If I have guests over, or having dinner, or doing stuff around the house, I either stream digital radio or have my vintage amp and Tuner playing whichever stations I prefer. In these events I don't have time to do critical listening, but I want good sounding music in the house. I also like to be surprised by the DJ's, some have excellent taste and I always get introduced to something new in that medium.
When I have time for critical listening I prefer CD or vinyl. I'm on a computer all day for work, the last thing I want is to spend more time on a computer or tablet.
My dream from when I was a teen was to acquire a nice HiFi system (from the 1970's) and just enjoy it. Over the years I have met people and picked up vintage gear and I'm very happy with where I'm at. I also have a house with room for a decent sized stereo, vinyl and CDs.
As a teen I used to collect comic books. I enjoyed going to comic book stores near me, going through the bins, talking to others about their favourite artist, writer, inker, which storylines they liked, etc. I've kept the comics that meant something to me and look forward to reading them again.
I find the same when going to record stores; going through bins, talking to people about mastering, pressing, which year was good for a certain album, etc. It's social and fun, and I always learn new things. Yes an AI app can tell me what music I may like based on my listening algorithm...but people are good to talk to, some become friends, and can provide points of reference from their experiences.
I also love 1960's muscle cars. To me my audio system is like a vintage hot rod as most of my gear has been updated/upgraded. People have both a new car with all the features that make them comfortable, and drive them every day. And on weekends they'll drive their hot rods and vintage muscle cars for pure enjoyment. They don't expect them to do everything, but they elicit a feeling and enjoyment they don't get with their new car.
If you have the funds, space and time to enjoy physical media, then just do it. I've met a few new audio friends who had high end gear with vinyl and CD, then sold it all to go digital. About a year out they all went back and reacquired those items (turntables, amps, vinyl LPs, CDs).
They all said the same thing; music became background noise from an appliance. They needed to feel connected again. Interesting....
Last night I was about to turn off the stereo but on the Tuner some amazing Jazz came on, with a solo double bass, the sound stopped me from going further. I turned off the room lights, sat in my chair, and enjoyed the glow from the Tuner and Amp, watching the meters do their dance. I ended up listening for another hour...
