    And not because you lost it or broke it or it was stolen.

    I swear we live in a world where everything must be in beta, because I gotta keep buying it over and over and over again every couple/few years, right? Phones, TV, computers, cars, music & videos. Guitars, amps, pedals, cables (sheesh, cables cost a fortune!).

    Ah dude! Perfect reply, this wins the thread.


    Batteries? Guitars, Shoes, Clothes etc etc are easy replies...

    I'll buy multiple copies of an album on vinyl, sometimes when thrifting I'll find some good albums that even tho I already have, can't pass them up for $1 etc... Quite a few albums I have duplicates in various conditions.

    So... stuff that you had one of, but then decided to get more of the exact same, despite the old one still working and being in your possession? I mean, batteries or beers... but you only buy new ones because you did "break" the old ones, right? :shrug:

    If my assumption above is correct... I sure have a lot of spares. Batteries, valves, media, cables, all kinds of construction material, strings, light bulbs, components, tools. Spares of anything within reason always seemed good to have.

    I'm surprised music isn't the first answer from you guys.

    With all the media format changes over the decades I'm betting most everyone has bought the same music multiple times again... Vinyl, 8 track, cassette, CD, MP3/Digital etc etc etc....

    Nah, vinyl always went straight to cassette to preserve the original/portability. Reel to reel never featured many originals (at least here in Europe). Skipped 8 track. CD was fine but not editable. Then came MD, so another rip from the master (vinyl or CD). Burning copies of CD's and creating compilations. Enter the computer and buying pretty much stopped - certainly after the record shops all closed down. I'd guess that most of us here have some form of recording facility if not a home studio to some extent. I've digitized my entire music collection and see no reason to ever change again, really.

    Now the trend is all that online streaming stuff. Call me old fashioned but I prefer a hard copy, even if that hard copy is a conglomeration of bytes spread out over the disks in an array.

    Media conversion used to be a thing. I worked for a company specialised in it. True, most of it was video (S-VHS/VHS/BetaMax/(mini-)DV/DVD/etc), but plenty wanted their audio transferred, too. I think the only thing I ever bought again in a different format was Pulp Fiction (VHS, then later DVD), mainly because a buddy of mine permanently had that tape at his place, so I told him to keep it and "upgraded".

    Before I get flamed, I do understand the notion of "having the LP doesn't permit you to make copies for yourself", but that's a legal quagmire. If I'm listening to the same material it should be of no concern to the artist (who is the party involved that I respect most of all) what kind of media I use. Heck, most artists hardly make anything off of record sales. It's merchandise and concerts. I used to buy the odd t-shirt or something like that - especially if I really liked the artist in question. :shrug:

    I totally get this and think it's super clever, I am of the belief that once you bought the album, be it vinyl or CD or whatever, that you "own" those songs and silly to be required to pay for them again digitally. I mean if you have the vinyl and want the CD I get you'll have to pay for the updated media but say you own the vinyl you should have access to digital copies at no extra cost... I know that is a pipedream and record companies would never accept that.

    I must admit I do love the ability to stream, the convenience of throwing any album on quickly is nice BUT I will ALWAYS love the vinyl ritual and imho it's the best way to experience an album. I am one that believes there is definitely more "depth" and "spread" in the frequency range compared to a compressed format... I hear the difference so never get involved in those arguments that digital is better or "just as good"

    Whether vinyl or digital it's still compressed just in a different way. To fit all that info into those tiny grooves requires some level of compression.
