I'm sure there will be some division on this. But those of you who casually collect your favorite albums on vinyl... Do you actually listen to the records or are they primarily collectors items?

This is not meant to be a snarky question. It's genuine, I assure you.

I listen to them. If there's a nifty variant I want specifically as a collectible, I'll buy that and another copy to play.

I don't own a record player, but on Thursdays my friends and I have record listening night and I'll bring some of my albums over.

That is awesome. I've always wanted to do that.

My record player is a piece of shit, so for now I just collect stuff, but I don't really buy vinyl too often, unless it's record store day or something... but that will probably change once I get a better turntable

I listen to all of mine, if you're not gonna listen records I don't see the point in buying them. You may as well just print a record cover onto a piece of cardboard and let it sit there.

I listen to all of mine. But some of the more rare ones I own don't get played much.

Yeah, I definitely listen to my vinyl even though my player is kind of crappy.

I always listen to them, but I do enjoy them for their aesthetic value as well.

Damn that's such a gnarly idea, I wish I could do this with some friends.
