Subject: RE: Tech: Do people still print or buy CDs?
A moment of silence for my Muntz Stereo-Pak 4-track player, (sniffle.)
Amazon-US still ships a crappe tonne of CDrs out of Kentucky every year. Hours on end of reissues and oldies compilations and even some new stuff. But the volume and profits are a fraction of their download & streaming biz.

CD sales are, mostly, a resale, boot sale, thrift shop market these days. New material trends toward the home business & hobbyist.

Most big name brick & mortar stores have long since packed up their DVD, Blu-Ray, 4K &c&c sections as well. Yet also have a spanking new end-cap for over-priced, over-weight, poorly pressed & reissued vinyl LPs... oh well.
