RE Headphones - I also love listening to music via headphones. In the days before everyone had mp3 players I used to spend about an hour listening to music from my stereo via headphones before going to sleep. Agree with Brumby about when bands utilise stereo properly; sometimes it's like you can feel the music moving from one earphone to the other. I think the Rolling Stones are one of the best bands for this personally.
Also, as much as I prefer vinyl I would never suggest I am going to start buying records instead of CDs. I will simply buy albums that my favourite bands release on both vinyl and CD, as well as completing my favourite band collections on vinyl. Some people think I'm a bit crazy spending my money that way, but meh, it's what I want
I really like vinyl, but I don't listen to it a lot honestly. By far the most common for me is mp3s.

Perhaps one of the audiophiles here can explain why vinyl of new recordings (digitally recorded, say, on Pro Tools and digitally mastered in same) should sound any different to the same recording played on a CD or sufficiently high bitrate non-physical media?
Vinyl pressings of analogue recordings mastered with analogue compressors sounding better than digitisation of said old recordings, that I get (digitisation is, obviously, an approximation of the original sound waves). But surely bands who record digitally but release their recordings on vinyl is nothing but a marketing ploy?
Downloaded FLAC ripper... ripped an Audio CD. Too big files imho. Quality is superb though.
Interestingly enough (or perhaps not) I was watching an old Axl Rose interview last week, from just before the UYI release, and he said he expected those albums to sound better on CD because that was what it was made for. UYI is one of my vinyl wants, seems easy enough to get hold of a mint-edition but not overly cheap, but will have to see if I agree with him or not when I get it
Hmm, pretty sure i've got UYI I on vinyl here, dunno about the disc quality though
Just checked, in good nick, amazing what you can find in charity shops
