Vinyl

Anybody here still spinning it?



I never parted with mine. 200+ albums. Some of them survived their life in the box, some didn't.

I've had a heck of a good time adding to my collection though.

This is a mofi (Mobile Fidelity) 180 gram pressing. Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab Inc.| Audiophile Vinyl, CD, SACD

Still working on my system. Next upgrade will be the turntable.

Yeah I bought an old kenwood turntable a few years ago. Been meaning to upgrade the needle and cartridge, but at the moment I enjoy playing second hand vinyl that I buy for $1 a piece. I do have some DJ Shadow and Radiohead I bought brand new, and it sounds real nice...

All the modern technological innovations and yet 180g vinyl records are still the best. Digital just cant replicate the warmth of analog recordings.

Agreed of course.

It is not entirely the digital mediums 'fault' though.

Digital medium, plus all the latest 'technological' advances just allows humans to totally fuck up the ART of recording music in the quest for LOUDNESS.

Here's a very cool YT video series on the subject.

Bob Katz about the "loudness war"

Part 1


Part 2


Part3


I think it's worth the watch/listen. The increase in gain smashed into current recorded music vs. what it used to be is astonishing.

I love vinyl. Have tons of old house and dnb on vinyl in the garage. I also have a 10000 watt PA system. Nothing sounds more warm those big ass dual 18's than vinyl.

Yup yup! I've got a pair of 18s driven by a Yamaha P4500, and 15" mains with horns driven by Behringer A500's (1 ea). Although my turntable sits in a closet beside the system, and it's not nearly soundproof enough to be able to turn it up while using the table.

Listen to records every week. From Lawrence Welk to Venom. Vinyl has a soul. Some of my best memories were hanging with my dad on Sunday's listening to records. Have a couple hundred records and always adding. Love yard sale and thrift shop finds.

One awesome thing is some smaller record companies are selling vinyl and including downloads for the digital versions, which is a pretty awesome idea.
