CDs started to come out in the mid-80s, I believe. They really became household items in the late 80s to early 90s. I think people pretty much started switching over their record collections pretty early since CDs came out. I think one of the major causes of the record industry's declining sales figure are due to the fact that people would spend a lot to buy all their old records on CDs. So it was essentially buying stuff they already had. So they would go out and they wouldn't buy the latest thing, they would just buy the ones they reissued. So people are spending a lot on CDs to compensate for their record player because the record player is old technology. And so when CDs became real popular in the late 80s, early 90s, the record at first looked like it was long gone, but it's hung around. The initial story is that the sound quality is far superior and it's smaller and it is easier to have a large CD collection. It is easier than having a large records collection, and CDs can be played in cars and are transportable which is obviously very nice. The initial thing is that the sound quality is amazing. I mean digital technology will just blow people's minds away; but in reality, if you have a fine record player or average record player, the sound quality is, if not better, just as good. And CDs don't offer that much more than to hold more music, more information so that that's nice. Some people would be releasing a lot of the double records these days if they didn't have 70+ minutes to put onto a disc, so that's nice. There are some nice advantages, but what I would think it is a myth as far as the sound quality is better sounding on CDs. They are just as good, if not worse. I honestly think that early vinyl records sound fantastic.
