As some of you will know i love both formats and i dont stream etc. I have noticed of late that i can spend a few weeks just listening to music on Cd and then a few weeks only listening to music on LPs.
It seems to me that when i am feeling tired or low i seem to spend my time with Cds, but when i feel good and well i seem to listen to to LPs. When i have had too much wine, its Cds, when sober its Lps.
My choice appears to mood related. How about you? FishoutofwaterApr 2, Location: Belgium. Album at the moment I find that clean vinyl, used with the right carts, can sound very addictive!

The format is secondary to the music itself. GuthApr 2, If it's an artist I like, I probably buy both formats, in some cases even several copies. For everybody else it's either CD or LP depending on the price, I've found cases when even the LP was less expensive than the CD, so why bother with the digital format.
