I stream my ripped collection as well as other material on Apple Music but I still order older cds.
Man, I love discs so much, I’m buying and rebuying more than ever!
Yes, still some empty space to fill...

Yep. Bought about 80 new discs so far just since January. And about a dozen used, but they're all in the OOP $40-$120 range, not cheap ones. I'm doing my part.
Dang! I was just perusing amazon for a couple jazz CDs of albums I don't have. Prices have trended back up!
I prefer to have physical media & only use streaming to preview any albums I may be interested in purchasing.
So I still buy Vinyl & CDs.
I do back up the CDs though by ripping on to a Hard Drive
I still buy when I get the itch. More enjoyable than streaming that’s for damn sure!
Yep...CD library Still Growing!
CDs mostly for classical. For rock and classical I buy LPs as main go to.
Yes, I'm sill buying some cds. Completing some things. Basically new and with decent remasters. Although to be honest my purchases in general have decreased considerably regardless of the format
You are right, I frequently check some sites in addition to the usual ones (discogs, amazon, dodax or ebay) and I have noticed that prices have been rising in recent months for some CDs.
I always check to see the ones that interest me and certainly the prices in some are increasing
I think you dropped your laptop.
If the music I am after is not available on 5.1 SACD, I might purchase it on CD and then place it my iTunes Library in ALAC. There seems to be a very, very, slight performance improvement over Apple Music download for rent or purchase.
I buy cds and everything else...all used for .50 to 1.99.
I buy only cd, its cheap, sounds awesome and I dont need internet conection to listen it.
Family who will have to clean up after me when I'm gone are going to appreciate that I have retained only about 10% of my CD collection. Now and then I do have to buy one, usually used, because the album is just not available elsewhere. I went from having 1400 CDs in 4 separate places (and in boxes and informally scattered about) to having them on a couple of shelves in my home office. I'm happier that I thought I'd be with this arrangement. Far, far be it from me to judge other's media preferences.
The beauty of the used market right now is being able to pick up some CD's that I may not have in the past (due to the cost of new CDs and limited funds while raising a family). The other day I picked up a few (Paul Weller, Moody Blues, Little Feat, Morrissey XTC, Roky Erikson Tribute, Elton John) for $1.99 in perfect condition at my favorite record store. Good times!
Nice. I added hundreds of CDs bought at used CD emporia, back when such stores were ubiquitous. Not many for $1.99, though! Was a fun way to spend a day. Out of town, I'd seek out more of the same.
I've basically given up on used, priced too high for desirable albums and so many come in not the best of condition. I still do buy new at times but since I began streaming no where near as often as I used to. Probably 12 to 18 a year now when it used to be at least 5 a month.
I gave up on buying CDs this year and stream 80% of the time in high rez. Actually I gave away and donated at least 400 CDs recently. I really enjoy vinyl and CDs but the convenience and selection of the streaming has made me go this route.
Picked up some Jackson Browne, Primus, and Doobie Brothers recently.
I just bought 40 CDs out of a friend's car. A buck or two each.
There are a lot of good deals on cds, just bought Stevie Ray Vaughn complete recordings box set on Amazon & Derek and the Dominos 40th Annivrsey deluxe layla cd
