I must admit I did used to love rushing home after buying a vinyl record and taking it out the sleeve and playing it, it had a certain smell, I never really had that thrill with cd's. I must admit I used to love djing with vinyl, only did it a couple of times with cd's, but with a laptop it is a piece of cake, not as much fun as vinyl, but I doubt I could carry 70,000 singles around with me.

Thinking about random stuff as i was at work today, this topic came into my thoughts and another angle to Christophers argumant that there's no point of a record collection came to mind.
By suggesting this Christopher , you are also saying that there's no point in buying any music - either as downloads or hard copies. After all , you buy music to keep don't you - that's what buying things is all about. You buy things you like , so you can keep them. So by owning some music , you are also 'collecting' it by default.
Just a thought.
