What is your preferred music listening format?

What is your preferred music listening format?

Compact disc sales are in steady decline as most younger listeners opt for streaming services like Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube. Millennials are also the driving force behind vinyl sales growth (since 2008) as 9.2 million units were sold in 2014, up 51.8% from 2013.

I was a heavy vinyl collector growing up, made mixtapes, dropped cassettes and vinyl in favor of CDs in the mid 1980s, then years later reintroduced vinyl into my collection while increasing streaming through a SONOS system. I still listen to CDs and vinyl, but my streaming time has been on the upswing.

How do you listen to jazz music and where do you purchase it?
