I collect vinyl simply for the wonderful artwork. I don't really believe in the whole "Vinyl sounds warmer than CDs" argument. If you want flawless sound, download in FLAC.

I used to be an avid collector of both vinyl and cds and I've got an entire bedroom devoted to storing my albums. When I moved into a small condo, a year and a half ago, I stopped buying vinyl and cds both. I've run out of storage space. I'm slowly selling off my music collection on half.com.

I'm only purchasing digital music these days. I have a great wireless speaker system connected to my computer and a good digital software to organize and maintain my files. MP3 albums may not have any resale value but I belong to a music service where I can legally purchase drm-free MP3 albums at prices between 50 cents and $2.

I just bought my first vinyl album in over 20 years. I was at a store looking for an album (CD - from the 70's) and they were out and told me it was out of print. I stopped at another store and found it on vinyl. Sure enough when I got home I found that I could have bought the CD on Amazon. On top of that my turntable choose that moment to develope a speed control issue. (it has happened before - I have to open it up and spray a contact cleaner on some of the innerds)
The best thing about vinyl is that it is 10 times easier (than a CD) to get the wrapper off it.

I've wanted to start collecting vinyls, but due to the exclusivity (not every band can afford or bothers to put vinyls of their records out) I've stuck to digital download and CDs.

Im a sucker (literally) for colored vinyl. Just picked up Husker Du Candy apple grey on grey vinyl. I love vinyl but having 2 cats its almost impossible for it to be clean when I try to play it so its not about sound quality really. Although on a good system I think it is superior to CD. I still buy most stuff on CD and only "special" stuff on vinyl.

When that album goes missing, I wasn't the one who stole it

I love vinyl, but don't listen to it exclusively. I guess you could count me amongst the people who only buy it if it's an artist I feel the need to have a complete collection of, or if it's something I don't think I'd find again easily. Luckily I have awesome friends who are great at gift giving too.

I collected vinyl for over 40 years, as a DJ in clubs, and on radio mainly. My library got to over 40,000 singles and over 10,000 albums, plus 7,000 CDs, but I sold almost everything last year as I have got all I need digitally now, which is easier to keep track of, catalogue, find stuff, and my wife doesn't have to lift when we move house! I know I have lost the beauty of those labels and the sleeves, but its the music that matters. People will always collect recordings of all types, but its very much a niche market now.
