CDs SOUND BETTER THAN A MP3.
Donít believe me? Find a quiet place, grab a pair of really good headphones and listen to a downloaded version of a song then listen to the CD version. Iím talking over the ear studio-style headphones here, not those in-ear buds. Any person who considers themselves an audiophile should be able to tell the difference immediately.
BUY A CD GET THE MP3s FREE
The reason for this is because you already get a digital copy of the album when you purchase it. You can rip the CD and make your own MP3s for your own use on your iPod or MP3 player.
LINER NOTES, PICTURES, LYRICS, AND MORE.
This is cool if you really like the band and want to know who wrote each song and see exclusive photos and artwork. Plus if you have access to members of the bands you can have them sign your CD booklet. You canít really do that with an iPod or MP3 player.
YOU CAN HOLD IT
There is a greater sense of satisfaction when you can hold a CD and its packaging in your hands after you buy it. There isnít really anything you can see for your money after downloading an album other than the tracks being listed in your media library. You canít hold a bunch of digital coding in your hands.
