This is the main reason I've for the most part stopped buying CDs and switched over to vinyl. With CDs I would just import them into my computer and listen to the music on my iPod at work or in the car. I never listened to them on my home stereo since the sound quality was about the same as docking my iPod. With vinyl it does sound better and it's a bit more interactive. I was lucky enough to get one of the Revolution LPs and it's fucking gorgeous. Obviously the music is why I got it and with the digital tracks I can listen to it wherever. However when I play it at home I'm admiring the artwork, the liner notes and even the red and black color of the record itself.
