I-Tunes for 3 years now - listen, buy, listen to other recommendations, cheaper. I also make up my own playlist albums, just picking the songs I like from a band's back catalogue.

I listen to music mostly in the car as a sales engineer. My car has the convenient USB input and the songs are scrolled onscreen from the steering wheel fingertip controls. CDs would be inconvenient to store and dangerous to keep changing. I couldn't give a monkeys about the CD artwork and probably don't know the names of half the albums I own, but I'll sing every harmony line straight off.

If I use a sound system set-up for MP3s, they sound just as good as CDs. When I played MP3s on my old hi-fi, they sounded thin & crap so I sold it and joined the 21st century.

Haven't used vinyl since 1990

MP3s don't need dusting either !!!

If a band has set up its own (eg) Tunecore digital account, they will get 3-4 times per sale what a label will pay them for a CD sale, tho the label has paid for the promo (you hope) and a good chunk of the costs your paying for went to transport companies
