    Hey,

    What is the main way you listen to music? Some may use many different ways, but is there one you use more than others?

    I'm in the "Other" camp! :yep:

    I listen to FLAC files ripped from CD or downloaded from naughty websites when I own the vinyl for the most part. If I'm really in the mood to just listen, I'll go with the vinyl.

    Went for "other" as it's mostly mp3/aiff/wav etc files ripped from CD rather than downloaded.

    I also listen to CDs and vinyl on the stereo from time to time and discover new music by streaming on youtube.

    You listen to both pop and classical? That's a pretty odd combination to me.

    Really? I'd say that was the case for a good proportion of people, it depends how serious a mood I'm in (although you could say that Straus was 18th and 19th century pop music). I listen to it that way round because sound quality doesn't matter so much for it

    I didn't know a good proportion of people (not referring to you) listen to classical music much.

    Well obviously no as many as listen to pop music (other wise it is not pop music), but I shouldn't think it is unsusual for people who listen to classical music to listen to pop music also. 'Tis good to have an eclectic taste but important not to ascribe musical worth to something just because it is popular

    Hi, sorry this isn't really relevant, but I'm doing my dissertation on the reasons why people listen to music, and if anyone could spare a minute (if that) to complete my questionnaire it'd be really appreciated. Thanks!!

    Was against the whole streaming thing for the longest time due to signal/cutout worries, going with mp3/etcs, but the '99p for 3 months' thing drew me in to Spotify. Now I'm in the ecosystem I'm scared to leave (such convenience). Those sneaky marketers!

    I torrent, download and youtube my music (and use my ipod/itunes)
    I used to buy loads of CDs, though, and I've bought loads of merch and gig tickets, so I'm probably neutral overall

    Youtube. I do have a sizable collection on my PC but I only use it when my internet dies.
