It was a double edged sword wasn't it. There was no better feeling than taking a chance on a Disc and then getting home to discover that it was a killer. Very much like a drug related rush. As you mentioned though the flip side of that was ending up with a turkey. I'm sure we've all been there. CD's have never been cheap and i've felt my share of buyers remorse. The worst thing was the fact that once opened, you couldn't return them. Luckily we knew of a few little independent niche stores that allowed you to have a listen first, but with the larger chains who put on their own packaging,...forget it.
so you can load a CD while driving??
I have never had Bluetooth cut out in the car. In my house Sonos operates over WiFi. Connection is instant and permanent. Not Bluetooth.
Ads? Only if you are on a free platform
low quality? Spotify sounds incredible through my Sonos. Much better than CD and trust me I still have decent hifi gear - Denon, Arcam etc.
Not sure what u are on about mate
