I was thinking about something. Do bands today make vinyls any more? Where can you buy them? I recently went to my uncle's house and he had a 1975 vinyl player and he put on axis bold as love... and I must say wow... just wow... That rich, saturated sound that came out from those speakers was amazing. I own the mp3 version and it falls short. Does anyone know where they sell vinyls that are as close as the original records, none of this remastered(louder the better) type deal.

BTW I don't want to start a vs thread ok...

well since you live in pomona you can go to amoeba records in LA. i go to antique shops where i know they have some. also swapmeets are pretty good but you have to be pretty committed to lookin but you can find gems for pretty cheap

EDIT: if youre only lookin for new vinyls then just go to amoeba records

I'm wondering if the new vinyls will sound different than the original vinyls that came out way back in the day (when the album originally came out)

I saw vinyls at (flamesheild) Hot Topic. But it was old stuff like Kill Em' All and Appetite for Destruction

Please note that the mastering techniques used in the past 20 years have been tailored to CD quality, and due to limitations in the medium itself (for example, no panned bass frequencies) some modern bands will sound like shit on vinyl, depending on how good the vinyl mastering is.

But you can buy them at any independent record store, yes they're still released all the time, and no the quality is not always better, the fluctuating tempo (and likewise, pitch) that is inherent in the mechanics of a turntable give it the "warm" quality people associate (nostalgically) with "good sound quality". Of course they'll sound better than a 128kbps mp3, but full-on CD quality pretty much rivals or surpasses most vinyl (although records can be very good quality depending on what they're pressed on and how good the mastering is - AFX's "Analord" vinyl-only series of EPs = eargasm)

New vinyls will not sound any better than modern CDs, as they are recorded digitally and then compied to vinyl. Original vinyls were recorded on tape, and thus were not compressed nearly as much.

EDIT: As for finding them, I'd keep my eyes peeled for garage sales. I've also come across them on ebay, craigslist, garage sales, and antique stores.

Sometimes it's just the nostalgia factor that matters.

I have a question, a very dumb one, but that's what I'm here for. I wan't to start buying vinyls because I think they are great, but if I wanted to burn them on a cd or put the music on my ipod how would I do that?

There's already a good sized thread devoted to vinyls here.

I don't think this one is necessary.
