vinyl vinyl vinyl! I'll buy the album on CD first if the Vinyl isn't available then when it comes out I'll get the vinyl and just sell the CD to a friend or something and make my own vinly rip to a CD. The way a simple needle can totally change your sound is amazing. I'm not saying vinyl is better then CDs (I think it is personally but that's a whole debate in and of itself) but it can be a lot more personal, dunno if anyone knows what I'm trying to say.

EDIT: I did forget to mention that my friend has told me in the past that the reason I may not be as willing to fully jump to CD or not care about the quality may stem from not having a good DAC and whatnot. Then again I'm just not interested. Vinyls you get nice big cover art, usually limited press and all that. Especially for the genre of music I listen to (Screamo, Indie, Expiremental) a lot of it is extremely limited (under 500 usually) different colours, covers (some are silkscreened, handmade, etc.) and even if its not limited some are just straight up amazing. Like the some girls pressing, there's about 1000 or so of each but they all have the lyrics etched onto the B-Side. So it's basically a one-sided 12" (probably could've been a double-sided 7" or 10" if they really wanted). Still pretty neat though. So much more "personal" IMO. Now, I don't understand necessarily people who collect the older stuff like Beatles Mono LPs and whatnot but to each his own...

It oughtn't to be, but then in practice many CDs are deliberately mastered badly -- another familiar topic here:
