Which do yo prefer and why?
It depends on the album. For things I'm going to listen to listen to only on rare occasion, I don't mind having digital copies of them. But if it's something I really love, then I want to have it on CD. Having a physical backup is always a good idea, there is a bit of collector's mindset to it, and albums that come with notes and lyrics are a nice way of getting a bit closer to the music.

I don't understand the appeal of vinyl, though. I get that it has bigger artwork, but the actual medium has worse sound. It clicks, pops, hisses, and you can't put the entirety of a recorded sound on it without making serious compromises. I hate to say I agree with Eddie Trunk, but CDs are the best mix of convenience, permanence, and sound quality.
