Where do you buy your music?

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 

I'm curious as to where you guys buy your music. iTunes, Amazon MP3, CD's, something else?

Amazon MP3 nearly exclusively for online audio, and most used cds through Amazon marketplace or ebay. Itunes I've only dappled with a couple of times because I had gift cards there. Prices are very reasonable IMO.

used CD's mostly, so the industry gets the message that lossy audio and loudness war are very much not OK.

I get all my music from my county library.

Since I subscribed to Naxos Music Library and MOG I don't really buy much music any more unless it's something they don't have and I really want. Then I'll get the hard copy (CD) and add it to my digital library.

www.qobuz.com

 

 

Great french website for every file format imaginable (including hi-res music).  I find they have everything I'm usually looking for - from rock to rap to jazz to classics.

 

 

Only problem is that they sometimes limit sales to french addresses only, so you'll have to put in a hotel address or something to bypass the check.

 

Also, you'll have to be able to read french or use google translate (or chrome's built-in translator).

 

 

7digital.com is another decent website.

Yep, I agree with that.

I get a lot of music CDs from the local library. When I find one I really like I often buy a copy to support the artist. Ummm... maybe I should just send a dollar to the composer and artist and cut out the middlemen.

Crazy thing for me these days is I can go thru 30 CD's of new music a week now and not find one track I want to keep.  But that is a good Idea.  Send the dollar right to the composer.

CDs are the best. For some reason, I avoid downloading mp3s from iTunes.

Amazon CD

CD's, but at $30-$40 a pop after shipping and stuff it's really getting tiring. I only buy to support the artists that I like.

CDs at our local music store.

HD Tracks (digital on-line - FLAC)

Bandcamp (again digital on-line - FLAC)
