      Yes cassette sales are up though not going to tell you it's because of the sound. I know several companies out there now making cassette tapes. Still people out there with Dragons and other cassette machines.

      I think one take home message is Discogs represents not just "new" sales but also "used" sales of CD/LPs, etc. And that looks pretty robust with 3.2 million records sold in the first half of 2016. That's compared to ~600k CDs. So either the sites is analogcentric or people are just shifting to buying downloads.

      Really? According to Discogs, CD sales are up more than LP, both in absolute numbers and percentage, and cassettes are the "hot" medium. For me, though, I'm really only interested in downloads these day, hoepfully 24/48 at a minimum

      Yes really

      CD sales are up on discogs marketplace only.

      On the Neilson report of total US sales, cd and digital is down.

      I think one has to be careful as to the dates of the survey. This is for the first half of 2016.

      LP: 2.6M-->3.2M sales
      CD: 533K-->682K sales

      So while CD sales are up 5% over LPs, LPs are outselling CDs 5:1. Again for this site. It would be interesting if eBay had similar data available.
