I prefer CD, mostly for 90's Techno / Trance. If I play that on a record player on my preferred volume, the needle would end up next to the turn table :) Fun fact, most of the CDs I enjoy are recordings of mixing from records, pops and crackles all captured during the more quieter parts. CD is the best record player!
That was definitely a more scientific post than mine.
I've got a few traumatic experiences with CDs, but none with vinyl. Because I've never used vinyl. Those flimsy CD cases break so easily, and the discs themselves can be quite delicate too. I'll admit I'm not the most careful person in the world, but I've had CDs I've taken good care of end up all scratched and awful to listen to.
Nowadays, I'm going full digital. Buying music in 24-bit FLAC when possible. The worst thing that can happen to digital files is your HDD breaking, not a problem if you make a backup before that happens. Not like hard drives break all the time anyway.
