I like getting up and deciding hat to play next.
Sonny or Cher?
Turning the record over is inevitable, but enjoying vinyl is... you /don't/ get up and change tracks, change records, etc. You just sit and listen.
But... You /can/ do if you want. You can even play the same track over and over. IF you have a steady hand it's no harder than clicking a mouse :)
Getting up is a ritual that is good for the days I am feeling sharp. On days when I am exhausted and would like to lie down and listen to music, I guess digital it is. But yes I do feel sometimes the vinyl would change itself. Spoiled by today's software.
I think I overly conscious of the stylus more than anything else.
I don't use a deck any more but... whether it is audiophile or not, I would /always/ have gone with semi-automatic, ie the stylus is lifted at the end. Sometimes one wants to drift off and dream, not click...click...click worry about the stylus
