I listen to my records, but there are a couple rare ones that I bought before I had a record player that I have never played (Deja & TDAG). I really dont know why I'm holding out because I would never sell them, but i just have never been able to bring myself to play them for some stupid reason.

I really want to get into vinyl collecting but sadly it really isn't something I can afford right now.

Uh, why would people not listen to them? The whole "point" (as it were) of records is that they sound better than CDs. That's why I buy them. I already have or can easily get all of these albums digitally.

I always open them up and listen. Especially when they throw in a nice b-side or something.

I think a little bit of both, I primarily get them to be played but it's definitely also hard for me to play the ones that are super rare fearing that I might damage it in some way as I am a giant klutz. Combine that with the fact that my record player is also a cassette/ radio player and it's really old so it's always a pretty delicate operation.

I Definitely listen to them while reading the lyrics (if the record comes with them that is. It's half the fun for me, so I'm bummed when the lyrics aren't included)

I don't buy vinyl, but I cannot understand why someone would buy a record and not listen to it. It'd be like buying a book and not reading it.

The best part is showing off all the different colors. 'these are my red records...these are my blue records...and this one is see-through with pink and black speckles!'
