It never went away. Just fell out of favor.Vinyl returned years ago. Anyone who wants to jump on the bandwagon today is going to be stunned by prices and general lack of availability.
I kind of, sort of, agree that it never went away -- because audiophiles never abandoned vinyl. They also didn't abandon magnetic tape, which is what audiophiles really want, if they have unlimited funds.It never went away. Just fell out of favor.
Personally I just don't get it. With YouTube and other platforms all you need to do is snap your fingers and any song will become instantly available.
Uh-oh! Some vinyl is being sourced from digital. Egads!
Sigh. I'm not going to get into an analog vs. digital debate. There's no point. It's like talking politics.
But I can pull out a 15ips magnetic tape release of a title. I can pull out a 45RPM recent pressing of that same title. And I can pull out a SACD as well. And I can queue them up to play at the same time. And then flip back and forth between them. Only the profoundly hearing impaired aren't going to hear a difference.
Preference is then a matter of debate. But there is a difference.
I prefer chromium dioxide.OK ... enjoy your old plastic analogs
