Boomers like CDs

CREATURES OF HABIT: In our rapidly changing world, it is perhaps odd to suppose that a physical medium would still resonate with people, WSJ Marketwatch reporter David Wilkerson points out. But according to Crupnick, there are still plenty of Baby Boomers and other listeners who like to play CDs in the car, and there remains a core contingent of consumers who find CDs to be the best way to enjoy the album format. Interestingly, one of the most logical arguments for the CD—its superior, uncompressed sound quality compared to the 256 kilobyte-per-second or 320 kbps download—plays “a very minor role” in its popularity. “It doesn’t generally show up on the radar screen as an issue,” Crupnick said.
