    Do you actually listen to the CD or do you only buy it to support your fave and turn it into a collection?
    I'm only asking this since iTunes has been an alternative for many so that they can buy it off iTunes instead of buying the actual CD.

    Buy the album to support, but listen to their music on YouTube or Spotify.

    I buy them because I prefer to have the physical album (then put it on iTunes) and because I like their packaging

    I only buy the albums for the photobook, poster, and the photocards. other than that, the cd is untouched. I only use the cds like twice.
    I listen to the songs on YT or I download them.

    I collect CDs. I have over 200 of them (few of them are K-pop) and I rarely get them out of their case.

    Downloading MP3s and playing them on my phone or computer is much more convenient, but nothing beats the feeling of owning a physical copy IMO.

    I buy them, rip to my computer and play on the Stereo. I only download super rarely for example my last dl was the english fly album (bought korean and then found the english later). I only buy music of groups i am totally vested in, and then i buy it all. I do take the lossless rip to my portable players with a few 100 songs on it to listen to at work.

    They're well over $20 a piece for me (even used), so I very rarely buy them. But on the occasions that I do, I don't listen to them often because I don't remember to go looking through the CD stacks to find them. I tend to just listen to music on the computer through YouTube or uploaded albums, when I remember to upload them.

    I don't use the CD just because I want to keep it in mint condition LOL
    tbh I don't even buy it to support, I just buy it because I want it (thought supporting them would be a plus)

    I buy the music and support.
    I listen to CDs in the car when I drive. I blast it loud with the windows rolled down.
