There's an interesting report out showing Amazon stealing marketshare from Apple for music downloads.

Amazon has 22% of the market and iTunes is now at 63%.

Where do you buy your music? Is your choice based on selection, price, gift cards you receive, quality, or other? Do you buy from just one place, or do you buy from several?

I get all my stuff off Amazon because usually when I go into HMV they have to order it anyway.

I voted for two, but I buy CDs from Amazon and AACs from Apple.

Most of our purchases are for the iPods, so we go thru iTunes and that's where the vote went. But if I order a (SA)CD for the higher resolution, we usually go thru Amazon.

Amazon for discs AND downloads. I started using them for MP3s because at the time they were using higher data rate files. I think others offer that now too.

I buy from just about everywhere they sell CD's. Amazon, Target, Walmart. But I've discovered a music/video store that sells new and used in a small town I frequent only about ever 6 weeks now. So, I'll probably be buying from them for the most part, because of the cheaper prices.

I don't buy unless it comes on a disc.

No options for me in the 'Poll'.

As I have been into SACDs for the past year, most of my purchases are from EBAY. It has the largest SACD selection from a myriad of vendors & often beat Amazon in cost. I presently have 2 from ebay on their way from the US for a total of $28 - pretty good deal IMHO.

Before I choose an album, I search the web for 'track samples' that are widely available & make my mind up then.

I occasionally buy a CD or DVD/BD concert video from a local retailer if the price is right.

I too like to have the physical medium in my collection, so I never download music. I guess that I'm a dinosaur...

I buy CDs from Amazon, they give me the MP3s for free, and I upload them to Google Play. So I voted for Amazon.

I try to buy CDs from Amazon.com. I still rip them into FLAC myself, but the AutoRip feature is nice for automatically having the MP3s in the cloud in case my normal MP3 player runs out of juice and I want to keep listening to my music with another device. I will occasionally buy the download, no CD, if it's a band I don't know well yet, the price is good, and there are exclusive tracks, like I did with Austra's album.

iTunes tends to be my last resort, but of course I'm a sucker for exclusive tracks, so they do make it into my purchase history.

The majority of CDs that I buy are from third party sellers on Amazon who have outstanding bargain prices on new or used items. I occasionally use a classical specialist such as Arkiv or one of the UK dealers such as MDT.
