DLers: What Is The Primary Way You Listen To Music?

Are you streamer or do you stick with CDs and LPs?

by Anonymousreply 1009/16/2020

None of the above. I have all my CDs burned or ripped to iTunes on an external hard drive, which is attached to my laptop. I'm listening to one of my many versions of the Beach Boys' SMiLe now. I like the sound much better than either CD or LP. I have computer speakers from Bowers and Wilkins.

I sometimes listen to classical radio when I go to bed, but that's not "primary."

I have to admit it's cassettes. Years ago I made dozens and dozens of CD dubs onto cassettes. All genres.

I never got into downloading or Sirius or iPods or Alexa or anything like that. Just have boomboxes around the house (I have CDs, too- but mostly Classical).

My 2002 Volvo wagon has a cassette player, too.

Sadly, it's been a couple years since I taped a song. I just don't like whispercoo pop-rap from overly tattoed wispy waifs (I think the last song I taped was by Miley Cyrus).

Miley Cyrus hadn't been born yet the last time I made a cassette tape.

I still use my cd player when in my car, and I rip my CDs to Windows Media Player when I'm listening to music at my PC.

Most Datalounge posters listen to their music on their gramophones OP but I notice you left this option out.

Why is that?

I thought "LP" would cover gramophone use and "radio" would cover "the wireless" R8

This a capella version of Marvin Gaye singing "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" is hot on Twitter today.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
