An iPod is a regular part of my world. I also (almost) always buy - and listen to - complete albums from iTunes, not just individual songs. My wife and teen-aged daughter (and most of the music-buying public), however, don't share the same sensibility.

At home, however, (when I have the time), just sitting and listening to an LP - purely for the sake of listening - is thoroughly enjoyed, and not relegated to being just a background to other activities.

My favorite hi-fi forum...http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/index.php. Vinyl freaks are welcomed with open arms.

What I do miss is the presence of LPs, but I don't know how much of that is nostalgia.
There's no doubt that vinyl needs some extra love, but clean, un-damaged LPs sound REALLY good - even on a moderate-budget system.
