Sigh I should have made this multiple choice, haha.

If you you get your music in multiple formats, vote for your most purchased format.

I only ever buy vinyl. Well that's not strictly true but I buy so little CDs that its hardly worth mentioning. I have been toying with the idea of getting a final scratch (or similar) so that I can start buying digital downloads instead.

I buy vinyl and record it all. It sounds nicer that way. I'm not overly keen on the mastering for most CDs and digital downloads.

I basically hardly (have time to) listen to music, and when I do it's always downloads, or on rare occasions Pandora.com.

Fair do's. I listen to music all the time. I spend loads on it each month.

I would gladly pay for digital download releases, if I had some kind of credit card that beatport or the other sites like ...

the only thing that disturbs me is the compression (the volume control, limiting etc ...). I've had stuff released digital and allthough it sounded good (on it's own) it was very different in terms of headroom and dynamics as opposed to vinyl.

we don't NEED to squash your music, just raise the volume on our amplifier during playback ...
