    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    CDs by far, but haven't really listened to a lot of vinyl.

    I am in love with this FLAC format. Superb tool to archive my CD collection. Though wish they could increase the compression % from existing 35 to atleast 60-70.

    You can use VLC player to play them. It has perfect quality.

    For info on Flac, refer here --> FLAC - Free Lossless Audio Codec or here ----> Free Lossless Audio Codec - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Is there any way of converting them to files that I can put on a CD and play?

    I am clueless with this stuff

    Hmm.. I am not sure your CD player could support FLAC files.

    You may see it here--> FLAC - links

    Well obviously vinyl is the best for listening quality. However it is also the least cost-effective version. CDs prior to say, 1999 are generally good as they still tended to use analogue mastering techniques. Anything after that, you turn it up and get a bunch of distortion. Really bad.

    MP3s are generally useless in terms of listening quality, especially when you get the screeching or poor quality conversions.

    I'm not actually going to vote for anything, because I listen to MP3s for convenience, but don't tend to enjoy them to the fullest, and as GIMH said, if I had an album on both CD and vinyl, I'd listen to the vinyl. But I don't own any vinyl at all. I do still buy CDs and listen to them on occasion.

    Converted all my music albums into MP3, burnt them all onto CDs and that's it.

    Went through a bit of an ogg phase, but for me nothing matches the quality of recording the charts off the radio, especially if you manage to press record and stop at the right times to cut off the presenters voice.
