tricycleracer: Who... who is buying physical media?

I am, for one.  Why do I want to pay money for a compromised quality, often limited use format that has absolutely zero resale value?

Also, interesting graph.  I keep getting told by self-appointed experts that piracy actually leads to more music sales.   I guess the facts say otherwise.

tricycleracer: Revenue from digital music last year totaled $5.6 billion, while physical music brought in $9.4 billion.

Who... who is buying physical media?  Are vinylheads buying that many records?

I know a few people that buy a lot of music and only buy CDs. Apparently jewel cases are just the bees knees with their hopelessly flimsy joints.

But they also say they like to show off their music collections. racks and racks of CDs are more impressive than a large iTunes XML.
