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.

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!

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.

@Sir_Whatz 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... :)
