They've been saying this for a while. CD sales for toss-away pop music are way down compared to downloaded. Talking about the latest, greatest marketed entertainer, e.g. like the last 5 Super Bowl half time bands who were not the Rolling Stones. But people who listen to music for more than just background noise like having physical mediums and liner notes. Even Crash I bet would say the worst CD sounds better than a good MP3 and that isn't exactly the highest bar to jump. It certainly goes LP->CD->MP3 in my order of medium preference when buying a new record and I'm not anti-CD-ite by any stretch.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
