To Vinyl or Not to Vinyl
I don't have a dog in this fight. The only vinyl i miss nowadays is a 45 of The Little White Duck and my Strawberry Shortcake record. By the time i was allowed to buy music, I was in college and everything was on CD.
But for those of you who do care...
The integral difference between vinyl and CD or MP3 is that a vinyl record is an analogue recording- that is, the physical recording is made to vary in correspondence to the variations in air pressure of the original sound. Put simply, the groove that is cut into the vinyl by the cutting lathe mirrors the original sound wave.
But then he says every sound system is shit anyway, so it really doesn't matter.
I say, "Who cares about the infinitesimal difference in sound quality between vinyl and digital? When are cellphones going to stop sucking compared to a landline?".

I can't even tell the difference between 128kbps and 320kbps mp3s.
