it's like asking: do you still need to buy records and record player?

well stampered records are so expensive nowadays. so i continue to buy cds, this, regardless of being remastered. better records store, a self acclaimed genius of hot stampers, prefers cds than lousy pressed and 180-200g lps.

the beatles corp. continue to produce cds (and lps) of unreleased tracks. and so are the other artists.

dont worry, cdps and cds are just fine. they'll stay for a long time. even in this year of 2017.

I have a Marantz NA6005, a DAC which is connected to a Laptop but still i bought a CD Player a month ago. Why? Sarap pa din mag play ng CD's. Isa pa, sa dami kong collection ng music sa NAS it's really hard to choose which to play sa Marantz or sa PC na naka connect sa DAC.

With the CD player, i bought my fav albums. Put it in and play. So simple and easy.

That's right. Mas gusto ko pa rin ang dedicated CD Player.

Thanks all.
Now that its seems obvious I may need a physical media player: The obvious question next question:

CD PLAYER or TURN TABLE?

Is it still CD Player?


Get Both!
But use the turntable always...mas healthy yun..
ganito gawin mo... pag nag play ka ng plaka, mag jumping rope ka...at wag ka titigil hanggang di natatapos mga songs sa side A... pag naubos na kanta..stop ka..lapit ka..flip mo sa side B..tas jumping rope ka uli..
caution: baka matuluan ng pawis ang plaka

isa pang caution:
wag ka gagamit ng IPOD classic pag nag play at jumping rope ka....nakamamatay!!!
ma heart attack ka  :)

pahabol pala..concern ako sa health mo eh..

pag tapos na side A..wag pala "stop"...dapat habang papalapit ka..medyo patalon talon ka ng konti, tas hawak ka sa plaka pero ingatan mo malagyan ng fingerprints..mahirap maglinis ng plaka... konting praktis lang...ma master mo din yan...
pag nakita ka ng anak mo...sasabihan ka nun ng "PETMALU LODI....WERPA", pag nakita ka naman ng kapitbahay mo at pinagkalat na me "toyo" ka...wag mo pansinin...isipin mo na lang...mas healthy ka sa kanya..bka sya next month..dedo na...ikaw alive pa rin...happy pa!  pag ginawa mo yan everyday...you can eat bagnet...pramis..oks lang yun..he he  PEACE!

by this time it does not.....familiarize yourself with deezer, spotify, etc. they offer sound at par or better with CDs.

LPs sound different but not necessarily better (a lot will react)...although very soon, digital will definitely sound better already.


convenience and love for music will drive that digital tendency to prevail.  on the other end, your lust for SQ will always justify you to spend more on LPs, cartridges, etc....which at the moment, will subjectively claim to sound better than hi-res digital tracks....peace :)
