I do. Vinyl is cool and all, if you don't mind paying double/triple the price and unless you have a top of the range system, be prepared to enjoy some bonus sound effects like clicking, popping, hissing etc. And with digital music, there's always the risk that the original/official source will disappear from the internet (broken links) and how much SP material has Billy pulled from Spotify now?
I know it's all about personal preference and what kind of “music playing device” you have in your possession that will influence what music format you choose to buy/not buy. But with a CD, you get lyrics/album art/liner notes/track annotations, half the price of vinyl, can play in a car, stereo, dvd/blu ray player etc, can rip to computer if needed, $upports the artist... It's the best of both worlds!
This is the hill I will die on.
