[lastfm]Justin Timberlake[/lastfm] says he thinks vinyl records sound better than digitalized tunes.

The 29-year-old pop musician and actor told German newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau on Thursday that he loves putting on records featuring oldies from the Beach Boys and early Beatles, claiming they “sound warmer” and “more vintage” than digital versions.

Still, the singer acknowledges that MP3 files are handy for selling his own songs online.

Timberlake currently stars as Napster founder Sean Parker in “The Social Network,” a biopic about Facebook creator Mark Zuckerburg. Napster clashed with the music industry over illegal sharing of music files. But Timberlake expressed sympathy for his character, saying he believes Parker really didn’t harm the record labels.
