Radio-specifically XM. More variety. I-tunes also.

If I didn't listen to the radio when I traveled down around NOLA I could have not heard the Christmas Classic "The Cajun Twelve Days of Christmas. I laughed so hard tears rolled down my face. I might not have the title just right but anyone on here that is Cajun will know the name.

There is another medium you didn't mention - mp3, and it's the only medium I ever use anymore because I can play my music on any computer, on my phone, and even in my car. Vinyl? I don't think I've played that medium in 20 some-odd years. CD? Radio? I really seldom ever use either of those anymore.

You should probably add mp3 music to your boycott list, since it's making other forms of audio media obsolete. Or perhaps you already have, since you left it out of your poll.

Actually, downloads have peaked. The industry kinda shot itself in the foot, quality wise.
They based their entire world on dinky sounding files. Have a Guiness! Brilliant!

There is no comparison. I won't debate it. Analog rules. Ask sound engineers who have a clue...
if you want the truth. Google can help you to learn how cheesey mp3 quality is, but if you are
satisfied with uber poor level of quality that is your choice. My needle cost more than your whole system, i betcha.
Chit you not.

The speaker wires alone on my system cost about as much as a ipod fer Christs sake. They are about as thick as a nickel.
You have run into an audiophile, sorry.

Vinyl production is way up is the fact of the matter for a few years running now!
Vinyl is not back. It never went anywhere... but the value sure did skyrocket.

I just recently sold a rare 45 for 600 and a obscure 78 rpm for almost 400, as an example.
Keep in mind I bought the 45 at retail for 89 cents, years ago... and got the 78 for a buck or so.

What is the resale value of an mp3? Laughing$tock at best?

Having a huge collection of the real deal (records!) sure makes it easy to afford a badass needle, i telluwhut.

Who gives a crap about the resale value of an mp3? Considering I pay 8 cents for every mp3 I purchase, the last thing on my mind is resale value.

I also never said they were the best quality, but they are by far the most versatile media out there and it makes much more sense to invest in them than vinyl. In 2009, vinyl is good for only one thing: frisbee. The fact that you throw your money away on outdated technology makes absolutely no difference to me.
