I prefer; always have & always will; having the actual CD over some digital DL copy which can easily become corrupt or accidentally deleted, or lost due to viruses, or HD failure, corruption, etc. Cal me old fashopn, but I prfer a hard copy of ALL my music & movies in the uncompressed original format w/the oroginal cases, & associated artwork, & lyrics-(for the CD's). & unlike many digital DL's, I am am album guy, not a 'singles' guy! Some bands I may only like certain songs here & there, but all of my fawe bands, of which there are MANY, I Prefer to listen to the WHOLE album(s). & if there's a rarirty where rhere's only one or 2 songs on the album I don't care for, that is what the 'Skip' button's for! BTW, I never cared for vinyl even in it's heyday, I bought tapes growing up in the '80's, & then graduated to the superior CD format. I used to live in CT., & there was the most excellent record store about 30-40v mins from me, that specialized in hard to find stuff, esp. Hard Rock & Heavy Metal, & I'd drive there just for the ability to ask for any obscure underground Metal band & not get a blank stare & then the Who? I've never ever heard of them response. Saldy, I now live in North central NJ, & not much around here. One day, I may ptrhaps take the drive up to Princeton REcord Exchange as that place is just MASSIVE! & they carry everything new & old, used & unopened, popular & hard to find. There's a place much closer to me, but the manager's attitude turned me off from ever going there again sadly. To bad too, as it's like 5-10 mins from me too!
I now mostly buy my CD's online from Amazon, or Movie Mars.
