Ok, so I'm reading that many of our users lives Vinyls. I do not own one Vinyl but tell us what about vinyls you love. Just the classic retro look of a vinyl? Or the sound from it? Or the cover or booklet?

And a general question, how does the sound quality compare from a vinyl to a CD?

I've actually watched a couple of videos on YT regarding the differences on their sound qualities, and I think it's fully subjective. Some people say, due to the resurgence of vinyls, that they sound superior to CD's. But still, many believe otherwise. I can only speak about the CD's as I never had a record player.

I think this is a pretty informative video regarding the topic:



But I'm happy that vinyls are making a big comeback. Especially in this day and age where even CD's are already considered a thing of the past, due to digital downloads and music streaming which were the number one culprits of the decline of physical albums.
