CD's.

I donated my entire Cassette collection to my local Goodwill, and now I'm thinking about finding a home for my Vinyl collection.

All but 8-tracks as I've decided to rebuild my vinyl collection.

CD's mainly and to a lesser extent mp3's & streaming. Got rid of my vinyl, 8 tracks & cassettes years ago.

Exclamation Re: Zeppboy's Format Poll

My priorities when it comes to music formats are two:

1. I want a physical object.
2. I prefer analogue.

My preferences in order are therefore as follows:

1. Vinyl
2. Cassettes
3. 8-Track
4. CDs

I don't currently have any 8-track tapes but I'd love to add some to my music collection, particularly Quadrophonic ones.



I still have all my vinyl LPs to which I'm still slowly adding and a small quantity of cassettes. I had many more cassettes previously but twice I had cases of cassettes stolen from my car.

Many of my cassettes are unlistenable. They don't tend to do well when they spend years in hot attics.

My cassette collection was stored in a cool dry place (basement) and some of my oldest cassettes were also unlistenable.

Cassettes sound pretty good if you have a good player. Unfortunately they don't hold up to time the way vinyl and CD's do.

I have some that are starting to drag and don't sound as good as they once did.

I have a few 8-Tracks unfortunately they aren't quadrophonic. I hear the quadrophonic ones sound really good.

You're correct. I once read somewhere that cassettes naturally degrade with the passage of time.

Re: Zeppboy's Format Poll

Anyway I can

Don't have a cassette player or 8 track so those are out.
We stream with Spotify and sirius radio(most used way these days)
Although at home we still play cd's and vinyl sometimes
otherwise we use spotify and itunes (mp3 )

8-tracks were capable of delivering real quadrophomic very faithfully. Vinyl was not.

True. Any kind of tape does including 8-track.

Have your 8-track tapes held up that well over the years?

Peter Dunn's Vinyl Museum on Lakeshore Boulevard in Toronto was a used record and tape store operating out of what had been a supermarket at one time. It was therefore absolutely massive with an incredible selection of titles. On one wall or aisle there was a sign "8-Tracks - They're Better Than CDs!" And you know Peter wouldn't lie.

All of them, although cassettes and 8 tracks are pretty seldom.

Re: Zeppboy's Format Poll

I still buy CDs. Some stuff I buy on iTunes. I usually listen on my iPod, but some of it is ripped from CD and some of it is downloaded.

My 13 year old loves owning physical copies of her music and has most of the My Chemical Romance catalog on vinyl as well as CD.

99% streaming. Don't own any CDs and haven't used an MP3 in a long time. Have a small vinyl collection but haven't added to it in a couple years.
