Whenever I buy a CD album I always listen to the CD on my CD player first before I rip it into both I-Tunes and FLAC.
I find I always want to hear the CD played in it's native format before I change my listening back to a Mac or a streamer as my source.
I probably listen to 95% of my music via USB or my streamer.
But whenever I really want to listen properly to a favourite album, I will hunt down the CD and put in into a CD player.
To be frank, I think in most cases the CD sounds better than FLAC or Apple lossy.
I feel like I'm neglecting my best hi fi friend for an easy life on the sofa ... just button pressing and aimless scrolling using control apps / tablets / smart phone.
Anyone else think like me; or have a lot of folks consigned their CDs and CD players to a life of dust collection?
