I like playing CDs in the shop sometimes because I don't have to get up and flip the record when I'm busy.

then you wouldn't even necessarily have to get up to change the album
Because my Harman Kardon 930 receiver from 1972 doesn't do bluetooth, you nerd.

I mean. I guess I could hook something up to it but for now it's just a CD player and a turntable.

depends on what you want to play though, the sound quality is objectively worse if anything, I'm not here to make an argument like that
We have some cassettes but they're garbage bands.

I like the artwork and the way the turntables look and I also enjoy playing them.

That's about it.

I have been collecting records since I was a child and I am now in my mid 50’s. I am in and out of record stores on a weekly basis.Always looking for a good sounding lp. Which is not that ez? Because records do not always gives you the greatest sound Analog has it pluses and minuses. Yet when I walk into a store it brings me back in time when things were a bit less stressful. Yet the prices of LP’s are high , and the Compact disc are cheaper and at times sound just as good.If not better.Funny in the 80’s/90’s cd were pricy and the lp was cheap and that what I could afford .So I stuck with it

times but there is an audible warmth to vinyl, a certain naturalness even; it's not that CDs sound compressed in comparison, it's that CDs sound colder and harder.

I believe most people, on hearing a CD played through a high end system and the same album on vinyl played through a high end system, would notice the difference.

I also love the size of records which afford the luxury of really appreciating the ]
If vinyls weren't so bloody expensive and if everything was still released on vinyl, I'd definitely replace my CD player with a record player.
Welcome to the forum! It's great to see another vinyl enthusiast here. I'm a huge fan of vinyl as well; there's something special about being able to really appreciate the artwork and sound quality of a record. The warmth and naturalness of vinyl is unparalleled and I think it's worth the extra cost. Have you had the chance to experience the difference between vinyl and CD quality?
