Before getting to the meat and bones of the topic, I must first explain that, by vinyl, I mean records, the things you put on turntables, and delicately position your stylus weilding tone arm over. It's pretty obvious that the download generation has been hitting the music industry hard, with CD sales being hit hardest. Why buy a CD when you can download and burn it yourself right? I was listening to the radio this week, and some old codger was trying to demonstrate that vinyl sounded better than cd. (The very fact he was trying to do this on FM radio and using a recording made in the 60's, blew his credibility for me) The idea is, that the industry is trying to persuade people to go back to vinyl, saying it sounds better. Am I being cynical for suggesting it's because you can't download and press vinyl in your own home? Anybody else think vinyl sounds better than cd? Thoughts? P.S. please have good reasons, as audio is my field.
