A study on why people want to own music
Emusic blog recently published an interesting study. In it they investigate why people who already have a streaming account prefer to also own music. The study was carried out on a large part of their members. According to the study “virtually no member indicated that they weren’t streaming music”. However they reported that “83% of the time they are listening to their own music collection vs. a streaming music service.”. Wonder how many listen to vinyls.
I do it all, play vinyls, collect CDs and stream music
I admit I do the same. I collect vinyls, especially classical music vinyls. I use Roon (the amasing audio player catering to audiophiles and collectors) to manage my CD collection and to stream music through Tidal. And I use Spotify to stream music on the go and discover new music. Spotifys AI is so far the best. But there is nothing as relaxing as loading a nice copy of classical music vinyl on to the turntable and sit back and relax.
