Chatrooms don't archive posts and don't end up as large repositories of information. Its much harder to build up a sense of community in a chatroom, since theres no way for you to tell what was going on even 3 seconds before yu logged in. YOu have to be online at the same time as the people you are talking to, they have less customization of avatars and so on, and they become largely useless once they breach about a dozen users at a time.

Forums are WAY better than chatrooms.

in my post i said as far as TECHNOLOGY goes. just like technologically speaking, cds are better than vinyl, there is other non technology based reasons they are superior. so thanks i guess, for giving my point more validity.

Um, I think chatrooms are a bit 90's meself. And they're also very different forms of communication. Forums are much more organized and efficient. Edit: Or what Guitarbizarre said...

Also, I don't see how technologically chat rooms are more advanced. If you mean the programming is more up to date I wouldn't agree. Programmers are constantly updating the forum software.

Sound quality aswell obviously, when I d/l I try and get as close as possible to 320kbps as I can ever since I started noticing the blatant crappiness of standard 128kbps mp3s (like actually crackling on the lower frequencies)

i've rambled loads about how morally bankrupt kids are today if they dont have loads of hard copy music, and it's definitely all true
Well, I definitely am morally (and financially) bankrupt, but if I had the money, I still wouldn't pay for CDs anymore. Main reason is because I listen to music on the computer or on my iphone. I still have about 100 CDs from the pre-mp3 days but I haven't played one in years. They're just collecting dust...:\

And nowadays you can still pay money for crap albums in mp3 format if that's your thing, only you wouldn't have the plastic lying around, you could just delete them. See, mp3s are even environment friendly.....

We hear in analogue, it's theoretically of higher quality because it has infinite variation, at any point you can measure it to any arbitrary level of accuracy.

Digital is inherently less accurate because it is an approximation of the analogue sound. They sample the music at a certain rate, and at every point of measurement replicate it to the closest level accuracy.

The smooth wave is analogue, the columns are digital.



But with high quality digital sound people can't really tell the difference.

In what way? Are we talking about supporting the artists or getting the best quality of the sound, because you can do both with legal digital downloads.

Try listening to Public Image ltd.- Metal Box on vinyl, then have a listen to the remastered cd or mp3's and come back and say that the vinyl doesn't sound 100% better

Supporting the artists, but for the most part that was just a joke. I do my fair share of downloading but I also like to have hard copies of my music.
