But I think of the bad side of this.  We as audio consumers are forever stuck with either data compressed music or vinyl surface noise for our music.  With the CD not being sold by a major retailer, if the trend continues, MPEG, AAC, OPUS, and the like are part of our lives to stay.   Now I am far from the one that buys the oxygen free copper and other trends like that, but the fact the common user cannot but music uncompressed (even if just 16 bit), seems to be a bad thing for audio everywhere.

So much for higher quality.  It was sacrificed for greater distribution.

Who would have ever thought vinyl records would survive in the marketplace after CDs became common media?
Well, Best Buy is about to discintue selling CDs but plan to still sell vinyl records fro another 2 years, at least.
