What is your favorite music medium? For me it's the good old fashioned cassette tape. I don't even know why.

Records (33, 45 and 78s), and mp3's, I have a few CDs somewhere, but I don't really mess with tape anymore these days.

My PC is rigged to my Hi-Fi, so i usually play MP3s these days.
CDs also, but not as often.

I recently went through my cd collection. Managed to slim it down by about 150 (About 10%). I love all the one's I've kept, but as a collection it's just too unwieldy. So as soon as I've the money for a computer and Ipod with a bit of decent memory, I'll be putting them all on there.

Tapes I ended up buying cheap in the last decade. Picking up dozens for 50p a time or so. Haven't even listened to them all. Once I've finished paring down my classical CD's, I'm moving onto them. God knows how I can convert them to MP3. Not that technologically minded.

It really depends what type of music for me. Mp3 is convenient with fairly good sound quality, but not so good for something with lots of detail. Vinyl has the fabled analogue warmth going for it, I did the taste test with Pather panchali (improvised side) switching between the original vinyl and the CD and the vinyl did actually sound better to my ears. CD is perfect for orchestral stuff with lots of detail and music of digital origin. Its all very subjective really. then again old tape is quite convenient if I just want some sounds down in my basement whilst im doing something.
So I spose all have their pluses and minuses.

CD or lossless audio formats such as FLAC which TDL mentioned.
