A mere 5 blocks from my home: Village Vinyl in Etobicoke
Superb selection of rare and hard to find '60s and '70s vinyl. Loyalty programme offering up to 20% discounts on vinyl and CDs. Vinyl washing available at $1.00 per disc. Excellent selection of superb coffee. Live entertainment every Sunday afternoon from 1430 to 1700 hours. Need I say more?

CAM member Alberta Vern for the same reasons as above but sans loyalty programme. The coffee would not survive the voyage. :D

Independent stuff: Bandcamp because it gives me that warm fuzzy feeling that the artist is actually seeing alot of that money.

Mainstream: Private sites

Bootlegs, recording sessions, master tape transfers, complete scores: Trading / industry folk.

I live a long way from the nearest record shop so I buy most music online. http://www.Murfie.com has super low prices in classical, with most at $3.00 or less and you can download full resolution FLAC files as well as request physical delivery. I've been selling and trading my CDs at Murfie too.

95% physical media - 65% Amazon, 30% Ditch and the Turntable, 5% direct from the artist at their show.
5% downloads - direct from Artists, usually for European stuff where the shipping is pricey.

I'd probably get more stuff from the B&M shops, but I don't get into Victoria that often.

Hi Rez downloads - Acoustic Sounds, Prostudiomasters, etc.

-- 11 May 2015 20:13 --

For CD quality, I borrow from my local library.

Of course it is your money, but don't you find the prices of hi-rez downloads to be unreasonably high?

I buy a lot (compared to my budget) of my music from ePay and Yahoo Japan. I also buy my multichannel music in physical form online from the likes of Amazon, ImportCD's and Burning Shed. I do support my local shop but they don't stock multichannel discs and their prices are significantly higher than Amazon. I also buy on RSD at my local shop, but find they don't get all of the titles I am looking for most of the time. I also frequent another local record store, but they only sell used, so I don't know if that counts here. I did buy two LP's and a CD at my local shop today. :D

I "sample" my music through Spotify, the free version. If I find a real gem, I look-up for the LP record, if unavailable, then a high-rez download, if unavailable then the CD.
