BBC Radio at home or in the car.

Most of my music collection is in my head...it's for personal use only.

...forgot to add, the pub jukeboxes have become much more sophisticated.

It's good to hear some of the oldies, thru' a modern jukebox sound system, and sharing the experience with others.

Why on earth is MP3 player not listed?

I'd assume they thought MP3 player is covered by "purchased downloads", but there's not a single purchased download on my MP3 player, everything has been ripped from my CDs and vinyl.

Mp3 CD in the car

Make them up from my extensive collection.

iPhone with a mixture of purchased downloads and own CD collection. All of which have replaced my hi fi systems.

It's a difficult one to answer, as several of the categories overlap... which is probably indicative of the turmoil the music industry finds itself in.

I voted "music streaming services", as I stream my own music collection, and use Spotify, LastFM and Pandora (an advantage of US-based work servers). I probably listen to most of it through an internet radio, either stand-alone, or as part of a hi-fi setup.... so that's radio covered as well. Most of my music exists as physical CDs before I digitise it (or I buy a digital download as well, which I do for about half the CDs I own). Then I buy some digital downloads that aren't easily available in the UK (but admittedly fewer). I don't use video players for music, so that's a "no". Working out which is the main way has given me a headache. Time for some music. Reciva radio on at the moment, listening to ERT Trito at themo.
