    i just bought a record player/ 8track from goodwill and going back to my dads record collection ive got to say i really would rater listen to anything on a vinyl record than an mp3. For at least home enjoyment.On the go id have to go with my ipod instead of a walkman.

    so iptf, for listening to music at home which do you prefer?

    Well the vinyl was the start of a revolution so i have to say that it's the greater of the two. But modern media is so amazing that it will last forever now. Mp3s will never bend or scratch like a vinyl.. however, in the same way... Mp3s, or rather, the downloading of which illegally has brought music artists to their knees

    i kind of enjoy the way records sound popping and all fuzzy as long as they dont skip im fine. i also love looking around thrift shops for good deals. last week i got boston rod stewart steve miller aerosmith led zepplien and kiss for like 6 bucks total. A lot of modern artists are starting to put out lps i guess best buy and my local fred meyer and starting to sell them

    all my collection is in mp3 (with an exception of my daft punk cd's) but i'd love to have some vinyl with all the rare remixes/releases etc.

    I haven't listened to anything on vinyl in a few years; there was no room in our new house for our record player, so it just sits in the garage. But my dad has, like, every Beatles record, so I might try and dig it out over the summer.
