does anyone really like vinyl anymore?
they still make it, even though nobody buys it except hipsters.
Seems to me like the actual "record" industry is losing money

I have a few (50-60) and I feel its more of an experience than picking up my ipod and listening to music.

There's a thread on vinyl here somewhere...


My college roommate had a computer program to add vinyl-like qualities to songs (warps, scratches, etc...) Twas pretty awesome...

^ I use a plugin for that when I produce tracks, especially when I sample an mp3. That way it sounds like my samples came from the original records (sometimes they do!).

Well, I listen to vinyl quite a bit. Sometimes I make mix tapes to cassette (best idea ever for my girlfriend's birthday) and stuff like that. The whole 'warm sound' thing is cool and all, but it's honestly not that noticeable (I also avoid low quality mp3s, so there isn't a huge sound change when I go to vinyl or cd).
It's definitely about the experience, though. Sitting around my living room with my room mates and listening to a record is a really interesting experience that a good portion of kids my age (20s) are missing out on.

I got my dad's old vinyl collection and record player a few months ago. I love it. I'm such a huge classic rock freak I treat all of his classic Queen, Pink Floyd, Beatles, etc albums like relics. There is definitely a huge difference in sound quality though. I heard things I had never heard on the CD or mp3 versions.

Vinyl > CD > MP3 > Tape

Not only does this have to do with sound quality, but with vinyl, you really have no choice but to really listen to the music. I DJ and work with vinyl/turntables all the time, and I can tell you that there is just no substitute. At all.

In what way?

I miss my collection Without trying to sound cliché, I really find listening to vinyl much more fun than CD's, the big artwork is a plus too.

I love my vinyls. I've got about 150 of them and my record player is one of my most treasured possesions. I buy new vinyl at every opportunity which means I usually buy three or four every month.

I like the idea of collecting old or rare albums though. But listening to vinyl is such an inconvenience compared to cds or mp3s.

Exactly. I like being able to have my entire music collection at the click of a button. So convenient.

I'm not saying I don't like vinyl. I just think it is overrated.

Yeah the sound is good and it has a special feel to it, but it isn't something I can't live without.

Wait. I've never actually listened to a vinyl album. But you say the sound is good? I can understand a special feel, but the sound? From what I've heard people talk about, theres all this sort of subtle static, and an airy sound in the album. The whole point of CD's was to make listening to music easier, with better sound quality, so you don't get all that shit in it that you did with vinyls, right?

I'm really not sure, but I've listened to vinyl edition songs on youtube, and there's always a "kssssshhhhhhhh" noise in there, which really pisses me off. I like the cleanliness of CD's and mp3s.

I understand, but I really like them. But this is coming from a person who is interested in buying a typewriter and likes old/antique things .

I've got a bunch and so does a friend of mine. We collected them for awhile. We've got original pressings of Hendrix, VH, Cream, etc. albums. I even bothered to buy Systematic Chaos (which I didn't really like in the first place) on vinyl. I've got probably around 100 while he's got atleast triple that. It wasn't really for the sound quality (which isn't all that noticeable except for the distortion aka warmness, which I don't much care for) but more for the ability to say we've got cool ****. I prefer my CDs for almost everything and my iPod comes behind that.
