I don't think the CD is dead quite yet. With really good headphones (especially amplified properly), I can tell the difference between CDs and MP3s, even when the latter are relatively high-quality. And lossless digital music takes up too much space on today's affordable hard drives to be practical for music nuts like me. As it is, I had to move my iTunes library to an external 160 GB hard disk, and it's almost full! (Admittedly, some of the music on there is my own recorded loops, but more of it is ripped from my CDs or legally downloaded concert bootlegs.)

I'm guessing that what will finally get me to get rid of my CDs and not buy more will be when portable mass (1 TB or more) data storage becomes much cheaper.
