Is there any point in owning CDs or vinyl

The moral of the story is not to listen whilst drinking as it appears you slot the albums in the wrong place afterwards.   The answer is to have a motion camera up showing when you remove and replace an LP .. :) 

Or leave the next album pulled out slightly so you can see where to return to.  It works, especially if you have just rolled a joint on one. :hash:

PS. I no longer roll joints.  Honest.

PPS.  My butler does it for me.

Aye I do that .. but seeing as some love the technical overload I thought the camera idea would be a wheeze

I get fed up with holding the magnifying glass :D 

LPs are another matter.

Get more powerful reading glasses for the CD sleeves (works for me) :)

Regardless of any real or perceived differences in sound quality, the sheer pleasure of a physical medium does it for me.

I think vinyl sounds better than digital, but I don't care to measure it. The act of putting an LP on the turntable, cleaning it and then listening is part of the overall experience. Streaming, no matter how good the quality, just doesn't give me the same buzz.

It's not about sound quality, but then to be honest, most of this hobby isn't. You can have the best quality imaginable, but all the pleasure is removed. Sorry, but I'll take my distorted vinyl source, my distorting tube pre (though not, in fact) and my hideously distorting (wonderfully so) tube power amp.

And I'll enjoy listening.

I do download and stream stuff, but not to the extent that it sucks the life out of the experience.
