​I have but its for on the go, when I have downtime at home I much prefer to listen to Vinyl

The majority are the same price on amazon in case anyone prefers them

there was a time when people wouldn't look twice at vinyl's, funny how things change and funny how price's change.

Economies of scale. They used to press them in the millions and now it's a few thousand.

Yes, perfect on my iPod, not some ancient method of scratching a disk to make a sound. Caveman.

Put it this way, if you tore up the Mona Lisa into a million pieces and then stuck it back together again would it still look the same ? If you think your iPod sounds better then that's all that matters - on the other hand true audiophiles know better

I can remember when they were this price around 10 years ago and the joys of walking in to a record store with £30 in your pocket and walking out with a couple LP's a bunch of 7" singles maybe some 10" too and change

Also the wonderful artwork which you can actually appreciate on a vinyl release.

Oh dear.

Nothing good.

Nothing good.



Yes because 'Hunky Dory', 'Meat is Murder', 'In Utero' and 'It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back' are such terrible albums.
Thanks for the input though.

Cheers OP, will pick nip into town at the weekend and pick up a couple - buying vinyl online just seems wrong!

​Actually most of these are overpriced re releases that are probably the same sound quality as wav files

It's a load of **** that vinyl sounds better, it's famous 'warmth' is simply missing high end frequencies. The only reason its so easy to pick out in double blind tests is because the crackles give it away.

These are probably 1mm thick cheap **** represses as well.

Weren't these tunes recorded onto mixing desks etc then put on vinyl so vinyl is not the original recording but a way of 'displaying' it. Is this analogous to comparing photographs printed using an old printer on A4 and displaying them on a HD screen.
And if you could tear up the Mona Lisa losslessly yes you could reassemble it.

Plus, I've moved my music collection to cassettes as I've heard that that's the future!

It's "warmth" comes from the fact that it carries all of the information that most digital formats do not as they can not support the bandwidths. Even CD is compressed audio and obviously mp3 etc even more so. It is estimated that there is 12 times more information on a vinyl pressing that there is on a CD. A friend of mine has a ridiculous system (that I could only dream of) which includes a £20,000 turntable (Avid Acutus Reference. tonepublications.com/ana…le/ It's the same one that Hank has in Californication if you've watched it?) and an £8000 cd deck (couldn't tell you what make that is though) He is VERY serious about his music. CD sounds incredible on it but vinyl blows it clean out of the water, even to the uneducated ear (ie, mine).

the vast majority of these sales prices are the generic ones on amazon, the only exception I found was range against the machine, £7.99 which is £10 less then amazon. The rest of the records come out at the same price, fairly bad deal if you have prime. Records this cheap on the high street is never a bad thing and for the sake of £8 I'll be picking up rage. Heat added.

It's worth noting that Amazon have price matched the Public Enemy record, so if you have Prime pick it up. Just picked up the Wu-Tang album too but there's only one left at the moment.

This is **** and your friend is a mug.

This is why I have begun moving towards collecting vinyl, because my large CD collection began to look like a load of stationery. The music feels more tangible with vinyl too, and there's actually some resale value if you do have to sell in years to come.

I have bought MP3s via Bandcamp and Amazon before, but it still doesn't feel like you own them. I just wish vinyl was priced closer to £10 than £20, but that's because I'm on a budget. Part of the fun is hunting for gems at boot fairs and in record stores.

What, so his friend is your friend too ? I doubt it and I suspect you're opinion is based on what you've read/been told rather than what you've listened to. Hey, it's horses for courses, my vinyl system is expensive but not to the level mentioned by retrend but it'll wipe the floor with any MP3 system.

Bought In Utero for 9.99 good price.

Ive been collecting vinyl from the 90's+ & back then a 1 track import was £10, so if your getting a 15 song album for £20 is a bargin!

These same kids think there VST synths are as good as an analog synth, and after all there digital processing wonder why there mix doesn't sound as good as the pro's
