If you’re an early fan of digital downloads and digital music, you might remember the days of going into iTunes and buying any track for 99 cents and having it downloaded to your iPod or computer. But with the advent of streaming, how many of you are actually buying digital tracks and downloading them?

While there is a niche for high-resolution or HD audio files, with companies like HD Tracks offering master quality or high-resolution versions of both modern and classic remastered albums, it’s maybe a little bit different than what we’re talking about today. Although we’d still be interested to know whether you buy albums in high-res and download them.

With the advent of streaming and now having a massive catalog for a fairly small fee every month to subscribe, how many of you are downloading? The truth is, many people aren’t. There’s not much point when you can stream pretty much anything you want on-demand.

However, there is an exception. If you find an album that you really love and it’s not available on physical media, and this is the case with many releases, particularly from smaller artists these days that are independent productions, you may want to actually have a copy to support the artist. In this case, purchasing a download would be the best option.

If there’s physical media available, whether it’s CD or LP, it’s usually preferred by many. But the days of actually going into iTunes and paying to download a file are over for many of us.

What about you? Do you still buy digital tracks and download them? Or are you content with streaming? Let us know in the comments below.
