Why Have Records Outlasted CD’s, and Will Last Longer Than MP3’s

This made me laugh, because, yes. People who listen to records and claim that they are better than CD’s maybe are snobs. (From the website of DePaul University.) Ever since Napster came onto the scene in the late 90s, the music industry has been in a state of limbo, finding it hard to cope with […]

Records Are Not as Good as CD’s?

I recently came across a post on ViP2 about how the whole idea behind vinyl being better than CD is myth and sentimentality. The author says that CD are superior to vinyl in every way. These are not my thoughts, so don’t get mad at me. It’s not often you write something knowing full well […]

Well, Time Magazine has now just noticed that vinyl records are becoming more popular. How very journalistic of them to be so on top of popular culture (sorry for the sarcasm). After reading their article, I really got the idea that Time thinks that the reason vinyl is selling more is that young people think […]

Ripping MP3’s From Vinyl Records? Copying Your Own Collection?

I have seen a number of articles and posts about whether or not it is legal or ethical to rip an album or CD that you already own to MP3. There are at least two schools of thought on this. The first idea is that once you own something, you own the content. The music […]

Vinyl Records Have the Greatest Sound

I love the sound of vinyl records. I know that a lot of people out there have no idea what I’m talking about, but who cares. If you ask an audiophile which is better, a vinyl record, or a CD, almost every one of them will say vinyl is better. The reason for this is […]
