The Muthaship: DNRTFA, is the answer "It doesn't"?
NoiseGoth: Sort of amazed at the uninformed opinions stated as facts in this thread. The bottom line is that vinyl has the potential to have better frequency response and better dynamic range than traditional CDs (while CDs are better in the wow and flutter department, a good record player can effectively render this moot). Whether an individual release takes advantage of that potential is, of course, open to interpretation.I say whatever floats your boat. If I want to sit and listen to something I'll go for vinyl if I've got it, CD if not. Mp3s are good for background fill or the car or just when I'm not paying close attention, but that's just me. I don't get down on people listening to mp3s all the time. I do wish more people cared about fidelity (the loudness wars being a direct result of this lack of concern), but I really can't fault them for liking what they like.
doremifaq: Back to analogue vs digital: they sound different from each other. You can tell by listening. mp3 compression proves that the buying public just doesn't care.
grinding_journalist: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: This brings us to now. Much music is now produced in WMA, or other sampling formats. These are samples of samples, that only reproduce the most important sounds. Very clean, but is it what the artist intended?Extremely interesting, though it makes you seem like a bit of a snob.

The Angry Hand of God: I enjoy vinyl for one reason. The person playing the music has to be aware of what is playing, how long is left, etc. It requires more attention. There is nothing worse than going to a party where somebody plugs in there 5 billion song iPod and puts it on shuffle...
Pontious Pilates: Lando Lincoln: Pontious Pilates: I could definitely tell the difference.Yeah, me too. From all the popping and skipping of vinyl.Well, yeah, that's the biggest problem with vinyl. It's a fragile medium. But a pristine record played on decent equipment will outshine digital every time. Just not enough for people who don't give a shiat or know how to listen.
