Not that is really matters, but just curious. Where would you legally download a digital copy of their upcoming album? Historically they've been CD/Vinyl only.

You're not a very good IT guy if you can't research on how to convert a CD to lossless format file. Not only that, if you are older. Your hearing can't hear any difference for music above with a FQ response of 20k hz.

It is more than likely you are referring to pirated mp3s that have very low bit rate than high quality rips.

I'm not surprised older IT guys like you prefer CD and DVDs while most of us IT consultants that do the real high level IT work would not care one bit about CD or DVD if you understand the technology.

Download is a different topic. Tool doesn't license much of anything aside from a few demo tracks for download. Buy in digital format, just about anywhere. Amazon probably because that's where I buy most things.

My 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has one, in addition to USB ports where I can plug in a flash drive if need be.

Well, the quality of MP3s is about the same as an 8-track, so you should be happy.

You know that some are not happy with the quality of CDs either. What do we do? Put a turntable in the dash? 99% of consumers don't have a problem with MP3.

You seem to have a problem with those that prefer CD over MP3....enough so to post your snide comments on here. If you don't like CD's, why do you even post? Nothing in the OP requested opinions.

As for your 99%? We all know from where you pulled that.
