Interesting argument, c-net is hosting both sides:

background music is fine...

stop what you're doing, and listen to vinyl...
http://www.cnet.com/uk/news/to-listen-to-m...s-the-question/

I don't see a "music should be listened to, but not from vinyl" option. Though I can't remember the last time I sat down and just listened to music at home. I often pay more attention to music in the car or when walking than I pay to the world around me (sorry other drivers), but that's still not listening in isolation.

OT: I'm probably old fashioned in that I spend an hour nearly every night just watching TV. Lights off, no phone/tablet/laptop/anything, watching something I've recorded days or weeks ago, and chosen to watch. Whereas I'm sure most people multitask when watching TV - I'm sure most TV programmes are edited with the assumption that you're not watching it properly.

Cheers,
David.
