    I really like the old vinyl but its so hard to find parts for record players, plus the records are hard to keep scratch free. MP3 is the way to go.

    I like CDs and mp3's.
    Really, I prefer mp3's if they're ripped/encoded correctly (read: Lame+EAC VBR), or .ogg. I like those because
    I can put 100 or so good quality tracks on a disc and play it in my portable CD player, and I'm about to get an
    mp3 compatible player for my car. A CD will hold about 5 albums @ 192kbps or VBR, so it makes it more convenient
    to carry 20 CDs as opposed to 100.

    Vinyl is good to drag out every once in a while, especially on a good system & a well-cared-for record. Some bands
    still release albums on vinyl, such as Sparklehorse, & Godspeed You Black Emperor, and other, less obscure ones....

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    Cd - Vinyl - Tape - Mp3.......no thanks!

    I prefer a good ole 8-Track over all of the above.

    A few of my favorite 8-Tracks:

    The Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks: Here's the Sex Pistols



    Lou Reed - Metal Machine Music



    George Harrison - Cloud Nine



    Boston - Boston



    Pink Floyd - Animals



    Frank Zappa - Lumpy Gravy



    And I love to pull out the old Aquatron VX-33A 8 Track Player and crank it up - the neighbors just love it!



    And now you are asking: How Does 8-Track Work?

    The 8-track cartridge contains a length of 1/4 inch tape which runs in a continuous loop at 3 and 3/4 inches per second (ips). The tape is wound around a hub in the middle of the cartridge. It pulls out from the center and follows a path which brings it across the front edge of the cartridge where it makes contact with the playback head. A pressure pad helps to bring the tape into proper contact with the head. The pinch roller, which is inside the cartridge, presses against the capstan, which is part of the player. The tape, pinched between the roller and the capstan (which is spun by the player's motor), is thus moved across the head. The tape itself is divided along its length into 8 channels or tracks (hence the name "8-track").





    The tape head plays two tracks at a time--stereo! A metal sensing strip connects the ends of the strip of tape, forming the loop. Here's where the real 8-track magic happens. When the tape reaches the end of a program, the metal sensing strip connects with a solenoid coil in the player. This coil causes the playback head to shift along the width of the tape. This is the loud "click' or "clunk" sound you hear between 8-track programs. The playback head, shifted to it's new position, begins to play the next program in the sequence. This process can go on indefinitely, running through each of the four programs in sequence, until the world ends, or your batteries wear out, or the tape breaks.

    Cd - Vinyl - Tape - Mp3......No thanks, not in a million years.

    Tchau!
