I remember 8 tracks, than cassettes, and CD's. But it's 2017, and time to evolve. I prefer digital copies of my music, and movies.

Phaysical... but i feel old now. :(

Don't feel old! I know this isn't the same thing but I'm sure if you walked into a 'young' 'hipster' persons house, there would be a photograph on the wall thats been framed. :) Sometimes, things become more valuable when you have the hard copy.

I definitely prefer having a digital album just because i can take 1 million of them with me on a camping trip go holiday and the hard copy would be a little difficult haha. You can even go a step further and just have a streaming service. Then you don't even need to store the files. :)

I currently stream most of my music, though I buy music from artists I want to support (All Saints, any of the Spice Girls solo stuff), mostly through ITunes. Most records I like are not physically released in my country ayways...

Depends on the artist. But if it’s a must have then I have both, on my phone and a hard copy. Other than that streaming is the way to go

I have no devices anymore to play physical albums. Therefore I prefer digital.

Especially now with Lossless being enabled for Music, I don’t see any reason to purchase physical albums.

Exactly this: I no longer have a CD player, so digital as well.

A few years ago, I would have said a physical copy, but now I'd have say that a digital copy is preferred. I rarely buy music and I couldn't tell you when the last time I bought an actual music CD from a store.

exactly this for me also..

As long as streaming services continue to allow lossless formats as they have now, digital will be fine for me. I have a decent DAC+Pre Amp+Amp. The only downside is it’s capped at 48 bit/96 kHz. Apple’s Hi-Res Lossless is 48 bit/192 kHz. Maybe I’ll worry about that later after lossless makes it to Android.
