I am becoming an audiophile but I still can give some decent advice. I would not go for vinyl because of price. Vinyl is more expensive and because the recording is on the grooves, I think you need to take good care of it or the grooves get screwed, music gets screwed. Also you need to buy this specialized dust gun thingy that demagnatizes dust to make it easier to clean. Stick with digital even though vinyl sounds better.
