MP3 is nice, but nothing beats the classicness of the Tape player!
Well that and the CD player!
WOO!!!! CD PLAYER-ness!!!!

Don't have a Mp3 player, I go with the CD player/walkman.

I don't have an MP3, so CD player

I'd love an MP3 player, but I don't have one. o_o;

Actually, until this year, I didn't have a discman either, so that sucked. ^_^;;

CD player playing CDs full of burnt MP3s. *wins*

I have a CD player, but an MP3 player would be nice. It'd save me the rouble of burning and buying. (Don't yell at me, it's legal in Canada)

I own both....
Their both good in their own way, MP3's are good for when your walking around, you can just put it in your pocket. CD players are good 'cause well, their original.
i rip music into my computer to put into my MP3 but not all the songs can get ripped into my player so there's a down side to MP3's, the amount of space in your MP3 is limited so you must have alot of space to fit all your favourite songs.
I picked CD players as well i love it so much, i think the sound is better playing from it (even though you don't lose quality putting songs into the MP3) and mainly 'cause it's original...
though the most useful player to me would be the MD players (Mini disc players) as their small and can hold alot of songs.

I have both! The player that I have allows me to play both CDs and MP3s, but I honestly don't even know what MP3s are, lol. I only have one disc, and it was sent to me by my friend in Japan. ^_^; It plays nicely, but I still actually prefer regular CDs. Once I learn how to get MP3s or whatever then I may start liking them more, but for now... Nope.

MP3 all the way! lol

*stalking Kayliegh mwahaha!*

Ability to choose what you’re listening to, and see information at a glance? No skipping, and portability of a ridiculous amount of music?

MP3 players change lives. I know mine changed my life~

I have both, but I never actually used my MP3 player yet. And I got it last Christmas. ^^; Whoops. But I love my cd player, even though it's on it's deathbed now. I dropped it (aka I'm a klutz and I got it tangled up with the desk and it went smashing into the ground) at some restaurant in Disney over the summer and it snapped in two... but I got it somewhat back together and it still works perfectly. Maybe if I ever get around to using it I'll like my MP3 player more...

Well I think one should realize that most cannot afford a mp3 player while a CD player is dirt cheap nowadays, hence a mp3 player's popularity isn't nearly high as the CD or tape player =\. Otherwise, mp3 players would most definitely replace any portable music device.
Plus with my music collection quickly approaching 100 GB (I use ogg q7, and mp3 vbr formats.. and maybe in the future I might change to FLAC), organizing my music is ten times easier through a computer than a book full of cds, I learned that first hand :p.

Oh I use mp3 players, an iRiver H140 to be exact. Just the thought of carrying 40 GB of music at any one time makes me glad I bought a mp3 player.

mp3 Players pwn CD players. mp3 files are cheaper, contain more information and some websites say the sound quality is better. My iPod ROCKS! (If it isn't broken or on charge XD) *ticks the mp3 box*

MP3 players are better then cd players so much more convient to just add and remove tracks. In the past I've had several CD players, I tried to open them up and "fix" it if them wasn't working properly (due to repeated floor incidents), but of course that didn't work out too well.

But now if I have a MP3 player, I proberly won't have to worry about "fixing" it XD.

CD player...I <3 my CD's. ;D

I have a CD player. I may get a mp3 for christmas.

December 15th, 2004, 4:22 PM
I’ve dropped my iPod on pavement, tile, etc. etc., and not broken it once. XD Bless my little 3rd gen 10 gig player, it keeps going and going. iTunes is a bit clumsy for organizing it, but it works for the most part.

I don't get Ipods,who needs 10,000 songs lol,I don't even think i know of that many lol,but i might buy one just cause.

The bad thing though about MP3's is that you need a comp. and when you're in the car and wanna listen to a CD,and MP3 isn't gonna help lol,that's why i'll have both.

December 15th, 2004, 4:35 PM
A lot of cars nowadays support certain MP3s players natively. And others have kits, and such. XP

And you don’t need 10,000 all at once, but it’s the fact that you have your entire library at your disposal at all time. No needing to pack all your CDs, or change them out. You have all the music you own right there, for whenever the mood strikes you.

You might not bother pulling out an old CD to listen to some tunes you haven't heard in a while, but when it's as simple as a click of a button, well you just may.

December 15th, 2004, 9:25 PM
I have both~ =3 I even have a MD player that I never use. o.O; But I like CD players better. (Though I never use mine anymore... >.>; )

December 15th, 2004, 9:59 PM
I only have a CD player. /= Which I still love!! But a mp3 player that can carry hundreds of songs would probably suit me better.

December 16th, 2004, 6:49 AM
I still prefer CD players as in order to get songs onto your MP3's iPods or what ever you still need the CD to be ripped onto your computer.
iPods are useful but still a bit big....

December 16th, 2004, 6:53 AM
i have a cd player, you could say that my families too poor to get a mini i pod XD or just lazy, well there's nothing wrong with cd players, they're cool, and we've been useing them for a long while now, i just gotta adjust to the new milanium XD jk

December 16th, 2004, 10:29 PM
CD Player! I don't know what an MP3 player is...:P

Although my mouse slipped and I picked MP3 player by mistake...

A CD player. I dont know what you can do with a MP3.

December 18th, 2004, 2:18 PM
I have a CD player, though I may get an MP3 player also.

December 19th, 2004, 9:48 AM
I have 3G , 15G iPod , and i am really happy with it although ill get a new mp3 next year. so mp3 for me since ive never had a cd player lol.

I also have Sony Net MD , i dont like them as much as my mp3 , i have to buy the mini disks insert them on the player and change if i dont want to hear that , i also have to buy alkalines so nope.

iPods sound is better by far , imo well i download 320kbps songs and i bought Grado's 60 headphones , just they havent arrived , they can compare to Sennheiser's $500 usd and win , just for $70.
