CD Player? You mean those high-tech round silver disc thingies? Nah, I stick to my Sony Walkman Radio / cassette player.

New Kids on the Block never sounded so good!

how about one of those 200-CD changers?

I got a cd player with usb/aux connectors for the car about 5 years ago. I have yet to use the cd player. In fact, my CD collection has been gathering dust for a little longer than that. I know it's in my bedroom closet somewhere, but I'm not sure exactly where it is.

No. My car came with a 10 CD changer (in the trunk) that I have never used, not even to test. I don't even use my DVD player any more.

The DVD drive in the PC on my TV (and the ones in other computers) do get used, when I watch a DVD or rip a DVD or CD.

Was cleaning out some stuff in the basement last week and found a bunch of Depeche Mode and Yanni CDs that never got ripped. Maybe I'll do that now.

I still buy and use CDs on a regular basis. But I use my cassette player on a daily basis. My car doesn't have an aux input so I use a cassette adapter to listen to music on my phone or mp3 player.

Only as a cup holder on the computer.

In the car only because it was going to cost me 260 bucks to have an aux line installed to my car's audio system so I could plug in my ipod

Ok...We still have a boom box with a CD player and we use it to play CD's all the time. We even have two...one in the bedroom and one in the kitchen. We buy CD's, too. Just bought two on a recent trip to the Philippines that were from a world reknown violinist who happened to grace our hosts home with a surprise visit. I also have some timeless kids CD's that I use in the car with grandkids and a couple of fun CD's for just driving around in the sunshine and being 60's-70's. I could download them to my phone or laptop but they are easy to use, so I haven't bothered. Am I the only one who still uses these outside the car? Ohhhhh.

I never use the CD player any more. In my car, between my iPod, XM radio, and regular radio, I always have something to listen to. At home, it is all about the iTunes and playlists.

What is a CD player? Between my iPod, phone and pandora I have no need for CDs, I definitely recommend using Google music, it stores all of your music and lets you access it from any computer or your phone, it's amazing!

My car has an AUX port but I still buy and keep CDs on hand for the times the battery in the Zune dies, or if we forget to bring it with us. Or if it's a really short trip.

If I have to borrow my mom's car, it's CDs or nothing-- no tape deck, no AUX.

CDs are great, cheaper than an mp3 album in most cases. Just rip and then I don't have to worry about itunes or DRM, and always have a backup in case the digital copy gets lost.

Yep. Every year I put together a DVD of our annual Disney meet for everyone who attended and I add music to it. I spend weeks scouring the internet for different Disney covers (Mosh Pit on Disney is pretty fun) and sometimes they aren't available for download, only on CD (I've found many Japanese imports on eBay that you can't get stateside).

I copy them to another disk, save the originals and listen to the copies in the car.

I will in my car until unti lI get a stereo with a USB port in it. My current one has an Aux port but sometimes it is just easier to burn an MP3 disc and leave it in my car.

Yep. It took me so long to amass my CD collection, I don't have the energy to convert it all to digital. Plus, you can get used CDs in great shape for $5 or less as opposed to full price for download. Works for me, but probably not for those 10 years younger.

vote-for2vote-against

Yes. Not certain why not.

I only use the tape player on my car so that I can run my phone/MP3 through the stereo.

I listen to CDs each night as I fall asleep. When my CD changer conked out on me a few weeks ago, I thought I'd lose my mind...so I bought another one. Some habits aren't worth breaking!

vote-for2vote-against

Absolutely. I have a $25k two channel stereo and CDs are a main part of my collection. MP3s are so poor in audio quality that I can't bear to listen to them. My disc spinner reads FLAC and WAV files on DVD up to 192kz/24bit and they sound so amazing they give vinyl a run for its money for sound quality. I prefer them over vinyl simply due to their ease of use. For those of you not familiar with that type of file, an album at that bit rate and sample rate can be 4GB. A cd would be around 700MB. MP3 varies wildly, as you all know, based on sample rate but probably is around 100MB.

Since I can't afford (or even find) my entire collection in Hi-Res downloads, CD is the next best thing. I prefer the sound of vinyl but it is always a pain to use and is very cost prohibitive as well.

Until Hi-Res downloads are way more available, and hopefully cheaper, CD is the way to go for this audiophile.

During the CD player phase, I had a radio/tape player handheld.

Then I jumped to the iPod. Missed the CD player craze.

I actually use my casette player more than my CD player. My car only had a cassette player and I use it for one of those audio jack tapes that allow me to put my MP3 player over the speakers. Funny how we've come full circle... next we'll have a record player that will somehow stream from Pandora.
