CDs are smaller, but I wouldn't call them convenient. So hard to read the printed sleeve, apart from anything else.
This is something that was discussed when the CD first appeared. I worked at selling high end hi-fi in London's west end. None of the CDs publicity seemed to cover quality of sound. Smaller, no background noise, 'indistructable', whatever, but no mention of more musical. They sold for twice the cost of LPs and cost peanuts to mass produce. They were a way for record companies to cash in. Now, the same comnpanies are suffering from their own digital revolution. LOL. There is some kind of justice there....
