I use mostly digital today, but analog sound has got special character.
I would welcome if the new albums are also released on cassettes, not only vinyl. Vinyl has less durability when playing and you cannot use vinyl to do your own analog recordings.
Some of the older tapes will shed more oxide when playing, those you can either throw away (if nothing valuable is there), or digitize them and keep them just for a memory.
Those you want to keep playing in analog format you can make a copy on good dual tape deck onto new tape (Recording the Masters [store.recordingthemasters.com
], or Maxell UR 90). Then use the copies regularly and the original only on special occasions :-)
