Are CD prices too high? Does pricing constrict the amount of music you purchase and listen to? After reading the responses to last week's question, it seems appropriate to ask if you would buy more regular CDs if the price dropped substantially---let's say to around $8 US per disc at retail.

What happened to the idea that when CDs became popular the price would drop?

I would buy more new CDs nd less used disks, unless used disks got that much cheaper as well.

the fact is that i have only a certian amount to spend on cds. lower prices equal more discs.

Used record stores sell them for $8 or less already.

Absolutely....price matters...I belong to both BMG and COLUMBIA cd clubs...when they have some super sales like $2.99,$1.99,$.99 Bargain Bin sales....I scoop em' up...as in LP's that are available at bargain prices...scoop em' up...you wind up finding music that ya' didn't have a inkling to....this low price allows for you to find some real winners in both sound and music quality......the lower the price the more I buy....what a simple law of economics...regards CE

As of now, I usually wait to find albums used. If they were $8 I would probably increase my new buying by 10x.
