@jgd: So should we expect a big comeback of tapes? They also have crappier sound, wear easily and make it really difficult for you to skip tracks. *unsure*
listen i am explaining why there is a resurgence of some sorts and the relevant reasoning behind it, no need to be cheeky. besides, tapes have practically no album art and were much less reliable than viynl. nobody ever got their record stuck in the record player, whereas tapes broke, and ****ed up your whole system.

I have only 20 records but I really love them. About once a month I put them on play a song here and there.. I love records.. and the sound like was said before is very crisp, and raw.

I have quite a bit of vinyl that has all been bought in the last few years. I love vinyl as a format but with certain records my vinyl copy is simply for collectable purposes. I still use vinyl as an extremely cheap method of picking up lots of albums but of course these really need to be albums of a certain age. I wouldnt buy too many new releases on vinyl, i would just get the CD.

For some of the stuff I've bought I've bought on vinyl to avoid any kind of remastering. Not an issue for a lot of stuff but for some of the stuff I've bought vinyl has been the only way to get the original master.

I dunno, it either seems like a sport of the well-off or the wannabes who want to appear cool by saying they listen to an "obscure" format...*shrug*
Pretty much all of the records I've bought used have been in pretty good condition, and I'd rather pay 3 dollars for an album I want to hear instead of buying it in CD format and spend nearly 15. I only have 4 or 5 records that weren't originally released on vinyl. I don't buy them for the 'cool' factor, I'm the only person who see's my collection anyways. In 20 years are we all going to question the motives of those who still buy CD's?

its the same reason people still use forums, even though it is an outdated form of technology; there is still use for it and people still like it.

basically, this online community epitomizes the changed attitudes and market shifts or whatever, and consequently the decline of the record industry and we are all going to Hades... unnerstan?

question: does the modern lightweight vinyl still warp like the old heavy stuff? My dad's record collection has spent years at a time packed tightly together in the loft where the dampness just does wonders for them. Cue ruination of the Clockwork Orange/Ghostbusters OST

ps cds rule

yes, chat rooms are better as far as technology goes. just as mp3s are better as far as technology goes than a vinyl, but plenty of people find that listening to an album all the way through on a vinyl similarly could be called a "better" way to enjoy the music.

Sound quality aswell obviously, when I d/l I try and get as close as possible to 320kbps as I can ever since I started noticing the blatant crappiness of standard 128kbps mp3s (like actually crackling on the lower frequencies)

i've rambled loads about how morally bankrupt kids are today if they dont have loads of hard copy music, and it's definitely all true
