improving sound quality from today's better CD-players, there is still a certain
"something" about music from the good old vinyl records.
Analogue reproduktion is still growing more and more
popular. You hear about LP's on radio and TV, and cannot open a newspaper
without someone writing about the growing sale of LPs.
In my world LPs have been there since the 60'ies. I never
lost the interest and bought collections from friends and colleges. Recently
I have made some heavy investments in my analogue sources, and I think this will continue. Listening to LPs with the very best
equipment money can buy, shows even untrained listeners that CD and digital playback still have at long way to go.
