Even though I like vinyl, I think that it's a crock to say that the sound quality is better than that of a cd. Maybe vinyls made these days ARE better, but to say that a vinyl made in the '70s or earlier is better is delusional, and this is coming from an audiophile.

Oh, its prooved that vinyls are better that the cds, im not saying by me, IT'S A FACT.

How much did you read? The opinions seem split down the middle, with many of them giving pros and cons for both formats.

I don't really trust the whole ebay thing... I've had some back experiences with buying stuff online... but maybe I should just get over that. And it doesn't have to be portable, having to hook it up to speakers is fine, I have some nice ones at home... so no problem. thanks.

I have to say that I love Jason Webley and his recent multicolored- vinyl singles.

Recent soon-to-arrive acquisitions.

The Legendary Pink Dots - Alchemical Playschool 2x10". (An excursion to opium dens in South Asia. A weird album, even by LPD standards! It's good, though.)
Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero 2xLP. ($40!!! Granted, the package will be bad-ass, but I'm halfway to e-mailing Trent and demanding it be signed.)

I don't think Vinyl is better or worse.

You have to keep in mind that not all pressings are good. Most records after 1985 were plastic, not vinyl(and there is a huge difference).

A record that is well cared for and played on a good player that has a fresh needle should reveal almost no surface noise. You must also keep the surface clean and static clean. Sure it is a lot of work, but it does make you value music more.

An mp3 is disposable and worth nothing to the "owner". A CD can be treasured, but with the tiny artwork and stupid jewel case, it can't compare to the value of a good record with bad-ass artwork.

Yet CDs hold their tone until they die. Records wear down faster. That is why people used to tape their records, and listen to the tapes instead. They could keep their vinyl fresh. When the tape breaks or wears out, you just record it again. Now you can burn them to CDs. Even better.

I still listen to tapes, records and i even still have a Laser Disc video player. Yet I love my cds as well.

so... I finally bought a kickass record player (it's red, and shiny, and I love it) and bought a bunch (well, 7) of old records at a second hand store (1€/piece, whoo) and now I'm listening to them in my room, together with my mom, cause it's the music she listened to when she was young.


EDIT: does anyone know any good ways of cleaning vinyl? I used one of those cloths for glasses, but that just moves the dust to another part of the disc. (and these things are VERY dusty)

Only use the real stuff.

We were too far ahead of the curve.  People didn't realize how cool vinyl was again yet.

I started collecting vinyl in 2017, because I couldn't find a digital copy of Tribe 8's "Pig Bitch" EP.

Just last week I was browsing in a used record store and found a limited pressing of Child Birth's album "Women's Rights" on bright yellow vinyl. I also found Belly's "King" which was funny because earlier that day I had pre-ordered their upcoming album "Dove"

I currently have 3 vinyls at home and only half of one of them is mine. I really want to buy a vinyl but I feel this weird pressure - I feel like it has to be some really great album, I cannot buy some random thing I like. I don't know why but I see buying a vinyl as a huge commitment.
