I buy many of my CDs from a local second hand reseller. I miss the days where part of the buying experience was browsing through the album art. I bought my share of albums based on art I absolutely loved.

I'm going to have to spend more time checking out ebay.

Edit: the art on CDs is just not big enough to have the same impact as album art. Sigh...

Yeah, I guess that's why I ended up with all the Frank Zappa albums.

Almost all of my music is bought through Amazon and that is for CDs. Generally I don't do downloads and prefer to rip the CDs to my computer.

Back in the day, Best Buy used to have a decent music selection. I enjoyed the selection better at Borders, but the exorbitant pricing sucked. But, things have changed for both places.

I forgot to mention that I also like to buy directly from the bands' websites if they offer any compelling exclusives or are priced competitively. I like to pretend they get a higher cut if I buy directly from them, but I have no idea how often that's actually true.

Most of cd and dvd purchases are through Amazon. Periodically I'll purchase from Burning Shed in England for special edition sets (Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson, Gavin Harrison etc.).

Most of the CD's I buy now days are from...eeek. walmart.. or similar. My music tastes are more mainstream than not but the selection in stores these days is lacking no doubt about it. I used to have some great music stores nearby that sold used cd's and had a excellent selection that I also utilized.

If it is something which I only want one or two tracks I'll just get it off amazon downloads. Amazon does not feel the need to tell me how I should use my product the way apple does and it is also so much easier than itunes, which quite frankly is probably the worst and most frustrating program I have ever used... Much like everything else apple creates.

Recently I acquired a USB DAC capable of all types of High Res formats including DSD so I may start to change my music purchasing habits if the small high res niche takes off. Not much for music selection I am interested in at the moment. Prices are also an issue with the average high res download at $25+ per album.

I do also still much prefer to buy an actual hard copy of something rather than just a download. I feel pretty cheated paying the same amount for a downloaded album as the actual disc.

Never buy CDs from Walmart. They support censorship of music, and many of the albums there contain the "radio" versions of songs, where as you'd get the actual album version if you bought it anywhere else.

I believe it is a an expression of positive agreement in Spanish.
more phonetically spelled, Indeed-o

Kind of like SNG in Spanish, "Engago!"
