>>61860867 Dude, give it up. You wankers have been at it for days. Vinyl Is 1000% superior to digital medium (if mastered and pressed properly using analog gear). Just because you're a broke NEET who can't even afford new shoelaces.....get a fucking job, loser. Vinyl Is actually the only means by which most underground artists are able to stay afloat, especially electronic artists.
For real though, I fucking hate the vinyl bubble and I want it to pls go. Admittedly I'm a part of it but it blows my mind how many lazy millennial retards are latching onto it for the sake of image and don't actually know what the fuck they're ever saying or doing.
Those who collect records, check out /r/vinyl if you feel like fighting the urge to quit this hobby forever. Knowing I share a common interest with people who say shit like "Grailing/crate digging is a drug!" and "Spinning this [Daft Punk's Random Access Memories] while the missus is out!" physically fucking pains me.
I keep reading people saying they can't wait for the 'bubble to burst' so they can start buying records for really cheap again etc. What will happen in reality is that the market would be filled with Crosley damaged Adelle, Ed Sheeran and dadrock reissues while serious collectors will continue collecting and all interesting records would maintain there value. New releases will stop being released on vinyl like the 2000s because it won't be worth it for them, or maybe they'll just transfer the CD master on to it and not give a fuck. Record shops would go out of business and shut down. Sounds pretty shit to me.
>>61861085 This is literally the draw of vinyl for me. Sifting through bargain bins for shit I've never heard before/shit I know I like for dirt cheap is awesome. I can plug my fucking mp3 player into my setup and listen to whatever I want through it, so it's not about le audiophile fidelity ;) and I agree with stuff like "I like big artwork" and "I like the ritual" and shit, but ultimately the draw is the ability to dig up obscure as fuck albums for like 50 cents per record and discover, discover, discover.
I'm not talented so I can't say I get the sampling thing, although I've always wanted to be Madlib tier and just have a room with thousands of records and regularly listen to them to find bits to sample.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but is there really any point to buying vinyl over FLAC versions of songs? And I mean in terms of quality, not reasons like "I like to have physical copies of the music I own."
After all, unless you're using a completely analog setup (like an old phonograph), there has to be some digital conversion to make it play through speakers that would make you lose quality from the analog recording of the vinyl. Wouldn't it be just the same to have FLAC recordings and it just stays digital the entire time?
Also, isn't quality on a vinyl only actually the highest only if everything is recorded analog as well (again, like an old phonograph)? Don't most music producers nowadays put together their music digitally, so the version that gets recorded onto the vinyl is exactly the same as the FLAC quality-wise?
Hi hipsters! I listen to music. You know, the sequences of unique conflagrations and configurations of different frequencies of sound vibrations that stimulate a part of my brain when they encounter my eardrum.
I don't understand the joy of watching a circular piece of plastic spin around on a table while a needle captures the unique vibrations trapped in grooves imprinted on the plastic, then the vibrations travel electrically through transistors and stuff and gets amplified and broadcast through speakers. Are you all engineers or something?
>>61860867 The most I've ever spent on a new LP is $16. Dont buy shit that costs more than that. It's almost always available for cheaper on cd.
>>61861459 This type of shit is hilarious. A large chunk of the top 10 selling vinyl releases from last year were represses of dad rock that was already filling bargain bins at record stores. But since so many people now on the vinyl bandwagon only go to Barnes & Nobles, Best Buy, Urban Outfitters, fucking Whole Foods, or other such big box places they have no idea.
>>61863653 4 years ago my local HMV didn't stock a single record, a few years ago they brought a small section, now literally half the music floor is covered in them. It's not that bad they stock some good new releases at decent prices
>>61863681 It already has, anon. The most popular country is just pop music with fake southern accents. NPR approved "real country" revival stuff like Jason Isbel, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, etc is true to form but will never knock the domination of shit that fills country airways off. It's for a niche of old people and hipsters who are too cool to like Blake Shelton or Jason Aldean.
where? even the black one was £25 on his page and online stores. Even though I like Bowie there was no way I was paying that much, and now I'm kicking myself, idiots were buying the clear version on ebay for £300+
>>61862526 CDs are okay in that you have a perfect hard copy you can rip as many times as you want but damn, if you have a lot then that's a lot of ripping and a lot of space they take up. I have about 5000 cds from before digital really took off and vinyl made a resurgence and I really don't want to get rid of them as that would be a pain in the arse in itself.
