I have streaming services, CD, a turntable and Cassette decks and radio

There are some Albums on Vinyl that you cannot get free on Streaming services and they do sound fantastic.

It's all about Choice and having more options.

Only one I'd contemplate gettting.
Poor selection
What is it about vinyl that attracts people in 2020, surely a bygone age.

Some are under £15 on their own!
Wow, pricing seems like the 1980s Our Price pricing. That's just my first reaction to 2 for £30 - but probably a good price give it's a nice market.
@Skybird Hear a good vinyl set-up and you will hear things you didn't know were possible. In short, well mastered vinyl sounds a lot more dynamic, vivid and engaging than CDs / streaming. 24-Bit music can come quite close though too.
I got reintroduced to vinyl xmas gone when got one of those suitcase player thingys. 20odd years since played a record, but even on one of those, forgot how great they sound really. Just bought a new setup so hopefully get that up and running over the coming weekend. Biggest regret is not keeping the collection going over the years.

I think if you really love a Band its great to own the Vinyl especially all the artwork etc, something a plastic CD can't replicate due to size. Also it kind of feels like your giving something back financially to a band you admire rather than the pittance they'd earn through music streaming services (especially the low key bands)
The amazons 1st album is about £8 on ebay with free postage. (vinyl)

I like having something physical, with art.. there’s no attachment to ‘data’.. Also gets me out of my chair, the handling of LPs.. the physical activity, and discourages skipping tracks so theres an investment/value attributable to playing something .. it also looks cool AF especially with an acrylic platter and some nice coloured vinyl on..

I snagged the Pro-Ject 1Xpression from a deal I posted here myself.. it’s a great sounding deck, you would be surprised.. however I don’t consider the sound to be *technically* better than digital - on technical level digital is always gonna smash vinyl wrt S/N and IMD etc - and hey guys.. most vinyl is cut from those digital masters

There is however something magical about vinyl, it’s hard to describe, it relates to the audible mechanics of a diamond and groove and cantilever interacting... I compare the the exact same recording played from the verified bit-accurate master tapes on Tidal through a £1500 DAC and.. vinyl on the 1Xpression .. the latter just sounds better, more engaging! Sometimes it seems more detailed, that must surely by psychoacoustics..

Even this crackly dirty old vinyl sounds startling IMO (yeh this is my rig and recorded on iPhone)



The one thing I don’t like, is it’s hard to get an affordable record cleaner that does a good job...
Back in 1983 when the Our Price vinyl LP set you back £3.99, everyone was moaning about CD's costing a tenner. Funny old world, isn't it?

Have you listened to Toto's Africa on a really good system? There's instruments I didn't even realise being played on that track. Total game changer!
I have only just go back into Vinyl and did not wish to spend a lot so I got a Sony PS-LX310BT for £155 (I know It's bluetooth but it does sound great when paired with my 33 year old Sony Amp). I had loads of Vinyl in the loft but recently invested in 5 Dire Straights albums which sound great and some other second hand original pressing like JuJu (Banshees) which also sounds amazing.

Got this cleaning fluid from Amazon which does make a difference
amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

and a velvet brush which also helps (I use a microfibre cloth 1st)

I usually pay £3-£10 for most of the bargains in record shops/book Shops although I have bought 4 re issues from Amazon around the £15 mark, 2 of which went straight back due to poor pressings.


Second hand originals are the way to go


It's very satisfying when you snag a bargain.

If you're after a vinyl cleaning method which doesn't involve liquid chemicals and redistribution of dirt then check out the Tonar Tacky.
Tried this the other day and it doesn’t appear to work.... when you get to checkout the discount never gets applied.
Without someone going all "audiophile" on me, when I was a little we used to have a huge radio/sterogram type thing in the house,this thing was the size of a table I'm not sure if it was because I was small but the sound from it was incredible, is there any similar modern day equivalent?

I tell you what, we had something similar and that too had fantastic sound

I also had a 1950's radio recently which had valves inside, again great rich sound.

it seems that anything made decades ago was better quality than what is churned out today.
