When at home LPs are generally my preferred source. I adopted CDs right from the beginning because ticks and pops took me right out of the experience of listening to music, Now that I have returned to vinyl 30 plus years later with better equipment I was stunned how good vinyl LPs can sound. But realistically you need both analog and digital. There is material available on each that will never be available for the other format. Plus you will need digital for music on the go. The SC-2 makes it so easy to digitize my music I can listen to LP only material anywhere with comparable sound. Big win.
