    The only good thing about vinyl was the psychedelic artwork- or hot chicks topless or close to
    (my father had this album and I'm sure I whacked it to it at least once, but I can't recall specifically)

    I disagree...any audiophile will tell you that vinyl that is taken care of, sounds much better than CD, MP3 or any other format. Much warmer, much more full. If all you care about is background sound, then who cares? But if you want great sound, vinyl was king. PLUS you had the big record jacket and some old classic gatefold covers. I spent a large chunk of my youth sitting with the big headphones on, studying every inch of the record jacket as I listened.

    I know they sound better, but I can't handle the clutter- I love having everything in my iTunes library, then I can create playlists for my iPod Touch, burn CD's for the car...it's cool to see vinyl making a comeback though...

    I agree with the portabilty. I've converted a lot of my library to my PC, including some of my fave vinyl, since I bought a USB turntable. I have close to 2000 albums, and one thing Itunes and new technolgy has done is make it portable. Itunes has been a great source of finding old albums and buying them cheaply. A while back I grabbed John Phillips "Wolf King of L.A."...try finding that on vinyl for a decent price. I paid $8

    maybe on pro equipment they sound better, but in reality they dont.
    and even if it did sound slightly better in certain instances, its not worth the hassle.

    anyways, people want them because they think its cool, not because they are looking for better sound

    I was listening to shuffle and heard a clip from around 2000? where Gary uses the term "pieces of vinyl" and Howie did not question the phrase then.:dontknow:

    I'd you're a wealthy music hobbyist like Gary, buying vinyl makes perfect sense. If you're living on 25k a year, the marginal sound enhancement isn't worth the additional expense.

    Really, this is Howard's defensiveness about his faggoty photography despite working in an environment where no one is permitted to bust his balls about it.

    Depends on how much you value the true sound of music, I guess. If you already built up a large portion of your collection before the CD age, then it makes perfect sense. I can play you my copy of Zeppelin IV on vinyl and cd, and you can hear a huge difference.

    Problem with new releases on vinyl today is the price. Way too expensive unless you have a ton of disposible income.

    come on, i value the sound of music.
    they would take up a whole room in my house though. i guess if i had howards house that wouldnt matter, but i dont.
    and when i stay at my gfs im supposed to rent a U haul? what about in my car?
    i wont dispute your zep 4 argument, but i also know theres millions of vinyl that sound much worse than what i have

    Yeah, but an .mp3, m4a or any of those formats that are used/required by Apple are like comparing a stomped-down jpeg to a 50 MB tif file.

    It tosses out sound the way of gif file tosses out colors.

    Remember when cds first came out and they were way more expensive than vinyl? The great Steve Albini termed them "Rich Man's Eight Track." Now the vinyl is way more expensive than cds. The quality of vinyl is better though now than back when.

    If we're getting down to brass tax, SACD's and DVD-A's are the best quality available, and blow away vinyl and CDs. The problem is they didn't come around until the original iPod craze, and were never really adopted. The only new releases on them are mainly classical music, and it sucks, but at least I got my Electric Warrior SACD while they were in print.

    Howard has never been on what's happening or hip with anything. Music lovers always want vinyl. Many artists are putting out vinyl now as well as physical CDs and digital.

    Yeah, it makes me laugh. I was in college when CDs first were mass produced. An album cost about $7.99 while the cd cost $20-25+. Vinyl got phased out so quickly, I had to go to casettes for a bit, because as a student, I couldn't afford cds. Now the cd is about $12 and vinyl can run you $30+

    Theyre way more desperate for material now
