    I think cd's are the worst format.  You have to store them, but they don't sound a lick better than lossless digital.  I retired my cd player and ripped all my cd's at least 10 years ago, when I got my first Squeezebox.  
    And I agree Ipods are great, particularly for cars.  Bluetooth audio is fantastic in a vehicle, or even better, a little 64gb USB is the best.  It sounds 100x better than Sirius, which is just awful.  I have it and use, but I can barely listen to PJ radio because it sounds so bad.

    Though I have no means to play our vinyl or cd's, I refuse to part with them for purely sentimental reasons.

    vinyl is nothing but an overpriced money grab. you need dog hearing you tell any difference from a good ol' CD. plus, vinyl is problematic in a vehicle.

    I agree.
    Also, if you don't shell out for high quality equipment, there's no difference worth noting.
    Who has a car stereo system that is good enough to tell an MP3 from a CD?  Do adults still buy after market car stereos?  I thought that perished in the flames of Woodstock '99

    You don't need to buy a crappy looking alpine or Pioneer when you can get Bowers or Bang & Olufson in some vehicles.  And yes,  a cd is better than mp3 in that environment.

    But that's not really the argument.  It was about vinyl.  And yes you're right,  you have to shell out $ for audiophile equipment.  If you're playing a low end TT into a Sony avr and Pioneer speakers,  then you probably wouldn't heart a difference.  But if you have a good setup,  you will.

    Wobbie, that is why you listen through headphones.
    For me, it is less about the sound and more about the experience.
    I have my JMXO vodka rocks.
    I have my headphones.
    Family is all in bed - and I engage with the music.  It is loud - very loud - and I hold the jacket in my hand, feet up on my desk, chair leaned back.  
    This format makes it so I feel compelled to listen to the whole album, or at worst the side of the album, and I feel like I am a kid again.
    I hear all of the things I miss when I am rocking out and working, driving, cooking, or fucking.
    It is about the music, and really not much else

    Many times I have the liner notes there....and I read the lyrics as I hear them.

    I get that it is not for everyone.

    Works for me.  

    I'm relatively new to the "game" and have spent thousands.

    I know a guy whose entire garage is filled with records and looks like a record store.  He has been collecting for nearly 30 years and he swears he has paid more than $15 for a record only a small number of times.  Most of his records were garage sale / flea market type purchases for a buck.

    I clean them.  Before I start each record I methodically clean again with 2 types of brushes, and then I clean the stylus.

    I feel ready; to listen.

    To each their own, of course.  

    I'm going to listen to an album right now....and I'm going to enjoy myself.

    That looks suspiciously like a Newbury Comics special.  

    I don't listen through headphones, but I like to listen loud.  When I finished my third floor, I put a special sound deadening barrier down before I laid the wood (ha!).  And then I installed an exterior door (insulated) rather than an interior.  The result is that my wife and kids can't hear anything down below up to about -15 db, which is plenty loud.  
    It's 10:30 now, so I think I'm going to listen to my new Albini mastered 45 of In Utero.  Haven't opened it yet.

    Yah, I think it is.  Serious nostalgia for this one...my buddy in college had a record player and after we watched Res Dogs (on a sneak peak at USC) he couldn't stop talking about the soundtrack and bought it as soon as he could.  Heard it 1000x, easily. 

    I didn't have it and when they posted this for sale it made an easy grab.

    And, I would love to crank it up loud, but really...what I realized when I started listening through headphone was that it was very intimate.  I have listened to loud music alone in a room many times - for me, the cans are a really cool way to digest it.

    I'm not an audiophile - I will leave that to you and @lolobugg -- I will continue to be the caveman idiot who loves to pop on the cans and enjoy his music.  No measurement here -- just an enjoyment factor.  (And that is 10x)
    Love it.
