    Default How many folk now use streaming and have sold all their other audio equipment?

    Has streaming made everything else redundant? Or do you keep the 'hardware' just in case the internet breaks one day?

    Strangely though the old hardware still gets sold on...........Somebody goes streaming, someone else decides they want to go to all the bother of putting a record on! And people still buy cdps, that is one I can't figure out. I understand why they keep them, but people buying new ones? Unless they're upgrading. Most strangely of all perhaps some folk still pay silly money for a fabled Naim Nat 101 tuner, when all you can get is crappy Steve wright in the afternoon, etc! Give me radio 6 any day of the week!

    That will definitely be classical fans.

    BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM are both great stations whether you're into it or not.

    The reason I go to all the bother of putting a record on is because it sounds so much better than streaming. I could say what I think of steaming and why people do it but it would be too rude to post here!

    Yep, streaming has pretty much taken over my musical listening.
    Vinyl has been totally expunged from my life, and good riddance. Should have had the sense to get rid of it years before.
    I have kept about 2000 CDs and the ability to play them on a 'just in case' basis. But they almost never get used. - Will doubtless come in handy when VladP decides it's time to take the internet down.
    I don't bother with internet radio, I did try but found it mostly tedious. I'd rather make my own choices and discoveries and there is no better way than streaming to do that.

    I am an occasional "film" watcher, and use DVDs for that.

    I rip all of my CDs to the NAS drive, I don’t have a CD player anymore. The Raspberry Pi3 into my USB audio interface with balanced outputs is almost a perfect setup for me. I still have my 401 though, it just sounds so good.

    Ripped all my cd’s years ago, still use both vinyl and R to R, but the majority of my listening is via Tidal these days.
    “Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”
