    Depressing. I haven’t been to HK for 20 years and have no immediate plans to return but the Far East has been helping maintain the market for Physical Media for Classical. I’ve also heard that the Japanese market is shrinking

    Sad. More and more physical record shops are closing down. I suppose HMV is still hanging in there perhaps because it is selling enough Beats headphones and BB-8 droids. But then nowadays one can even get CDs of classical composers like Du Mingxin, Ge Gan-ru or Gordon Chin from international online shops, and often cheaper when buying abroad, the need for local record shops is quickly diminishing.
