Who's worse?

Vinyl collectors? Or cassette collectors?
>>
I collect 8 tracks.
>>
Personality wise cassette collectors by far, normal people like vinyl while with cassettes if they're not old or musicians / hardcore appreciators themselves they're hipster tattooed faggots who probably like Andrew Jackson Jihad and follow vapor wave tumblr accounts

Also there's nothing wrong with vinyl or cassettes themselves

Vinyl, because they think it actually sounds superior when its garbage

Streamers. People buying vinyl and cassette actually put money into the music industry.

What's /mu/'s take on CD collectors?
>>
>>61677542
Literally bazinga core.
>>
those years aren't really correct

cassettes weren't really that popular in the early 70s and CDs weren't big until the 90s
>>
>>61677560
Why ;~;

>>61677587
'87 was the year CDs really broke out. In fact, you couldn't get The Beatles on CD until then.

>>61676688
When you collect music, you get mp3s, cds, tapes and records
If you weren't an insufferable internet cunt, you wouldnt think badly of people for having stuff
>>
>>61676688
only the vinyl pre cds are ok

Just because the collection. Buy a vinyl made in 2014 is stupid
>>
>>61677542
>>61677646

At least we have each other...
>>
>>61676688

Other than demos and other releases exclusive to this format, I see no compelling reason to buy albums in cassette. Personal preferences after all.

I buy both vinyl and CDs.

OPs

Collecting vinyl and listening to vinyl is a legitimate hobby that serves a legitimate purpose, especially if the music you're buying was recorded analog. Cassette collecting is some unabashed hipster meme shit though. It's literally the worst data storage format. I don't know what they get out if it.
>>
>>61676688
I collect both, but have far more CDs than either. I only collect things in the other two formats if they have limited releases, for the most part. That's where the value comes from, for me. Having a copy of something that there are only 1000, even 100 of.
>>
>>61676688
You listen to music how you want to listen to it.
>>
>>61678048

That's bullshit anon, if you want to own physical media then vinyl is best.
>>
Streaming really bad? I haven't tried it. I just have lots of CDs
>>
>>61678139

It's cheap and it's hip. Hippier than CDs.
>>
>>61677406
Spoken like someone who's never heard a decent setup!

I'm not going to get into the whole analog vs digital thing, but if you have a good vinyl setup, you will be VERY pleased with the sound. Far from garbage.
>>
>>61678182
No, for physical media, CDs are the best. For analog physical media, vinyl are best. Vinyl is objectively worse than CD.

Before you think out some stupid reply, this is /mu/ and not /fa/.
>>
>tfw you bashed vinyl fags for being nostalgic fucks but then you realize now that all music is streamed that there will inherently have to be some physical format that wins out and why the fuck shouldn't it be vinyl

Seems really pretentious and retarded to me. I don't even have a cassette player in my fuckin' house man lmao, like are these hipsters going out and buying tape decks and walkmans and shit now? Fucks sakes.
>>
>>61678288
>why the fuck shouldn't it be vinyl
Because CD is better.
>>
>>61678340
why is cd better
>>
>>61676688
Legitimate reasons to collect vinyl: more room for album art, more aesthetic packaging.
Legitimate reasons to collect cassettes: none.
Vinyl wins.

Higher fidelity.

get a good record player anon, I never listen to my cd player, and it's good.

If I go places I go ahead and use MP3s, CDs in car and stereo only. For security purposes.

Second this, if you're going out and buying one of those shitty Crosley record players, there's no point in owning a record collection.

I won't get any record player since I'm not a gullible retard placebo addict.

Congrats

>>61676688
first: can I download it? done! not available for download, or was it reissued best during the CD era? boxset acquired!

not available online, AND never transferred to the CD or mp3 download/streaming model? then I go and buy a vinyl LP - because I couldn't get the music any other way.

I get physical copies if I really like something, but I won't go for vinyl unless I absolutely must. some enjoy the prep/cleaning ritual - to me it's a hassle: something to avoid if I can manage it.
>>
>>61678139
>Cassette collecting is some unabashed hipster meme shit though
That's what people said about vinyl collectors when the LP started rebounding like ten years ago. They're both analog formats, what matters is the source.
>>
>>61677430
So you don't pirate things right?
>>
>>61678439

It's almost like you only listened to vinyl in a Crosley
>>
>>61679042
The difference between streaming and pirating is that people pirating don't pretend that they are actually paying the artist. Streaming services are just leaches and bad for the environment.
>>
>>61678516

I love vinyl and all but this graph is bullshit
>>
>>61676688
why would you ever collect cassettes
>>
Definitely cassette fags. Such a shitty format. Vinyl at least has the appeal of increased fidelity (for some recordings) and large format artwork.

Cassette-fags are just playing into the "UPVOTE IF YOU'RE A 90S KID, LOL RUGRATS!!" nostalgia bullshit
>>
>>61679106
fucking this
>>
>>61677542
CDs are going to make a comeback soon
>>
>>61676688
I think that cassette collectors are worse than vinyl, because of how most cassette formats degrade over time due to the read and write head design. In the end, I don't really care.

The most annoying in my opinion are streamers, because the majority don't know shit about sound quality and such. YouTube to mp3 users are a close second.

the only way to give money to the artist is meet the artist (producer included) and give them money directly.

If you care enough to share in flac you are a cool guy otherwise you're a fucking pleb.

The only problem with this cartoon is that The Beatles weren't released on C.D. until 1987, and then it was only the British catalogue. Meet The Beatles wouldn't be released on C.D. until 2004.

I want my descendants to be able to enjoy hits of the past.

Oh who am I kidding, I'll probably never procriate anyway.
>>
>>61680305
*procreate

>>61676688
With vinyl you can at least say there is a different sound quality or ritualistic by needing to turn the record over, tapes have no redeeming qualities
>>
>>61680184
I have thousands of cds I could share in WAV but I never would since almost all pirates are self entitled dickbags so I won't.

Why should I give you my flacs?

What have you ever done for me?

vinyl collectors who buy garbage LPs because it's a fashionable thing to do

Not if it is the only format it is released on.
