    Hey guys wondering if you could help me, I'm just approaching the end of my stint at college and i need to run some surveys to complete one of my assignments. Would really appreciate honest answers.


    So I'm trying to work out If and When we will lose the physical formats of music all-together, and an important part of this is just to ask people what formats they currently buy.


    I'm going to make this multiple choice so if you have purchased more than one please select all of them.
    Heres the question fingers on buzzers.


    In the last 12 months, which formats of music have you purchased??


    Big thanks to everybody who has voted. Really appreciate it.

    99% of time its digital download, but sometimes i also buy cds, recently i bought Metalheadz Limited Edition CD Metal Box Set just because i wanted optical - shape to the future remix (no available as dd..), or i bought Shogun - The Way of the Warrior LP on cd last year cause it was only 1 or 2 pounds more expensive then digital donwload..

    99% digital. Plus a few really stand-out releases on vinyl and a few mixtape CDs.

    i wouldn't say its a waste of money
    yes its more expensive than a digital download
    but its better for so many reasons imo. downloads are just for christmans. vinyl is for life.
