough to spend money on.
