The good old audio CD mastered properly is as good as digital sound needs to be. That is why I own a bunch of them. And some not as nicely mastered ones dry.gif But ripping is a nice hobby and I like having a bunch of good quality music on my iRiver. I couldn't see myself buying lossy compressed music online. Maybe lossless but then I'd just rather own the CD.


+1 although I barely use mp3 players

CD although I might look into buying off iTunes now that everything is DRM free now.

Vinyl mainly because I buy mostly 70's and 80's and for the price of one iTunes song I get at least one album and often 2 or 3.

iTunes for the rare new song or stuff that I can't find on vinyl and happens to be on iTunes.

CD for the very rare old artist that is still going, or very very rare new artist that I like more than one song from.

Still CD-Audio, don't trust anybody else with the encoding to lossless or lossy.
