Hi Jim, hope this finds you well. You might want to rethink the concept of tapwater consumption. I distill my own drinking water in a one gallon distiller. You can see from the photos the remnants of the unboiled residue left in the pot post distilling. (I clean my distiller’s resevoir after each gallon boiled). The residue left after distilling is yellow, and stinks. Your water may be better, but my tapwater is definitely not so good. I start with filtered water, and distill it prior to drinking it.
To the OP, I buy the CD everytime if the price break is not significant, or high-res. I dropped Qobuz Sublime last year, and am using just Tidal for now… I have to really like the material to buy it, otherwise I just stream it.
@rrwwss52 See my post above (no2) bought over the last 54 years or so.
Another thing with buying physical media is that they still have a monetary value and can/could be resold. Quite a few records that I have bought are worth much more than I paid for them.
You cannot sell downloads.
Ok, the poll seems to have stalled at 32 votes, with the two options in a dead heat. I went ahead and cast the tiebreaker. Environment wins! Thank you all for participating! I got my download on Qobuz - along with The Smashing Pumpkins’ ATUM, which was a bargain at $9 for a triple album.
did any of you ever consider the time wasted and electrical power generated to fuel this discussion about signalling someone’s virtuous opinions of environmental empathy, in regards to a simple music source choice? What a WOFTAM.
