There is a fourth medium. Cassettes. My order would be 1. cassettes, 2. vinyl, 3. CDs, 4. online

And it has nothing to do with quality or convenience. It is a strictly autobiographical order. My heart jumps listening to old cassettes, I feel really good listening to LPs (even newly bought), CDs to me are just background noise (and I do own a couple of hundreds!) and I listen to Online music only if and when I have no other option. E.g. when working thru the 1001 Albums I am supposed to have listened to before death. (And this is the toughest task I ever committed myself to.)

I only buy CDs and never buy songs/albums online. I still have cassettes as well which I sometimes listen to. My record player is broken so I can't use it these days but I also have vinyls (both pop/rock and classical), I listened to them a lot in the past.

This has been a nice thread, chaps.

i've had to up my budget-per-CD to get some big favourites in my collection: Musik von Harmonia & Iva Bittová's Dance of the Vampires both got me spending into double-figures for the first time with €12 & 10 (including postage) respectively.

Worth it Mr. Green


Yesterday I blasted my recently-bought CD versions of Chemical Brothers' Dig Your Own Hole & Underworld's 2ndtoughest on the Discman with my Shure SH940 closed-headphones while doing the big weekly shop at the local massive supermarket. Now that was an epic listening experience! Big hi-fi sound and the Discman didn't skip a beat.

Great albums deserve their own little physical space in our world, as strange as that may sound.
