I have a decent collection of vinyl. I'm a newcomer to it, since I'm 19 and obviously didn't grow up with it, but I love the sound, and it's become a hobby of mine :)
I've heard some older, die-hards say on several occasions over the years that vinyl still produces the best replay sound quality as opposed to other mediums.
You're a younger person-- what say you? Is it even possible that vinyl reproduces a recording better than say, an MP3 player or some other digital medium?
With the right equipment and a good recording, yes, I do think there is more detail in a vinyl recording than a digital recording. It has a lot more room for imperfections, like cracks and pops, distortion...a worn record won't sound as good as a new record, cartridge has to be aligned properly, record has to be clean...but there is something magical about a vinyl recording that just isn't there in a digital one. :)
I have about 500 GB of stuff, some of which are converted from vinyls. Mostly MP3/FLAC on my external drive.
In my Music Folder, I have 22.7 Gigs, but I wonder how much I have saved in Spotify... gunna be well over that if I downloaded all the songs in my playlists or songs I saved there hehe. XP
That's a LOT of music. I checked and I have 211 gig and its 48,000 songs. Hell, I only know all the words to 5 songs. They were available for DL in Iraq so I just filled up some USB drives. Don't even know 90% of what I have. I do have 3 terabytes of movies though. <s>
Don't have vinyl sadly nor a turntable! But one of these days I'll get one, there's some great USB turntables to look into. Lots of 80s/90s Trance is great on vinyl as well. Discogs.com is the place to go for vinyls as well.
I have a small collection on vinyl, too. I still love listening to the hissing and popping on every song.
I still have about 50 old albums. I transered all the muic to digital though. Sometime I should probably pass the vinal off to someone who would apprieciate them more than I ever will again.
All the vinyl I bought before 1986 I still have and I bought a new turntable to play it
I still have a turntable, but my wonderful old records all went missing during a move many years ago. I really miss my collection, especially the 45's!
OH that is sad. Moving always makes for trouble, I moved 3 times in one year it was awful and every time something got lost or broken.
I still have most of my vinyl albums, and even the little book with sleeves, that holds the 45's I acquired when I was very young. I have a turntable also, but the sound quality of it is not great....and I've wondered if getting a different needle for it would help that. The turntable is nothing close to the ones I've had in the past.
I do still play them sometimes though, the old records.
Are we talking Elvis Presley old or Bing Crosby old? lol
No...can't that I've ever owned an Elvis Presley or Bing Crosby album, myself. Just for you though...I'll share a song on one of the 45's I still have in that little book with sleeves... :)
i remember hearing that
Do they even make a turntable that will play 78s?
Mine has the ability to play them ... if only I still had some!
45 vynyl wow I remember those from when I was a kid. my parant's and grandmom had those and let me have them to keep me amused.
I went through the vinyl stage, the 8 track stage, the cassette stage, and the CD stage. I'm not a saver of stuff so now I just update my play list on occasion and that's it. :)
yes a radio shack radio casets turntable 8 track brocken. I have all my old albums. hey wasn't this question a few months ago?
