Carrying on from from a couple of comments made in the thread about SACD I thought there should be a thread on the way we like to listen to our music and the formats we get them on etc.
You just can't beat vinyl. Never have done. I have a collection of vinyl and CD. CD is best for general playing and finding songs easily. I may pick certain albums on CD or vinyl sometimes on price or how I think I may listen to it. Nothing beats though my B&W P7 headphones ,sitting back and immersing in a favourite record. ( Which should be black). For many years stuff was unavailable on LP or very limited I have a lot of CDs from that time along with lot of second hand records . I have an i pod for portability with most of my CDs on it plus a few other bits and pieces. We also have an Alexa which is ok as long as you can remember what you want to hear and don't want info on any tracks .Mrs Farmer loves it.
I have newish speakers Q acoustics Concept 20s I went from floorstanders to something small. I love them . I have my 30 year old Linn Axis deck. Not quite the LP12 but I love it . It's been with me longer than than the current Mrs Farmer and both my children. An old Arcam alpha 7 CD player and a newish Marantz amp . Still can't make my mind my mind up about the Amp. When I do change anything on the system ( very rare) there is always something else to hear .
