Is This Real? Discogs "CDs Are Making A Comeback"


Recommended Posts

I have no doubt CD sales have risen on account of vinyl MSRP bloating, in addition to the wait times for anything that's not big-label pop.  I don't know if their popularity or desirability will match vinyl, though, unless they find a way to start marketing variants or exclusives, or some other aspect that can be easily flipped.  I feel like I've seen CDs with alternate artwork, or done in limited numbers (and signed), and the interest just isn't quite the same as similar perks for vinyl records.

I'd love to see the average cost / CD overlaid with the rise in sales; people dumping their CD collections for cheap as digital become the go-to *and* with the rise in vinyl popularity <> mean that CDs are making a comeback.  Now, if sale price is flat or rising than maybe the case can be made, but I doubt it - count of CD sales alone is kind of a meaningless statistic.
