jake_lex: It's been my experience that "audiophiles" just listen to music so that they can tell you what's wrong with the stereo playing it.

There is a saying : People listen to music, audiophiles listen to the stereo.

bunner: nekom: lol, tangible media. How quaint.

Yeah, I mean who wants to cop to "z0mg teh oldz0rs!1" when it's easier to act like the tail wagging the dog is the One True Way™ : )

Buy what you like and why, folks. But if you have to sit and argue two decimal places of noise floor per medium like somebody just peed on your shoe, you probably don't give a sh*t about music anyhoo. And, yeah, that's... nice.

FeedTheCollapse: I think there's valid reasons to prefer books over Kindles (I would say yours is valid, even if I don't think it's correct), but stupid shiat like "I like how books smell" is just silly and doesn't really argue on any kind of technical level. I feel the same way about quite a lot of vinyl enthusiasts.

Perhaps, but the ostensibly unimpeachable technocracy was founded by people who read a lot of books and if reading is a pleasure, I find no fault in whatever peripheral enjoyment may be derived by the people who use them. It requires, in my humble opinion, no argument, no defense and certainly no justification on a "technical" level. That notion, to me, seems equally as silly as "I like how books smell".

I don't like kindles or e-books as much as books because screens have a reflective surface, paper doesn't, the text and graphics are absolutely static and less fatiguing and I like being able to just toss a bevnap in the pages where I left off and pick it up later. That's what I'm comfortable with. And the notion that NEW! is always THE ONE TRUE WAY NOW™ seems a bit silly to me.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: old school Motown vinyl that cost me a dime gives a dinner party way better ambiance than the iPod.

Love him or hate him for his business practices, Berry Gordy invented the modern day indie label template. Kept it in house, had staff writers, musicians, engineers, and did weekly focus group meetings where the song had to pass the sammich test. And he berthed life into the top 40 and brought more musical diversity to the public and radio than ANYbody else EVER did. Loves me some Motown / Tamla / Gordy / Stax / Volt. That's where I grew up. And it's still as good as it ever was because because can do that. Ask Beethoven.

FirstNationalBastard: Wasilla Hillbilly: I miss the warmth of analog video

Yeah, and the pops and crackles from when the tape got eaten by the VCR and you had to take it apart and try to smooth out the tape...


The good old days.

Great now I really do miss the good old days. My cassette tapes went through much abuse and repair. Oohh..remember when people would get pissed and throw their 8-track out the window leaving long streams of black tape along the roadside?

Farking kids and their general disrespect of lawns...

/Vinyl is the superior medium if you want to really hear the music
//Obviously the least convenient
///I still buy vinyl on occasion

Actually, doesn't Vinyl kind of obscure the music since you're hearing the white noise created by the equipment and the stylus cutting into the vinyl interfering with the playback?

Digital really is cleaner, and a more accurate representation of music than vinyl.

nursedude: Sorry, I'll be going to the 8 track emporium and then the hula hoop outlet store. Hope the crowds aren't too rowdy.

Sure, if you want crap.

Everyone knows the Edison wax cylinder store is where you get real music at.
