There are so many ways get music now, and I'm wondering what options consumers like/want when they come across independent artists/albums. Consider you come across an album that you like, what are you willing to spend on, and what format do you prefer? Here are some options. Please post with any alternatives that you prefer. I also have some other questions that will help me get an idea on what is best and what people are looking for. Please answer as a consumer, not thinking what would be best for the artist or how to make more money. Just answer what you would prefer. Option 1: Cheap Digital Download - Free or Name your price CD - $5 shipped, and very minimal (simple 1 sleeve) Vinyl - $12 shipped, (simple 1 sleeve) Option 2: Expensive Digital Download - $3-5 with extra artwork and depth liner notes in a pdf CD - $10 shipped, nicer creative design Vinyl - $18 shipped, nicer creative design Option 3: All of the above as options. Related questions: Basically... do you just want the music as cheap as possible, or do you like buying a package with something creative? Do you care about CDs/Vinyl at all? How likely are you to pay $3 for an independent digital album vs for free? When an album is name your price, how often would you pay money?
