mmmh, not necessarily. I've always found (especially on vinyl that was mastered and produced ect on all-analogue equipment) that vinyl sounds a lot more natural in terms of sound. Personally crackle is something I try to reduce, by the way.
I suppose you have a bit of a point about it becoming trendy, frankly that's hard to deny - but trust me, there are myriad other reasons why people still buy vinyl apart from trendiness/nostalgia.
(As a really good example of the difference in sound/mastering quality, I suggest listening to a pre-80's album on vinyl, then on a recent CD remaster)
Compared to digital I hear a major difference in audio quality in vinyl and I'm a person who tends to not really pay attention, notice, or really care about audio quality.
I quite care about sound quality and I notice a big difference.
However a few of my mates have record players too but have them hooked up to things like guitar amps and then I think there's no point in bothering with vinyl. I actually find it hard to listen to, especially if I take some music round theirs that I've already listened to. It sounds really snobby and it kind of is.
Just ordered this on 180 gram vinyl. It should come in tomorrow.
fuckin white stripes mang
I'm ready for a new vinyl. Thinking about Sublime or System of a Down, what do you guys think? I really need 40oz to Freedom Robbin' the Hood, and Second Hand Smoke; but I dont have ANY system vinyl so tough call.
Edit: oh man, all of these are at least 40$.
I like SOAD because they're funny. But I think Sublime and SOAD are two of the most juvenile bands ever. I don't really see a point in owning SOAD on Vinyl. I can kind of understand Sublime, but not SOAD.
people nowadays have a weird obsession with days gone by and all the old fashion out-moded ways. especially things that carry this sort of "authenticity" or "classic" aura. my second hand copy of Blue has someone's name written on it and seeing that mark of the previous owner makes me happy for some reason. I think it's kind of interesting to think of, and I try to go further than saying "lol hipsters"
i think lol hipsters when people buy lots of records but don't actually listen to them.
There's no point in buying them if you're not going to bother listening to them
well turntables are pretty much at "perfect" level of playing the format. now with laser turntables and all.
laser turnatbles are a needless expense unless you really do own loads of fragile old shellac records though. The damage incurred from a well-balanced and adjusted tonearm with a decent stylus is negligable (unless you're playing eighty year old 78's as i said)
This just came in
theres 4 more EPs coming from the UK but havent been delivered yet for months :(((
What's your favourite White Stripes album btw?
The sleeve is very nice too, pretty thick cardboard.
Get this on vinyl, man. Is nice. :3
Is it me or does Best Buy's website have a bunch of really excellent deals on vinyl
I don't normally care unless they're being badly stored.
Pre-ordered the new OFF! LP, comes out in a month or 2.
