    CD for me (without reading any of the thread sorry , because as soon as the wise words of everyone else hits my brain , I lose the will to construct a proper reply!!!!)
    Because - I can slip the cd in that slot and sit in my old reclining chair (which was my mother in laws -very comfy too ) and caress the remote whilst moving the volume up and down at will .
    Otherwise its -I dont want that track because I dont like it ,and the crackles etc etc whereas the convinience of cd is so so lazy - zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
    I only ride 'em, I don't know what makes 'em work

    It's a score draw IMHO. The fact that there's such a variation in sound quality of both records and CDs, before we consider the merits of the equipment, throws it right up in the air. If equipment was the sole consideration then I'd say that on a budget CD would triumph pound-for-pound (mainly due to detail retrieval) but with more funds record comes into its own. I keep both and they each hit the spot in their own way. If I only have an hour and need a "hit" from a mix of tracks then I'll opt for CD, whereas if I have the time then letting a record run from end-to-end is one of life's great pleasures.

    Vinyl does ma nut in.....Lenco bastard machine!!!

    File based audio....buy the CD after hearing it on Spotify or the likes and rip it lossless.

    But.....when you spin that black bit of plastic and it comes together-it just does something intangible sonically that is beguiling.

    Fuck,Fuck,Fuck its shite having to admit the best sound ive heard hi fi wise came from a record player...its 2017 ffs.
