    That is my fond memory--the ritual. But I don't have that kind of free time anymore and mostly listen on MP3 or in the car, so vinyl is near useless for me.

    Oh that is sad. What a sham.

    Old vinyl is best but I don't see any problem with vinyl from a dig file- the problem with digital particularly CD is the quality or lack there of in most CD players. I would prefer my vinyl to come from original masters tapes but given there limited life/ age, converting them to dig makes sense.

    Is that so strange?

    It seems more than passing strange to me! But there's always a market for snake oil.

    Vinyl proponents argue that digital is inherently flawed, that a digital wave form subtracts some of the information contained in the analog wave form, and thus the so called inferiority of digital vs vinyl. By using digital files, to produce lps, then they invalidate the argument

    The Nyquist theory invalidates it anyway. People like vinyl because of the physical object and ritual involved with playing it. Sound isn't the attraction.

    I am totally ok with people liking or preferring vinyl for extra musical reasons. I temporarily got back into collecting lps for those same reasons. What drives me bonkers is the notion, currently accepted as a near default position, that vinyl sounds better. Clearly, if the lps commanding ridiculous prices are being produced from digital files, then what people perceive as better sound are the artifacts of lp playback--the stylus hitting the record, the pops, clicks, dust bunnies between the needle and the petroleum--and not some superior wave form reproduction

    Vinyl sold 3.2 million copy's last year in the U.K alone, heading by Bowie an( new release ) and Purple Rain.
    Most of them are re-releases I might add.

    Recently dead artists are most popular on recently dead formats.

    And I wonder if any of them realize that they are listening to digital files extracted from a slab of petroleum by an expensive sewing needle
