Smaller and sturdier than LPs, larger but less prone to damage than cassettes, CDs were the wave of the future.

They ruled, undisputed, for many years till the advent of downloadable digital music.

As of 2015, not only has digital music eroded the dominance of the CD, but vinyl has been making a modest comeback.
