I started listening to digital music (mp3s) after I got a free 1st gen ipod shuffle from Telus for signing up for internet. This replaced my discman for my bus rides to university. At home, though, I listened to just cds and vinyl. Now I mainly listen to vinyl, and some cds (through my ADL GT40 DAC). The visual aspect of albums and singles is inextricable from the music for me. I love the whole process of playing music from some type of physical media. At this point I find it hard bring myself to spend money on something as insubstantial as a digital download. I have only bought 2 digital songs so far.
