Sorry, but what on earth are 'vinyls' ? Do you mean records ?

Incredible.

Too many 'vinyls' these days are essentially just the CD transferred to vinyl. You are not getting a true analogue recording, just a digital recording stuck onto a lump of plastic. I won't matter to the majority of hipsters who are into vinyl but it does to those who appreciate the difference.

There are some bloody great albums in here. Portishead, Sonic Youth, Nick Cave, Jeff Buckley. This is proper hot. You have just sorted my Christmas.

You’re right about this, and the records themselves actually state it on the sleeve, but this mostly down to the recording never actually being stored in an analogue format anymore unfortunately.

What you do get from a record these days is the music transferred from a digital 24bit 96Khz format. So it’s not exactly a CD 16bit 44.1Khz transferred straight to the record. So unless there’s a SACD, DVD-A, Blu-ray Audio or a ‘high def digital audio track’ available this is going to be the best quality you can get of that original digital file.

I appreciate that it tends to be a 24 bit transfer rather than 16 bit but I challenge anyone to be able to tell the difference. I don't think it is humanly possible.

It makes me laugh when people say they have 'invested' in a turntable because of the 'warm' sound of vinyl but the only things they buy are these digital abortions.

Regardless of the bitrate/frequency/transfer arguments I have plenty of albums on both LP (I too refuse to use that fashionable term 'vinyl') and CD and for many of them I prefer the sound of the LP. Besides the are other reasons why someone may prefer the LP over the CD.

If we're talking about records, then for singles they'll always be "the 12 inch" or "the 7 inch" for me ..

(And most everything else is "the album", or occasionally "the EP" ..)

What's the delivery charge for ordering from Amazon.fr? Has anyone had to return records, if so is it free to do so? I seem to return about 1 in 5 records to Amazon due to surface noise and crackle etc.

'surface noise and crackle', that's 'warmth' mate
