I mainly buy re-releases of classic albums now - on vinyl, but if there's a deluxe package with the CDs as well - then I get that. Mainly I tend to get them as gifts for my birthday and Xmas.

I think in my entire life, I've bought about 2 dozen albums. I just don't buy music.

I once paid a kazoo player a quid to shut up before I ram it in his mouth if that counts

I buy CDs, rip them, and upload them to Google music so I can stream them. :D

I used to have a fairly decent-sized vinyl collection, but got shut of it before I moved to Australia as it just wasn't getting played any more. Some of it was worth a few quid, but most of it wasn't.

Still buy cd's and vinyl when it comes to music. I get a fair bit of obscure stuff that's not always online with streaming services.

I do use YouTube etc to find out what certain artists are like then purchase the physical media.

I still buy physical music. That's often limited editions of new albums from groups I like, including vinyl.
I do buy digitally too.

Physical media where possible. However some of the Japanese / Korean / Latin music I listen to can be very expensive to import on CD so I'll buy mp3s of some artists.

I buy CDs then rip at high quality to MP3 so that I have flexibility to put them on my phone.

As above, I buy CDs and grab my MP3s that way. Having said that, I still carry a dedicated MP3 player I bought a decade ago instead of using my phone.
