With the popularity of Spotify and iTunes Music on the rise, it's no wonder less and less people are buying physical copies of music. Audiophiles know the sound quality difference, but most don't know the importance.
It's not really about the sound quality though as much as the fact that online streaming could completely wipe out the need for producing physical copies of music. This could be dangerous due to artists not receiving their proper due monetarily when others listen to their music online. Buying music in stores is now becoming a thing of the past sadly.
