Are CD players goig the way of the 8 track,and the cassette?


Streaming seems to be gradually pushing the CD player into extinction.My CD's are in the closet,and may never return!

For the umpteenth time, CDs are going nowhere, unless you settle for iffy sound quality. With CD, I always get great sound quality. When I’ve had the chance to listen to streaming or NAS stored music, it’s been hit and miss enough for me to just see it as an expensive way to listen to radio, which is free. 😄

I am wondering how long CD's will be around as well. Our current 3 cars had no CD players from the factory. I asked the dealer to add a CD changer to our 2018 Cadillac. Btw, I do still have and regularly play 8 tracks on the Sony compact system I had in college. Surprisingly, cartridges are easy to find just like vintage vinyl.
CD's seem to be as available as ever, just not at your local store...and will be for quite some time...
I miss my 8 track in the glove compartment of my '67 Camaro convertible...
Think I would miss the 67 Camaro convertible a teensy bit more than the 8 track in the glove box.........
But to join reality.

I started a thread a while back that the main gist of it was of my local WalMart having stopped selling CD,s period.
Nobody seemed to concerned at that time either.

Pretty funny though as that same Walmart now stocks a fair selection of vinyl.......
