    Doing a little personal research...... How do you prefer to listen to music?

  2. vinyl vinyl vinyl!! used, new, unopened shrinkwrap or from the dusty bin under a table at a yard sale! There's something about physically changing albums on a record player that makes the songs sink in a little more for me, a nostalgic feeling of changing tape sides as a kid maybe? Whether the quality is better, worse, or if one side is scratched and continuously skips... I just love vinyl!

    Both, really.
    I would say that for the majority, I buy albums digitally to download to my phone to carry around everywhere. I'll buy the vinyl if I really like said albums.
    Some albums I will buy vinyl first and hope they come with digital downloads.

    What Im trying to figure out if its musicians that prefer physical product over, say, the general non-musician listening public. In comparison to another poll I did awhile back on a mostly listener messageboard -- thus far with only a few votes, it appears so......but I was hoping to get more responses

    Vinyl in good shape, played on a quality rack stereo system. CDs if the sound is not compressed to death.

    The absolute best recorded sound I've ever heard, however, was on my cousin's reel-to-reel system back in the late '70s-early '80s.
