    That’s funny. My daughter just bought her husband a turn table for Christmas. Vinyl is coming back. Or so they tell me.

    Vinyl is totally coming back. They just had to wait for everyone to trash their old albums and turn tables. Now, everybody has to buy them all over again.

    There has been a core of vinyl lovers who claim it sounds better less mechanical than CD’s.

    More often than not, they have their turntables connected to a $700+ receiver that’s adept at removing hiss, crackle, pops, and other aberrations in the audio stream. That’s all done digitally, but what makes the difference is that the audio is often sampled at 128 khz or higher, whereas a CD is typically 44.1 khz. The music industry half-heartedly tried to get consumers to accept super-audio cd’s recorded at 2822.4 khz, but the higher cost, the need for specialize equipment to read them, and the movement to mp3/aac portable formats killed SACD’s.

    The long-time vinyl lovers don’t digitally remove hiss, crackles, and pops from their vinyl recordings, because they don’t sample, at a high or low sample rate. Everything is analog, front to back. With vinyl in good condition and clean, and a good musical chain from cartridge to speakers, those sorts of noises are not major problems. Of course, those long-time vinyl lovers are also often using equipment (front to back) that is acoustically (and financially) well beyond that $700 receiver and its accompaniment. People used to the quality of sound coming from mp3s played through earbuds or PC type powered speakers would likely be amazed at what comes out of an audiophile level system, but even the best vinyl playing out through those speakers would sound no better than the mp3…
