Thinking about throwing out your old vinyl collection... think again. Vinyl is coming back in a big way. Retro is in. With vinyl sales rising most artist not only offer you their music on vinyl they give you a download code to digitally download the record you just bought or the cd version along with the record. I have been collecting vinyl for years and I am both happy and sad at the reemergence. Now prices are going up for used vinyl and the rare stuff is becoming even rarer. More and more DJ's are coming back in contact with their vinyl roots. Dare I say an "avant guard".

whats the point..?

yer fighting time..

no need keeping and storing an out of date.. medium..

you ever thing HD-DVDs will come back.. because blu-ray isnt cool?

nay..

everything is gonna go digital distro.. sooner or later Smile

i understand people and collecting things of value because of rarity.. but once you have the sound off the vinyl.. why keep it:?


of course its all matter of prospective and, taste.. in the end tho.

rather than becoming a collector of things.. you become part of the collection you keep..

yes vanguard your wax! (especially the good stuff)

from my continuing adventures in the world of music...
I've learned about the true difference from analog and digital sound.
Basically in a nut shell... all original sound is analog.
Yet a digital recording just takes a snapshot of the analog signal
at a certain rate. Which means, through the conversion
the original analog sound wave is not being completely captured,
just most of it.

Now to the untrained ear, you may not be able to tell the difference.
but to an Audiophile... (( d^,^b )) your ears will be more stimulated.

Though wax, vinyl, records, 45's are considered obsolete and
outdated to the 'download it generation' ... they will continue to
be a preference to those who would rather hear the full body
and subtle imperfections in the original recordings of those artists
who didn't have the luxury of saying
"ok we messed up... let's do another take"
no studio tricks, just hours and hours of rehearsal to perfect
the song... and when it was time to record...
it was SHOW TIME! as if the performer(s) screwed up
it was either out of their pay or the record label had to pay for it.

some times the mistakes weren't so noticeable and the artist
had no choice but to release a not so perfect recording.

Otis Redding's - Tramp is a perfect example.
you can here that his band did a change up too early
or he did his vocal too late.

just to have the record, the sleeve,
and the album cover, that snapshot in time of your favorite
artist(s) has a certain value to me.

It's all about preference, do you prefer a Big Mac or a Whopper. Do you prefer analog or digital. I like both but I prefer analog. I also like the subtle sounds vinyl makes especially when it's really used (the hisses and pops). I think vinyl still has a long way to go and with die hards like me around they will still be making it for years to come.

I prefer digital. The audio is good enough quality for me, especially if it is ripped at 320 kbps. Storing music on a digital medium is so much more convenient for me. I can store thousands of songs on a device the size of a credit card and listen to them where ever I am, or just keep all of it stored on you hard drive and save all the space that the vinyls would occupy. But that is just me, plus I'm not the largest music fan, I really enjoy listening to music but the quality is not the most important feature.

However, you could sell a decent vinyl collection for quite a bit I'm guessing if they are becoming more popular again.
